This week is a crucial week for the Creative Freedom Foundation and New Zealand. With February 28th — and Section 92A — only 11 days away NOW is the time to let the Government know that thousands of New Zealanders are against S92A.

To make sure that happens, CFF have launched week-long Internet Blackout campaign against Guilt Upon Accusation laws in NZ. The blackout movement, taking place from 16-23 February, is rapidly growing with thousands of people in New Zealand modifying their websites, blogs, FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter and Bebo accounts to show their opposition to the law.

* Welcome to Internet Blackout week

* Copywrong Song: Remix Challenge and open call for track contributions

* Public Demonstration
