According to a recent BBC study, nearly 4 out of 5 people across 26 countries think that Internet access is a fundamental right. Progressive countries like Finland have made rulings supporting this as a human right already. Yet the three-strikes rules within ACTA as well as The Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Bill would threaten to take this right to communication from New Zealand citizens and their families without their consent, for what may be little more than the cost of a retail sale that was never there to lose (and that's only if the media was publicly available in New Zealand at all). Let punishments fit the crimes.
