The government has called for a delay in the implementation of Section 92A, the controversial Copyright Amendment Act due to come into force February 28.
The law has been the subject of an internet blackout against the measures for ISP's to cut off internet access following allegations of copyright breach.
Prime Minister John Key said today that its implementation date would be pushed back to March 27 to see if the sector can come up with a workable code of practice.
“We are hoping that by that time we will have come up with a voluntary code of practice,” said Mr Key.
If one could not be agreed then the section in question would be suspended, he said.
