Your Best Friend WOULD Tell You

Maybe you're wondering about the black graphic where the turkey normally has been.

I'm a blogger (you've probably noticed) and a Podcaster (ditto), and I have friends in New Zealand.  That's why I read with some dismay the Electronic Frontier Foundation article on New Zealand's planned enforcement of their poorly-written copyright law.  The DMCA was Dumb when it was introduced here in the US, and it's Dumber there.  Here the legislators mangled their rules; in New Zealand, they apparently simply glossed over the parts that were done wrong here.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, they say.  Ignorance in writing laws is inexcuseable.  To the legislators of New Zealand, here's one more American voice, very much a Kiwiphile, but I have to say, "Et tu, Brute?"

For more info, here's a link to the Creative Freedom Internet Blackout Page.
