Submission + - Al-Qaeda file name == terrorism charge in the UK

An anonymous reader writes: Apparently in the UK people are charged under Terrorism Act for "a disc containing a clip entitled Al-Qaeda", "CD entitled The Manhattan Raid", "possessed several computer files with titles such as Attack Against American Troops, Sound of Jihad, and Hamas Bomb" .... It seems possesing files with certain filenames grants at least a terrorism charge in the UK.
