Business still in need of protection against Copyright infringement

Auckland, 2 April 2009 – Managed Fibre Internet provider NATCOM, continues to promote the virtues of businesses protecting against misuse of their Internet supply even in light of the government’s recent decision to throw out the controversial Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment (New Technologies) Act.

Irrespective of the removal of Section 92A, NATCOM points out that businesses are still exposed to legal and other risks and must protect themselves appropriately.  Revised policy is bound to follow, but in itself will never be enough.

Frayne Cooke, CEO of NATCOM says “irrespective of the removal of Section 92A, copyright infringement is still illegal.”

NATCOM launched its SLAM firewall service last month to help businesses combat misuse of their Internet service.  “In anticipation of Section 92A, we built in a number of features to reduce the risk of copyright infringement.  The risks to business are still very real, and these risks will continue to evolve as new laws are introduced”.

Risks exist not just of the legal kind, but also in costs.  “Unnecessary costs are imposed on businesses when their limited Internet resources are misused, whether intentionally or not, by staff or even outsiders, so a certain level of protection is necessary” says Cooke.

NATCOM’s Chief Commercial Officer, Steve Smith, says they are launching a new managed Fibre Internet service for business under the OneSERVICE brand.  “We’re simplifying business Internet by providing unlimited data use and removing the costs associated with going above service provider-imposed data caps.” 

NATCOM includes the SLAM managed firewall with all of its Fibre Internet services.  “OneSERVICE is a complete managed Internet service for business, with unlimited use, providing all services at one rate, in one bill” says Smith.
