PRIVACY IS NOT A CRIME – IT IS NOW AN INDUSTRY NEEDING LOOKING IN TO – IN ORDER TO COUNTERACT HEAVY “SECURITY INDUSTRIES” TECHNOLOGY SALES GAMES
–Tim McBride shares his concerns in an article, you can read direct @link.
My view is: if you live online, there’s no privacy. Even if you type anything on a pc or a smart phone, or talk on the phone, someone can get it, if they really want the info. So the best policy is to try and live life in the open. Then you have no fear.
However, I absolutely respect advocates like Tim who are keeping privacy and space boundaries for citizens rights in check. I lived in Hollywood when I witnessed paparazzi mobbing Britney Spears personal space. There’s no way a person could have been sane with sixty paparazzi stalking her. She would drive in her car, so fast cause she had to. Paparazzi on motorbikes would be on either side of her car in the chase. It was surreal. So space protectors can be kinda groovy too. What all celebrities loved about Spears was that she was successful in getting protection space laws introduced, to observe her physical personal space. Her friends also won, when she spent the dosh to do that. Her gift to her people. Everyone thought, right on… when that happened.
What Tim says:
New laws are undermining legal limits on surveillance, threatening a basic freedom.
NZ government departments and banks etc, totally leaked info this year. It was defined as being ”the year of the data breach”.
Privacy goes beyond personal information (for example, placing limitations on when agencies can disclose information they’ve collected about you). The Privacy Act 1993 deals with those concerns.
What is meant by privacy? Tim asks. (more…)

JUDGE HARVEY THINKS USA’S MILITARY ACQUISTION OF DIGITAL DATA & IT MILITARY SPYING VERGES ON BEING FBI DISNEYLAND STATUS
In “Fair Deal” privacy protection news: ”District Court Judge David Harvey has heard parts of the case against the Megaupload founder, who was arrested with three colleagues in January after a request from the United States. The FBI has accused Dotcom and others working at Megaupload website of the world’s biggest case of criminal copyright violation.”
Interesting. Also check out Corin Dann‘s interview with Pamela Jones Harbour of how Google and the USA are totally getting all up in everyone’s business IP mix.
Also what goes up in “the cloud computing arena” will be shared with Google’s mates, so the culture of Insider Trading is totally being facilitated by the USA who are masters at creative IP fusion. “Skins are us,” is the mobile telephony and IT tablet culture of US ideas going into the machine quicker and being churned out as US ideas, quicker so than what most other nations (bar China) can churn out new ideas in new forms. Or more to the point, the fused IP ideas are made by Americans in China, then returned back to the US as China products, even denying American citizens jobs.
It’s not entirely the USA’s fault. Americans consome more than any other nation. They have to keep up with the demand of consumption is the theory of “incorporating” ideas quicker. The pace of consumption you only understand if you actually do a two-year or more period of time within the USA. That, and not being very good at being no.2, drive this compulsion in the USA’s culture. Not every American is like that though, of course. :)
The same can be said of Steven Joyce‘s new super ministry in New Zealand too. A business hub has the same ability to collect the best business templates. A future area of IP law could grow as if NZ author’s biz templates were to be hacked into (it does happen), there could be court cases ahead of inventors and patent protection of biz owners ideas etc. New ideas are more addictive than pharmaceutical drugs to American people. They respond openly to innovation as innovation is one of the redeeming qualities of America as a nation. When dong good, they create pictures of liberty on display for the world. The attention span of Americans is always all about ‘the next new thing.’ In addition telecommunications companies need to guarantee emailed documents are not going down the wire, or through the airwaves to a hub of data collection too, that could abuse creative peoples incentives to create useful products more.
So in such a culture, it’s about remembering manners where you can and giving credit to where the ideas came from – and co-partnering on IP whakapapa rather than just taking it from the authors without credit. So I guess this isn’t a privacy issue alone, it is a meanness of spirit issue and potentially an industry of blackmail too with facts gathering.
