An anti-Internet Piracy law is being passed through New Zealand Parliament tonight. The Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill will ban illegal file sharing and copyright owners can also request that repeat offenders lose internet access for six-months. While many of the copyright enforcers use IP addresses in order to track down infringers, it is not an accurate location of the infringer.
