NZ Government urged to impose total internet ban for pirates

The government in New Zealand is being urged to impose a complete internet ban for online pirates.

The call has been made by the New Zealand Law Society, which believes the proposed three-strike bill is not enough to stem piracy.

The body argues that current proposals to suspend suspected infringers under investigation will simply drive them to sign up to another ISP where they can continue illegal uploading and downloading.

Clive Elliott of the New Zealand Law Society has been quoted as saying, "The Bill proposes that District Courts be able to order a six month suspension of a person's Internet Services Provider (ISP) account for serious copyright infringement.

However, during this period, it appears that there is nothing to stop that person from opening an account with another ISP and immediately continuing illegal file sharing. The Bill should include a power to allow the court to order that a person cannot open an account with another ISP during the period of the suspension."
