A worrying development indeed.

 From slashdot:

> "Next month, New Zealand is scheduled to implement Section 92 of the  
> Copyright Amendment Act. The controversial act provides 'Guilt Upon  
> Accusation,' which means that if a file-sharer is simply accused of  
> copyright infringement he/she will be punished with summary Internet  
> disconnection. Unlike most laws, this one has no appeal process and  
> no punishment for false accusation, because they were removed after  
> public consultation. The ISPs are up in arms and now artists are  
> taking a stand for fair copyright."
