Protest against the Copyright Amendment Bill sign now

The Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill, to (so -call) "combat" internet piracy, is being hastily put through Parliament on the 13 April 2011.

In 2009, petitions and marches had stopped the controversial Section 92a of the Copyright Act to run through again.

This Amendment Bill currently states: "In its original form, Section 122MA of the Bill said an infringement notice issued by a rights holder should be considered “conclusive evidence” of an infringement, though the accused could submit evidence why this was not so. Some people filing submissions on the Bill said this suggested a “guilty until proved innocent” stance." - as quoted from Computer World NZ.
