NZ residents on piracy charges denied bail http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/digital-living/6288082/NZ-residents-on- piracy-charges-denied-bail On the one hand we have USA govt taking out websites without due process (what was feared with the SOPA / PIPA issue) and seeking estradition of people out of NZ to face court in USA. Very scary stuff. On the other hand, we have these global crooks creaming millions out of the system, ultimately at the cost of consumers and businesses. On the face of it, these appear to be seriously bad types, foreigners who don't deserve any protection from NZ. They appear to be more deserving of a stint in Gitmo Bay than many of the folk the USA military put in there. And all with the backdrop of debate over law changes like SOPA / PIPA and our very own "skynet" law. This looks like it could be very interesting.
