Have Your Say: Intellectual property
Review of the fee that may be charged by Internet Protocol Address Providers
5pm on Monday, 30 April 2012
Clause 7 of the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Regulations 2011 (the Regulations) allows an IPAP to charge a rights owner up to $25 for processing a rights owner notice. The fee was originally set based on estimated costs from IPAPs. The government decided to review the fee after the notice regime had been in force for six months.
The Ministry has published a discussion document and is seeking submissions from IPAPs and right holders about the fee. The closing date for submissions to be received is 30 April 2012.
Submissions on the discussion paper are due by 30 April 2012 and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
