New Zealand Tribunal Issues First Graduated Response Decision

The New Zealand tribunal responsible for copyright graduated response cases has issued its first decision.
The tribunal ordered an individual to pay $616.57, which included $6.57
for three songs, $50.00 for notice fees, $200 for the application fee,
and a $360 deterrent fee ($120 per song). Most striking is that the New
Zealand law forces the tribunal to statutorily presume infringement,
despite an absence of evidence and denials by the individual.