So much of foreign affairs trade deals, trades gossip as capital to acquire stuff. That’s why more negotiators at the table is healthy, as if dirt is found on a nation’s key negotiator through IT they will trade off more than they should, for personal reasons. That is not what they were elected to do, so such deals are illegal without the consent of the citizen’s who own the assets being traded (including all IP and data of citizen’s of one particular nation’s habits, thoughts, work too). Such invisible illegal trade set ups need to cease until democracy on issues of trade have occurred with the citizens who own them.
So, because leaders are a target, a team of honest people helps reduce that culture and leverage of greed in trade deals. At best a team seeks to serve the children in a nation’s potential now and down the track. IT gives the US an advantage to plan this path for American citizen children, and also the nations the USA trades this information to for certain things the USA wants. China has been planning like this down the track for years. Therefore, the authors of the ideas, who are not the property or cattle of any State, often get robbed in this process of fair reward. More needs to be said of this style of culture at corporate and political level.
The USA is very good at a style of negotiating that trades heavily on gossip leverage, as shown with the Wikileaks diversion that demolished foreign affairs trust among nations, while being the perfect diversion for the Global Financial Crises shake, rattle n’ roll corporate banking crimes too. This should not be surprising though, as the internet was first designed for military purposes and the military were using the technology, long before anyone else knew of IT’s existence or capabilities.
The nature of IT is military information acquisition. After that lifestyle. Then sharing information. Entertainment distraction and education also feature as drawcards of audiences to IT. Oh, and of course E-Commerce as well. The more time online, the more information is collected of you. If this is the case, there’s nothing to fear, just live life in the open. Or live a life offline. Be more honest is the gift of IT to us all.
One should never fear an IT company’s knowledge of the individual. Or the government trading this information. It’s like ‘get a life.’ Trading secrets about people can tend to cramp life, not add to it, so as individuals we have to choose to live free from any fear in an IT world. Just do it. Needless to say, laws need to change to protect IT data mined information about individuals and their civil and human rights. If we don’t do this, we are not being humane. Too corporate greedy.
One of the strange ironies in the world is that the Security Industries that tax payers pay for, actually is used against citizens too and can be relabelled The Insecurity Industries in such instances. The latter name being more honest about that exhorbitant tax spend. IT also stitches elections through data mining and manipulating IT too. Elections are ’won’ on the biggest budgets for IT and media spend these days. That’s why youth are reacting so weirdly, as they feel like democracy isn’t in the air any more. In many cases on key issues, they’re quite right. I mean, there’s only so many video games you can play to express your anger or distract yourself until you acquire grey hair to then be seen with an opinion, as a young person. So democracy needs to be restored to give youth a feeling of a true sense of home in nations that offer democratic process as an expression of freedom, liberty and hope to have a decent chance of achieving an attainable dream in country’s somehow by a miracle, fortunate enough to still have this reality achievable for its own citizens. That is the essence of human rights in operation. How do we get back to that center?
On the topic of spying for capital gain (a US artform generating billionaires in the game), watch the rather stunning PJH above.
Judge Harvey is not due to hear the internet mogul’s extradition case until next year but made his views on copyright known during the launch of the “Fair Deal” campaign last week.
The campaign is opposing any changes to New Zealand’s copyright laws that may form part of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.
The TPP trade deal is currently being negotiated and the 13th round of talks are finishing up.
