MrSteveSD writes "The BBC are reporting on government plans to force service providers to cut off users who 'illegally' download music and films. The government is proposing a '3 Strikes' rule where users will first be warned by email, then have their accounts suspended, then have their contracts terminated. This will ultimately push the cost of enforcing copyrights onto the public. Do we even have an Electronic Frontier Foundation in the UK? I'm suddenly in the mood to make a rather generous donation."
