TV3 news item explaining the ramifications of the proposed s92 on public libraries.

This news item appeared on TV3 last night and is a good explanation of some of the issues public libraries will have to face.

I think it is completely unreasonable, not to mention unfeasible, to make public libraries keep records for six months of every session of internet use, of every hour, of every day plus be able to track down the internet user no matter where they came from!

Join NZ in protesting this ridiculous new law. Popular Twitterer Stephen Fry (yes the comedian) is actively supporting Internet Blackout NZ week as are many other internet users around the world.
