The (not so) disappearing submission

I wrote the other day about the New Zealand Law Society's submission on the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill.  In that submission, NZLS, argues for repeat copyright infringers to be liable to be kicked off the internet completely for 6 months, which I think is draconian and disproportionate.

Strangely, as my colleague Guy Burgess points out in the comments to my original post, NZLS then removed its submission from its site (but all its other submissions are still there).

No matter - the submission (PDF) is available on the official Parliament site along with all the others made on this Bill and any others (what an excellent service by the way - I've seen various Ministries make submissions available on an ad hoc basis before, but this is the first time I've used this centralised collection).
