Submission + - First File Sharer Fined By New Zealand's Copyright Tribunal (itnews.com.au)

aesoteric writes: "The first New Zealander has been found guilty by the country's Copyright Tribunal under an anti-file sharing law and ordered to pay a total of NZ$616.57 ($514) for downloading two songs, one of them twice. Controversially, rights holders who brought the action said that merely having BitTorrent software installed on a computer demonstrates flagrancy on the part of the file sharer. A further eleven alleged file sharers await their hearings before the tribunal."
