More Education, less Legislation - Repeal of Section 92 A

For immediate release.

23 March 2009

The New Zealand Open Source Society (NZOSS) is pleased to see the abandonment of the unfair Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment (New Technologies) Act, a move supported by the vast majority of NZOSS members and the ICT community in New Zealand.

Prime Minister John Key announced on Monday that the Government will throw out the controversial section, and Justice minister Simon Power will now initiate a rewrite.
