Transcript of Copyright Act

Copyright Amendment Act 2011 The law is called the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Act 2011. It amends the Copyright Act 1994 to provide owners of copyrighted works such as movies, TV shows and music a quicker and easier way to penalise people infringing their copyright via online file sharing. Only online file sharing that infringes copyright.

“File sharing” is defined by the new law as:
· material uploaded or downloaded from the Internet (and)
· using an application or network that enables the simultaneous sharing of material between multiple users.

Anything that doesn’t meet both parts of this definition is not covered by the new law.

The intention of the law changes is to crack down on peer-to-peer file sharing. This means using peer-to-peer protocols like Gnutellaand BitTorrent with peer-to-peer software like uTorrent, BitComet, FrostWire, Ares, LimeRunner, and Vuze. Under the new law, the account holder is liable, whether or not he or she was the person who actually downloaded or uploaded the infringing file.

The account holder will get infringement notices and be fined by the Copyright Tribunal.

The person who owns the Internet account (account holder) is liable, even if he or she wasn’t the person who broke the law.

Allegations of copyright infringement made against the account holder by the copyright owner are presumed to be correct unless they give evidence or reasons why they aren’t guilty. What is it: What’s covered by the law changes: What is eer - to - Peer file sharing? Who will this affect? We will send customers a notice in the same way as we send them a bill.

They will get 2 notices (warnings) and then, following the 3rd notice*, the copyright owner can take them to the Copyright Tribunal.

Depending upon circumstances, generally the minimum penalty is $275 and maximum $15,000, payable to the copyright owner.

*3 notices MUST be from 1 Rights Owner or 1 notice from 8 different Rights Owners* How will customers be notified? Where to g for more info? 3strikes.net.nz Click on MORE and choose Fullscreen
