    Please read article below in today's UK newspaper. If this happens with downloads of films etc, in the UK , it could spread to other countries and happen with satellite tv c/s .
    Anyone disagree ?

    Users face being cut off from the internet for downloading films and music illegally
    By DUNCAN ROBERTSON -

    Last updated at 11:54am on 12th February 2008


    People who illegally download films and music will be cut off from the internet under Government plans to tackle online piracy.


    Internet service providers (ISPs), including BT and Virgin Media, will be legally required to take action against users who access illegal material.


    Under draft proposals to be unveiled next week, users suspected of wrongfully downloading films or music will be first sent a warning email to stop.


    For a second infringement, they will receive a suspension - and if caught a third time, their contract will be terminated.

    films and music are very heavy downloaders compared to c.s
    but they could do the same to cs if they so wished, its just a wake up call to tell them to be ready for the eventualities.

    Simply get an off-shore ISP, problem over. many ISP's openly display there download capacities. i.e. you can download XXXX amount of movies with this plan per month, etc.
    Also many ISP's will not except complaints from private objectors, Government agencies might be different though.
    As for card share, that's brings in a different act, counterfeiting or attempting to by-pass an encryption. it would be a simply matter to track down the server, and then reference his subscriber list to track the users. When this happens normally the server gets a heavy fine, and confiscation of computers, satellite receivers, etc, while the and user just looses all his gear.

    Beg to disagee. If something is unlawful in a country it is unlawful.
    Downloading movies illegally or cardsharing both are crimes in Australia and both breach of the rights of the owner of that intellectual property No diffence..a crime is a crime.
