UK Internet Law governed by media industry

Basically it’s all about the movie and music industry being able to kick you off the net and subject you to huge fines without any proof – just an accusation of filesharing is enough.  It’s also about giving the business secretary the power to make up penalties and enforcements at whim.

It’s not about stimulating creativity, new business, ensuring that everyone has broadband, etc.

Looks like labour has it’s pockets filled with copyright holders hands!

Britain’s new Internet law — as bad as everyone’s been saying, and worse. Much, much worse. – Boing Boing.
