Jules Verne, Leonardo Da Vinci conjured during New Zealand's 'three strikes' debate.

The passing of New Zealand's controversial Three Strikes Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Bill did not come without its more entertaining moments.

The team at iTnews can thoroughly recommend readers listen from the one minute mark to this highly informative piece of commentary from Jonathan "Terminator" Young, MP for New Plymouth, one of the politicians supporting the legislation.

"When you think about it, Leonardo Da Vinci drew helicopters, Jules Verne painted submarines," he said.

"Do you remember the movie the Terminator? I’m sure that you do. And the computer system called SkyNet that ruled the world! It’s like the internet today!

"And the internet creates so many opportunities but with those opportunities come infringement of people’s rights. This legislation is about bringing some order to the chaos that surrounds the globe because of technology.”
