3 Strikes Rule and Dear Lord M

Posted in copyright, Piracy by coda on September 29, 2009

Most of you were not keen that the Government/ISP should be able to disconnect users who have been found to have engaged in illegal file sharing on more than 2 occasions.
Dear Lord Mandelson,

Please don’t rush through rules that will allow the government to cut off our internet connection.

The government stated in June this was an ineffective way to tackle filesharing, it’s a worrying threat to our freedom of expression and it breaches our fundamental human rights.

Well – what do you make of this:
“Intellectual Property Rights: Commission comes forward with practical, non-legislative measures to combat counterfeiting and piracy”

You can read the full press release here.
Why are some people not entirely pleased?
More on the IFPI here.

Did I say that I would send you a link about petitioning Lord M? Here is the link.
