UK Threatens to turn off Web Access

Russell Shaw discusses the talks in the UK which center around three strikes and your out legislation which will turn off broadband connectivity to those people who are repeated infringing downloaders.

What upsets Shaw most — and I rarely see him this upset — is the government’s stipulation that ISPs can be prosecuted if they don’t turn off service to their customers who infringe.

I see Russell’s point but at the same time, someone has to enforce the rights of copyright holders and if it is not the government, who will it be.

What are your thoughts?
