Oxygen, water and wwwTuesday, February 12, 2008 at 5:06 | Posted in great britain, internet | Leave a comment
The British government are preparing a legislation which would compel ISP’s to cut web access for those caught for downloading pirated material (Guardian):
Internet users who illegally download music and films could lose their access to the web under legislation aimed at cracking down on those who flout piracy laws. Powers being drafted by the government will compel internet service providers to take action against customers who access pirated material.
I suppose the British government’s next legislative effort would be closing access to water for those caught for distilling moonshine booze. Perhaps smokers should be alerted as well: the government might get the idea of denying them oxygen.
