The New Zealand government has revealed details of its revamped anti-piracy legislation, which will include a three-strikes warning procedure. If rightsholders provide ISPs with alleged infringers’ details, they’ll get three warning letters, after which the rightsholder will be able to seek a penalty of “up to $15,000” at the NZ Copyright Tribunal, based on the damages incurred. If “serious and continued breaches” continue from that user, the rightsholders can go to court to request “a range of remedies”, including six-month account suspensions. Consumers will be able to request hearings if they feel they’re being unfairly penalised. “I’m confident we now have a workable solution,” says commerce minister Simon Power. Source: Press Release
