    • The UK Film Council, a government-backed lead agency for film, has called for persistent illegal broadband file sharers (P2P) to be forcibly removed (cut-off) from their ISPs. The group claims that over 50% of UK Internet traffic comes from illegal content, though it’s not known how they arrived at that figure.

      Last year saw six of the UK’s largest ISPs agree to a new ‘Memorandum of Understanding‘ (MoU) with the creative industry (news), which set out a principal of sending warning letters to those accused of downloading illegal music or movies etc. It was hoped that this would be followed by a voluntary solution for tackling repeat offenders, although to date no such agreement has surfaced.