The negotiations are secret but it is known that the United States entertainment industry is pushing for stronger copyright provisions among the 11 countries in the Asia-Pacific region negotiating the deal. America is a melting pot of many cultures ideas. There are Maori and Polynesian characters all over Nickelodean’s children’s channel in the US for example – yet the same rule of thumb does not go back to New Zealand or Polynesia peoples of the South Pacific, for such cultural appropriation the US forgets they borrow heavily from all the time and disguise with costumes, diverse casting calls and of course, the American accent and a poker face too. The US is a shell, needing inspiration to reinvent new consumable products for its people. An American told me that and it is true. So the ball needs to go back to the center of the copyright issue. If the US is honest about that. Drop the poker face. Trade deals that are win-win are based on trust. This is only evident when honesty without pretense is present in trade deals processes and trading citizens peoples concerns are actually being listened to and upheld. How do we ensure such an environment of trading occurs. Otherwise all deals should be off. As a Kiwi, I know, the NZ people can wait until such an environment is present at the table. So, it’s America’s call to find a medium of negotiating culture that is in the center of what America thinks it knows and what others know to.
Judge Harvey also quoted media analyst, journalist and political debater Russell Brown‘s tweet on the topic from earlier on: “we have met the enemy and he is [the] U.S.” Judge Harvey’s remark is a play on the line “we have met the enemy and he is us” by American cartoonist Walt Kelly. Brown and Judge Harvey are referring to DVD codes copying that robs filmmakers of their next farm purchase, or shares acquistion as a virtual farmer in Fonterra in New Zealand, something shocking!
I don’t know how such Oscar winning filmmakers can sleep easily at night, as well as being such high profile activists for indigenous peoples rights too. They’re incredible!
Crown Law, which is representing the FBI in the extradition case, would not comment on the issue.

PETER DUNNE TALKS QUALITY CONTROL OF SYNTHETIC HERBAL HIGHS, KIM DOTCOM & PETER JACKSON’S HOBBIT PLANS NEWS
New Zealand Government Reviews Party Pills culture: “Manufacturers of herbal highs and recreational drugs will now be responsible for proving their products are safe before they can be sold.
Associate Minister of Health Peter Dunne said new regulations reverse “the onus of proof” by making all party pills and other herbal highs illegal until they are proved safe for sale.”
More timely Quality Control News at TVNZ. How will our Brit friends cope now?! :)
In other news, US ‘the enemy’ says Dotcom judge. Too funny. Peter Jackson wants a medal for resourceful filmmaking, going with a vision of parlaying more Oscars from his gift of cinematic auteurship. Can he get more films from a master novelist’s book. Also read: Jackson is not done with the Hobbits industry just yet.
Yeah – it’s like, there needs to be way more action scenes of adventurous scenes, so that the Hobbiton theme park can happen. So, I guess, you keep at it. Hobbits it just what the man does.

In Totally Illegal Families – Kim Dotcom News via The Age, Oz: “Perceptions of the Megaupload founder are changing rapidly as he fights extradition from New Zealand to the US.
AUCKLAND: Last month, a New Zealand software developer, Ben Gracewood, replied to a Twitter post from the internet tycoon Kim Dotcom, founder of the Megaupload file-sharing site that had been shut down by the FBI.
Gracewood asked Dotcom whether “you guys just drive around in modified electric vehicles and pose for photos”, referring to an image Dotcom, 38, had just posted showing three of his associates with golf buggies and a Segway. “I could live like that,” Gracewood wrote.
Twenty minutes later he got a surprising response from the mogul: “Come over now!” So Gracewood and a friend went to the most expensive house in the country — a mansion worth $NZ24 million ($19 million), rented by Dotcom, a German citizen — for a swim and some cupcakes. Twitter users across New Zealand watched with fascination as the group posted updates and photos of the visit.
Wait, there’s more: (more…)
The Globe and Mail reports today: “The perimeter US-Canada security deal puts the personal information of Canadians at risk because in some cases it allows the United States to pass that data to other countries without permission, says the federal privacy watchdog.
When I lived in Hollywood, one of the faces that made me smile, was Judith Collins. Both Judith and Hekia Parata were three of the rising stars, of National party politics’ girls at the time.
