Wowsers writes: An article in The Times newspaper discusses UK government attempts to regulate the internet. Internet providers are to cut off people that are trading in "copy written" material, the fact that everything is copy written escapes the politicians. Obviously the Internet providers that are expected to police this are jumping at the chance to spending vast amounts of money and time, and also for a dwindling user base if they are supposed to cut off subscribers as proposed. Such law is what you get from politicians who's only qualifications are in art, history, politics, English, Latin, law.
