South Pacific pictures supports s92a

South Pacific Pictures, producers of Outrageous Fortune, Shortland Street, Whale Rider and Sione’s Wedding has added its support to introduction of s92a of the Copyright Act.

John Barnett says, “This section is the front line protection for copyright holders, whose work is being stolen on a constant basis on the net. The legislation requires Internet Providers to take some responsibility for what appears on their sites, just as print publishers, T.V and radio stations are responsible for material they disseminate.”

Illegal use of material on the Internet threatens the livelihood of writers, actors, directors, producers, musicians and artists.

We need legislation to protect this, and s92a does just that.

John Barnett
Chief Executive
