21 Month Sentence To New Zealand Businessman For Video Sharing In New Zealand, No Copyrights Charges Involved

Philip Arps, the 44 year old owner of a local construction business, has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for sharing the video of a New Zealand Eco-terrorist attack conducted by Brenton Tarrant (archived). The prosecution pushed for prison over home detention over alleged "extreme views" held by Arps in a blantant act of punishment for the man's sincerely held beliefs.

Twelve other people have been arrested and await processing for having shared the same video online.
