twat.

strike one.

i think kpop is korean pop music. anyway. it sucks to be in new zealand (even more than usual):

this week the new zealand government rushed through its controversial 3 strikes-style law as part of christchurch earthquake emergency legislation. this means that after being ‘suspected’ of sharing copyrighted material online three times, people may be fined and lose their internet access for six months.”

just hours before giving a speech in support of the three-strikes law which is supposed to protect the copyright holders, she (sent that tweet).

lee defended herself by saying that the songs were downloaded legally and paid for. but unfortunately for her that doesn’t mean much. as the national business review points out, when a friend makes a copy of songs that were legally bought, the recipient of the ‘gift’ is still guilty of copyright infringement.

so someone who rushed through (a frankly unimaginable piece of legislation, seriously – have you seen my hard drives?) this law is getting bitten in the ass by it. you twat.
