In New Zealand, the government is using their uncouth powers to enact The Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill. This Bill will allow the New Zealand government to use legal means to punish those who download alleged copyright material without paying for it. Punishments for these so called "criminal acts" are severe. Some including stupendous amounts of money or ridiculous suspensions from internet usage.

The right to information is free, and New Zealand needs to be reminded of that. The new law is set to establish a "three strike" penalty, to help stamp out piraters and those that are "wrongdoers" in the eyes of the government. The "rightful owners" of the copyrighted information will notify your ISP's, and your ISP's will send you a letter of admonition. After three strikes, the copyright owner can take a claim to the Copyright Tribunal. There, a maximum fine of $15,000 can be placed upon you, or a six month hiatus from the internet. However, to take matters to uttermost stupidity, they have decided that if after 2 years many people are still illegally downloading, they will increase the maximum fine and suspension sentences. This law will also apply to cellular devices in the beginning of 2013.

New Zealand has just crossed the line. Anonymous can not and will not stand for this. I ask you, is the right to information not free? Are you telling me that I should pay $15,000 for a DvD that costs $20? That's 750x the value. Do you think your petty attempts to stop the very people who created you will suffice? I think not. New Zealand, you now have the full attention of Anonymous. We will make a quick example of you.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forigve.
