Tens of thousands of New Zealanders are believed to watch the US version of Netflix by using services that trick Netflix into thinking they are located in the US. Documents released by [Trade Minister Tim Groser] said the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPPA) would require New Zealand to provide stronger protection for technological protection measures (TPMs). TPMs are a general term used to describe “digital locks” that prevent copyright works being accessed by people who don’t have the rights holders’ consent. – Tom Pullar-Strecker, Stuff.co.nz
