Another provision in the law allows copyright holders to eventually apply through a court to have alleged repeat offenders' connections suspended for six months, with or without a conviction or proof

not sure how that will stand up on appeal to higher courts

also being a NZ only thing means the kiwi's will just start tunneling out of the country just like millions of chinese do already. remember its a global internet so you can make the violation take place wherever you like.

Its good start but it seems like a bit of a scare with warnings campaign , but I guess thats enough to stop a heap of n00bz . There is already the option of suing people in court , so making a special court to sue people is not really the answer . removing the burden of proof puts the whole thing on shaky ground also. Its just not feasible to sue everyone.
