Did you think our law was based on innocent until proven guilty? Not any\nmore. At least, not if the accuser is an American corporate.\n\nIn NZ, we have the Megaupload saga, where people have been imprisoned,\nassets and funds seized and business wrecked, all before anyone is found\nguilty of anything.\n\nAnd in USA, JotForm.com was taken offline, shutdown without warning or\nreason.\n[URL]http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/02/jotform-domain-seizure/[/URL]\nJotForm is now back on line, but it and its customers must have suffered\nmuch inconvenience and loss with this little exercise. It certainly will\nhave advantaged JotForm's competitors.\n\nIn the UK, RnBXclusive.com has been taken down, and visitors to the site\nwarned that they could face up to 10 years imprisonment.\n[URL]http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17039722[/URL]\n\nThis appears to be developing as a way of wiping out potential commercial\ncompetition. Just accuse them of copyright infringement, and get some over\nenthusiastic (but ignorant) government department to take your competition\nout. It doesn't matter whether they have actually done anything wrong.\n[URL]http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111208/08225217010/[/URL]\n\nThis is getting out of hand. The bad guys need to be stopped, but the law\nmust follow the "innocent until proven guilty" principle.
