Submission + - U2 manager wants ISPs to cut off illegal downloads 1

root_42 writes: As the BBC writes, the manager of rock band U2, Paul McGuinness, has called on ISPs in France to cut off users that illegally download music.

He goes on to compare: "If you were a magazine advertising stolen cars, handling the money for stolen cars and seeing to the delivery of stolen cars, the police would soon be at your door".

"That's no different to an ISP, but they say they can't do anything about it. If you steal a laptop from a store or don't pay for your broadband service, you'll soon be cut off and nicked."

I think this comparison is more than unfair.
