UK "Three Strikes": Please Write to Your MP

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday I wrote a quick analysis of the insane U-turn effected by the UK 
| government over "three strikes and you're out". Below I've posted the

Fon and Games with "Three Strikes"

| Suppose, now, that people use some of those million hotspots to download 
| copyright material: how easy is it going to be (a) establishing exactly who 
| downloaded it and (b) cutting off that person?  
| Gives a new meaning to the term "hotspot"...

| Online campaigners 38 Degrees have launched an attack on Mandelsonâs plans to

| campaigners from a range of NGOs are getting in touch with us about this:

Mandelson goes to war on teenagers downloading their music and movies... just
days after dining with anti-piracy billionaire

,----[ Quote ]
| Lord Mandelson launched a crackdown on internet piracy just days after
| meeting a leading Hollywood critic of illegal file sharing.

| people - one in 12 of the population - who illicitly download music and films
| over the internet.


âTaking something for nothing is wrongâ â No, not expenses, data.

| In the meantime I am going to increase my sharing of Linux distros and hope
| that someone tries to accuse me of sharing files illegallyâ..lets see how
| much of my unlimited monthly broadband I can use. ÂMaybe time is up for the
| proprietary model? ÂMaybe you should now be looking towards FOSS and the GPL?
| You certainly donât have to worry about sharing issues then.
