Labour Leader David Cunliffe said his party continued to strongly oppose the legislation as it did not provide protection for the privacy of communications from spying by the state.


In a additional purchase document to the Telecoms Invoice, Amy Adams is suggesting to dispose clause 39 which allows the Govt to prevent an overseas-based organization from providing solutions in New Zealand if they do not comply to the suggested law, but may experience pecuniary charges.

Recently Facebook or myspace, Microsof company, Google and Yahoo had written to communication Ministry Amy Adams to highlight their issues about the Telecoms Interception Ability and Security bill, motivated New Zealand to consider an alternative strategy to the new law, by interesting US alternatives for details and by creating single point of contact for details demands of international organizations.

They said that making their systems interception capability for New Zealand spy organizations would present serious legal disputes for headquartered located in other nations.
