Two New Zealand ISPs have confirmed that they have sent third-strike warnings to customers accused of persistent illegal filesharing on their networks. TelstraClear and Orcon have both confirmed that they have sent the final warnings, under graduated response programmes introduced last year. Both customers have one week to lodge a dispute, and if they don’t, they will be referred to the country’s Copyright Tribunal, which has the power to punish them with a fine of up to $15k. TorrentFreak claims that all the warning notices sent out by ISPs so far are the result of reports from the music industry body RIANZ, rather than its equivalent in the film industry.
