Safely offshore

Don’t like something written about you on the web? Make a copyright complaint to the site’s ISP and they'll immediately take it down, no questions asked, discovers Rob O’Neill. The new copyright law is a typically sloppy piece of legislation. So let me state for the record: Idealog is hosted in the United States, at a web host that won’t take us offline upon request. (If you want us to remove something, bribes remain your best bet.)

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
