Tech Liberty was a co-signer on this letter to Simon Power about the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill.
The three main areas covered by the letter and briefing are:
- Avoiding the possible reversal of burden of proof when people are accused of infringement (section 122MA).
- Account holder liability for shared internet connections when the account holder would have no way of controlling the users of the connection.
- Mechanism for activating the suspended “account suspension” provisions.