Today, Collins is in the hot seat. She inherited a department of blabber mouths, leaking private emails of clients’ data. This is her crime she’s accused of. Calls from the opposition over an ACC debacle privacy breach - want her resignation tendered. I think that’s an extreme overaction. With those baby Muldoon cheekbones, she should stay, for not being him or for not being a set prop at Backbenchers Pub either.
However, I think that in a recession (GFC hang-over years) many people are hitting that ACC vein too hard. If anything, that is an issue of debate, Collins needs to solve. It’s also why immigration rules need to be tight. There are still too many of some citizens in jail over some other citizens. They’re not claiming ACC, but in jail. That needs a review too, in conjunction with ACC abuse levels being so high.
I write this hearing that 1.7 million claims for ACC occurred in the last year. I never knew NZ was so sickly. I think it’s not true – that we’re that sickly. ACC can be like a glamorized dole for spoilt kids that fuels the pharmaceutical and medical industries’ veins, as well as being there for those who genuinely need it. The Hansel & Gretal fable springs to mind, although I see Collins more as Charlies Angels in her role as a Kiwi star of politics.
I wrote this post, because Judith isn’t smiling anymore like she used to. Life is too precious and too short to not smile. Don’t sweat the small stuff. :)
How will Collins reign in such issues? TVNZ offers an angle: Collins must refocus ACC lobby group.
Hazel Armstrong (no relation to cyclist Lance) said: “She’s got to refocus the whole organisation and the people she appoints on the claimant. That’s a big thing for her to do because they’ve been running down the track of a private insurance company that’s all about the bottom line and making a profit. Rebuilding trust [is needed too].”
Paula Rebstock – originally of Montana (woot!), will leave Paula Bennett’s Westie side and join Collins to sort out this silly nonsense, desperate, shambles overrun of money downloads from all kinds of people telling porkies to get it – as if its a bank with its own money printing press. Where do these people think they live? Hollywood Wall Street?! Then there are the genuine people who didn’t fake it, who need it… who feel a bit less private now. They have grounds to feel a tad bit upset.
Having Kiwis being valued as people, our best assets, and keep their body parts on the job, instead of being relieved of them, could be a smart idea! Faking it, is overrated. How many people who voted National, collect ACC? How many people who voted Labour or Greens collect ACC? What was the levels of payments paid out to who? Top sixty payments, went to who?

Are US police really using phone tracking as a routine tool?
I know the police ‘don’t like to miss out ever’ … but that’s totally outrageous!
One US police training manual describes cellphones as “the virtual biographer of our daily activities.”
But it seems that cellphone companies that invoice police ($2,200 a pop for a ‘full-scale wiretap’ of a phone) to track civilians’ phones are the ones making bank off the tax payer (so the rich who own cell phone companies are being majorly rewarded in this process) – while police who are tracking neighborhoods’ citizens’ phones at an alarming rate (often without court permission prior), are now under speculation for being too in your face sticky beaky.
The issue has taken on new legal urgency in light of a Supreme Court ruling in January finding that a Global Positioning System tracking device placed on a drug suspect’s car violated his Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches. While the ruling did not directly involve cellphones — many of which also include GPS locators — it raised questions about the standards for cellphone tracking, lawyers say.
Obviously cell phone technology can be useful to help the popo (say in the case of a kidnapping), yet how accountable are the police (who can suffer from pack mentality of do-your-own-thingism) to citizen’s privacy and also the laws of the land?
Will this mean American citizens will now use their phones less? Quite possibly.

PRIVACY INVASION IN NEW ZEALAND – THE POLICE ACCESSING FAMILIES COMS – NEW ZEALAND AS THE COSBY SHOW WIRED AS A PRISON SET
To invade citizens privacy without just cause is a form of psychological violins. It is a form of imprisonment without reason, logic, justice or respect of the human right to privacy.
- – -
Q: What do you think of the new laws in New Zealand that allow government to look at all your communications without reason, cause or permission?
