NZOSS warns MPs of TPM danger

Today ComputerWorld covered our submission to the Commerce Committee regarding the protections for technical protection measures. A substantial part of our document consisted of arguments made previously by the Ministry of Economic Development and by numerous submissions to the discussion documents previously published.

Those submissions opposing TPM legislation have been soundly ignored by the Government. The reason may be the importance the US puts on copyright legislation similar to the DMCA, and the implications this has in formaing a free trade agreement with the US.
