In a press conference on Monday John Key announced that Section 92A would be delayed until March 27th. There is a lot of work ahead but I hope everyone involved takes some time out to celebrate this victory. This shows how modern online movements and efforts can result in real world change. We couldn’t have done it without you — we’ve been amazed and humbled by your support. Thanks everyone!

UPDATE Mon 23 March 09:

Chris Keall at the NBR reports that “Prime Minister John Key has announced that the government will throw out the controversial Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment Act and start again. Section 92A has been scrapped.”. This is fantastic news, and it’s great that Prime Minister John Key has taken a stand on this important issue.