I’ve joked on this blog before: “would you buy key shares in prison management programs or prisons in New Zealand?” regarding the phenomenon that New Zealand has with control issues (a disease) to lock up and incarcerate a higher number of people than almost all other nations in the OECD. Prison is a big earning industry in New Zealand. A sad one, but it pays for those heavily invested in ‘the prison games’.
Many journalists last week devoted time, attention, thoughts, words, energy to this cultural fact of incarcerating Kiwis at high rates. What can be done about shifting more to rehabilitation centers rather than ‘lock up’ ones? seems to be where the justice system is moving their time and attention towards these days. At least there’sa health focus, that’s good.
I think New Zealand as a nation is moving more and more down the track of just being wired (through IT and new laws too) to be like one big giant prison. That may upset some people, but it is true. We need to move away from seeing prison as ‘behind bars’ in prison ‘institutions’ but more about the invasion of peoples privacy within the borders of New Zealand. More specifically we are being invaded from outside forces – even suggesting to impost these laws onto New Zealand people, through our parliamentary actors.
Awakening to the radio this morning at 6am, I heard politician Hone Harawira talking about the new ‘temporary measures surveillance bill laws’ that are passing through New Zealand’s parliament currently. Hone said:
“So under these new laws, the police have the right to bug my granddaughter’s telephone, go into my daughters email account as they want to and download all the files on my wife’s computer hard drive without asking consent prior and with no just cause except what the police are directed to do.”
Okay, shades of South Africa flashed through my mind (of back in the day!) when awakening to this news. Shades of Nazi Germany also flashed through my mind.
So in answer to the question from a reader today about these new laws, my thoughts are:
a) it gives the political power in charge, an unfair advantage when they hold such information about their opposition political candidates.
b) friends of politicians – can be rewarded with a competitors advantage in potential ‘inside trading biz deals knowledge’
c) it reaks of paranoia gone wrong. Worse or equal to higher incarceration rates in actual prisons.
d) it feels like foreign law imposed on New Zealand – (via the UN, the World Bank? or a combo of these influences), New Zealand people and culture. We did not vote for this to happen or alter our culture as a people. So, why are our politicians being directed to impose this upon us?
e) it makes IT, surveillance services providers demi-gods with the wealth increase they generate from this and the power they wield with the police – and feed up to the sources that have requested this degree of access to peoples lives. On the other hand, it’s a wake up call of everything we do online, is already being watched, perhaps.
f) if you remove privacy from citizens it shows that the realtionship between the State and its citizens is in a state of ‘serious trust issues deficit.’ Or, under such a regime, there is no relationship as all relationships are based on trust. This doesn’t show any trust from the state towards the average citizen of New Zealand, so it is a system that is flawed and is bound to fail and be overturned in the future.
g) it turns New Zealand into a reality TV styled prison – where the police are given too much power to fetch information for an elite few.
h) No one’s IP is safe any longer in such conditions, so it is actually a damaging non-incentive for creatives to create more in such an environment as IP theft and IP trading will occur under such conditions.
i) “the system was hacked into” will be the ‘excuse’ for the next wave of news headlines in wikileaks styled news stories – if these laws happen. We live in the age of hacking, so this does not protect NZ citizens privacy. The government repeatedly drops the ball on private information leaks of citizens as we’ve witnessed with government emails accidentally forwarded to others only in the last week.
j) because of i) IP is not protected, this system is damaging to the NZ economy’s growth.
k) where will Kiwis data and information be sent to outside of New Zealand? If this system goes ahead.
l) In regards to Maori, our communications are ‘taonga’ protected under The Treaty of Waitangi so this would be a breach of the law to give our information (whanau coms) away to others. Law suits lie ahead.
m) it impairs, alters, thwarts the very roots of democracy. Change (for the good) can never even get off the ground and occur as people (catalysts of change) could be targeted, spied on, framed for their unique expressions of democracy.
n) it feels like communism. And, it is simply not New Zealand. It’s a form of force and foreign foreign rule being superimposed upon Kiwis psyches.
o) my final thought is a funny one: that being, in such an environment of living on a ‘wired prison set’ where police eyes watch everything you write, create and do etc… is that families will just have to be really good at writing creative family story lines amongst each other. At least turn on a show, if there are leaks of private information about families in the future – make the reader laugh. So… We’re the Cosby Show then in New Zealand is the thought.

