Prior to the election Labour announced that they would be looking at the regulatory framework for the distribution of digital content, a first principles review of the copyright act, and to modernise telecommunications regulation.

With New Zealand’s favourite Internet gathering now only days away, and with the new Minister in attendance, this is the internet community’s opportunity to ask The Hon Clare Curran questions about her views on delivering internet access to all New Zealanders and how she sees NZ’s future creative potential best being developed.

NetHui is where the internet community comes together to talk about the challenges and opportunities the Internet brings to us all - personally and professionally. An exciting programme is on offer with many opportunities to discuss freedom of expression, the changing regulatory environment, and a proposed digital bill of rights.

For the full NetHui programme go to: 2017.nethui.nz/programme

To register for this year’s NetHui go to: 2017.nethui.nz/register

About NetHui

NetHui isn't a conference, it’s a discussion where the community comes together to talk about the challenges and opportunities the Internet brings to us all - personally and professionally.

Participation is at the heart of every NetHui: participants can be as involved as they like, get in the thick of it or listen and learn, it’s up to them. The programme is varied:

Each day kicks off with a plenary session with keynotes and panels.

At the heart of NetHui are the hour-long discussion and download sessions on topics and issues put forward by the NetHui community.

There are also a number of meetups and networking opportunities in the evenings, where people can indulge in specific areas of interest, unwind and have some fun.

Diverse and thoughtful contributions are equally valued and celebrated at NetHui. People of all ages, background, gender and ethnicity are encouraged to attend. A respectful, open attitude towards others is expected from all participants, speakers, exhibitors and volunteers.

The NetHui Kaupapa and Code of Conduct is available at 2017.nethui.nz/code-of-conduct
