Challenging blackout

Earl Mardle writes about New Zealand’s proposals to black out alleged copyright infringers – the idea is to cut off their access on the mere accusation of illegal downloading. It sounds draconian and Canute-like.

Still reading Earl’s analysis of how this might work in practice I feel heartened in my view that these bits of centralised silliness will unravel very quickly in the face of intelligent insubordination.

And nice work by kiwis protesting by blacking out their pictures.
