The Copyright (infringing file sharing) Amendment Act comes into effect as of today. Recently, this has been highlighted across the media channels. But what does this mean for schools? What do you think the implications are? How might we address this?

    From my understanding there is a three strike scenerio that gives us some room to try and stop the problem. I also think that the new law says that the school could be responsible for the $15,000 fine. Is this correct? How would the Ministry react to the operations grant being spent in this way? Would our  insurance cover this kind of expense? I hope I don't have to find out!
