Blackout coverage

[Additional: Just made another image of what the top 50 NZ-based blogs looked like on the morning of the protest. This image may be of use to bloggers to give some idea of the solidarity. It is free to copy, use and share... unlike things made by Hollywood.
(Click on image to enlarge)


[UPDATE-- 4:50PM:Our protest - an unprecedented one - appears to have been successful. Reports coming in that the government has delayed the controversial copyright law provisions.
--UPDATE ENDS]

These images are a mosaic of what the front pages of the top 50 or so NZ-based blogs looked like this morning. Please note that most blogs that do not appear fully blacked out also have postings or ads supporting the protest (click on scrolling ad banner above to visit the official site).
No news yet on what or even if Cabinet has decided (or not) to do something about it.

The blogs with a lot to lose were particularly conscientious.

"...without evidence, without a fair trial, and 'without punishment' for any false accusations of copyright infringement."

DEBORAH POWELL DOES NOT REPRESENT STUDENTS ON THIS MATTER!


I'm sorry mate but the media are letting us down on this one.Voluntary bonding should not provide cash incentives to rich students who have no student loans.The students association
