US is the enemy for New Zealand judge in Megaupload case
“We have met the enemy, and he is the US” – according to a National Business Review report that’s a quote from New Zealand judge David Harvey. He is supposed to lead the MegaUploload / Kim Schmitz / Kim Dotcom hearing which was delayed until March 2013.
This statement was made last week during a conference, opening the campaign “A Fair Deal” which is targeting against further strengthening the New Zealand copyright laws by a planned anti-piracy treaty of pacific border states. The “Trans Pacific Partnership” treaty is increasingly criticized by several groups who fear that this will further reduce Internet freedom as well as fundamental rights and access to educational content or affordable medication or even circumventing DVD Region Codes.
