RIANZ wants to filter your Internet

Yes, that is the case: the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand wants ISPs to install a filter.

paragraph 56

That's from the RIANZ submissions to the MED [WARNING: SCANNED PDF] on the fee for processing copyright infringement notices and it reads:

56. Communication with account holders receiving notices has shown a clear and urgent need for IPAPs to provide a voluntary "opt-in" filter system for routers for customers wishing to have a greater degree of control over the usage of their internet connection. This opt-in system could potentially block access to P2P services.

Right. That sounds entirely safe.
