Yes, I actually agree with you. However, I also agree with John's often put point.
The lure of downloading for the masses is the total ease of use without consequences. So unless someone more techie does the 'tunneling' for them, most everyday pirates will stop or be slowed. To put it another way, the average person isn't going to work hard at circumventing the NZ internet, but if someone else does it for them, and as a result continues to provide illegal downloads for kiwis, then I think these measures might not be enough.
