You'll have noticed our logo has gone dark

It's not a mistake. It's about a mistake. New Zealand has just introduced an absurdly overwrought piece of legislation which establish "guilt upon accusation" for those accused of copyright theft - and enshrines in law the priciple that copyright "thieves" can be thrown off the internet by their ISPs.

It's a rotten piece of law, and in protest, you're being invited to join an internet black-out between now and the 23rd; if you have an internet presence, you might want to get involved, too.