NEW ZEALAND CHILDREN ARE VALUED CITIZENS – THEY ARE NOT GUINEA PIGS OF THE STATE, ARE NOT PROPERTY OF THE STATE TO BE EXPERIMENTED ON WITH DATA COLLECTION EXPERIMENTS
Today I read, Russell Wills thinks ”privacy laws should be reversed to require schools, health, welfare and justice services to share information when any one of them raised child protection concerns. He also suggested enrolling all newborn babies on the national immunisation register and with a family doctor and a Well Child service, unless the parents opted out – reversing the current rules requiring parents to opt in.”
Without too much thought, I question whether Russell is really a drug mule ferret for Pharmaceutical companies sales-flogging future in New Zealand, more so than anything else. He sounds very “scientific” but, he’s not. Here is my view on Russell WIll’s proposals.
New Zealanders are in a war with the current government, to uphold the normal rights to privacy. No more is this underthreat, than in families. (more…)
I was going to update this blog post a while ago but I had to film myself ten times before I felt in the appropriate zapper Kiwi voyeuristic penguin mood to so. Watching Francois Truffaut films at the same time helped get the concept as well, in that artsy kinda way. Here we go then…
When it comes to turning your provence into a reality TV show with hidden cameras, Hollywood’s got nothing on us – Surveillance Bill a credit to House by Derek Cheng.
“The Government has eaten a slice of humble pie in paying tribute to other parties whose support it needed to pass a bill so police could turn their secret cameras back on.
The Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Bill passed into law under urgency yesterday.
It means police, the Security Intelligence Service and others will be able to lawfully use hidden cameras on private property with a search warrant.
Police will be able to turn on the cameras in 13 investigations that were switched off after the Supreme Court decision on September 2, which ruled that such surveillance was illegal. But the courts will decide in 47 pending cases involving 229 suspects whether to admit illegally obtained video evidence.
There’s a feeling in New Zealand of like, living in Ancient Egypt. The Pharoah’s eye is too lusty and has mistakenly thought that citizens are property of politicians leaking information to other nations.
On one hand there’s a small cluster of individuals who’ve been successful at rolling $500 million a pop, of investors monies – but again, that’s not the bulk of most people. Does the State need more powers granted it to delve into the tax records of all of its citizens?
Security is different to insecurity. Insecurity wants to know everything about who the emerging rich are. Simply because, the rich are seen as having power, and thus more influence to persuade new outlooks and perceptions, than those without as much money. This is also a false perception. Altering perception comes from the heart. Good hearts win out over bad hearts. People with bad hearts, often feel the most delusionally entitled to know everything about anyone else. This is a sickness – that may or may not, have anything to do with this story.
Here’s Hamish Fletcher‘s thoughts on invasion into peoples biz records, involving the Government Tax outfit here in the nation known as the green paradise isles. There’s a balance between ‘transparency’ and being raped by a government’s over-eager urges to “just probe.:
“Tax firm Deloitte is reminding the public of the Inland Revenue’s “scary” search powers after a decision in the High Court. (more…)
New Zealand is developing IT, electronic chips equipment to tag medications electronically, sending a bleep back to daddy BigPharma companies, right down to each dose of medication taken by people.
Is this – a) cool. b) breaching privacy of people (again) c) an instant stock taking mechanism of multinational corporations, to do easy budgest projection figures with d) foreshadowing days where people are semi-robots, just existing to report data back to billion dollar businesses, with a myriad of embedded microchips and microchipped products? or e) an excellent idea because it is a ‘life-saving mechanism’ of change?
