Could New Zealand's Parliament Lose Its Internet Connection Under Its Own Three Strikes Law?
from the looks-that-way dept
But you know who else might be liable? The New Zealand Parliament itself! Boing Boing points us to the news that the Green Party has put out a press release pointing out that even the Parliament might run afoul of the new law, and could risk fines or losing its internet connection.
"This law could bring the gears of government to a grinding halt because the holder of the account — Parliamentary Services — provides internet access to hundreds of users any one of whom could cause infringement notices to be sent."Not only that, but they note that no one in Parliament has set up a plan to deal with any potential infringement notices, which could put them into even greater trouble. Of course, other MPs will likely claim that this clearly doesn't apply to Parliament, which just shows the ridiculous double standard of such laws.
