Illegal Downloaders In UK Face Internet Disconnect

Illegal downloaders 'face UK ban'

People in the UK who go online and illegally download music and films may have their internet access cut under plans the government is considering.

Six million people a year are estimated to download files illegally in the UK.

However, the Internet Service Providers Association said data protection laws would prevent providers from looking at the content of information sent over their networks.

Send us your comments"ISPs are no more able to inspect and filter every single packet passing across their network than the Post Office is able to open every envelope," the association said.

I do not support these moves at all and will support the ISPA's view.

And slightly big brother-ish as well; as it means someone will be monitoring your internet connection.
