New Zealand Prime Minister John Key today announced that Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment Act (also known as teh Guilt upon accusation law) has been delayed to 27th March. The law would force ISPs to cut the Internet connection of anybody accused of copyright infringment. Neither court approval nor proper evidence in support of the infringement claims are needed. The law was initially intended to take effect on 28th February. 

The Creative Freedom Foundation is organizing a protest Internet Blackout today to protest the Guilt upon accusation law.
