Don’t make Kiwis wait

In my blog at I propose:

New Zealand should ask for the US to commit to a law change that any copyrighted material released in the US for sale, can also be immediately sold (or re-sold) to New Zealand consumers.

So if a US studio releases an episode on iTunes for 99c the day after it is broadcast in the US, then no more blocking New Zealanders from being able to buy it.

Such a law change would probably do more to reduce infringing file-sharing of TV shows, than any amount of punitive measures.
