Greens Launch Parody & Satire Bill

Gareth Hughes of The Greens has just launched a bill to amend NZ Copyright law so that Parody & Satire are protected in NZ (read the bill here). This is great news for NZ Artists who have ever made, or thought about making, works that make critical comments through found source material.

Australia got this in 2006, and the US has had it for aaages, so its about time NZ caught up and gave its artists the same protections.

Hughes will be holding an online Q&A session from 6-7pm tonight (9 November 2011). Check it out here.
