Corporate empires and internet pirates: Fighting the anti-file sharing law

On 1 September 2011, the National Government's war on internet piracy will begin in earnest as the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Act comes into force.

The new law signals a new attack on the rights of people to share and consume culture on the information highway, but the facts of the new law are little known.

On Thursday 25 August at Unite Union come hear two speakers discuss the implications of the new law and how we can fight it.



Speakers: Alex Manson, internet freedom activist/IT specialist & Nick Merrington, Socialist Aotearoa
