+ - Copyright law claims first victim in NZ->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The first music pirate stung under new file-sharing laws has been fined $616 but "didn't realise" the actions were illegal.

The Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ) — which represents music studios — took an unnamed offender to the Copyright Tribunal last year for sharing songs on the internet — a track by Barbadian pop-star Rihanna on two occasions and the other by Nashville band Hot Chelle Rae.

In a decision released today, the tribunal found in RIANZ's favour and ordered the offender (who was a Telecom customer) to pay a penalty $616.57."
