Hollywood piracy screening rejected by Government

Friday 4 Jul 2014 6:21 a.m.

It has been revealed top Hollywood studios asked for access to a controversial government-run internet filter - so they could stop Kiwis accessing pirate and torrent websites.

RadioLIVE reported the Motion Pictures Distributors Association wanted access to the Internal Affairs child pornography filter, so they could block access to copyrighted material.

But they were knocked back by the Government and Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne says that it is partly because internet service providers refused.

"They were not prepared to agree to that extension and in any case it would have shifted the mandate somewhat from DIA's primary focus on preventing sexual abuse of young children."

The child pornography filter is a voluntary one.
