"Three Strikes" To Go Ahead In Britain 294

David Gerard writes "Lord Peter Mandelson has carefully ignored the Gowers Report and the Carter Report, instead taking the advice of his good friend David Geffen and announcing that 'three strikes and you're out' will become law in Britain. The Open Rights Group has, of course, hit the roof. Oh, and never mind MI5 and the police pointing out that widespread encryption will become normal, hampering their efforts to keep up with little things like impending terrorist atrocities. Still, worth it to stop a few Lily Allen tracks being shared, right?"

The Cult of Scientology doesn't go to court to win cases, it goes to court to spend money, more money and yet more money (plus, taxpayers money) until its opponents run out of money and give up. This always works because L Ron Hubbard said it would always work, even when it doesn't work. In short, don't expect logic from fanatics.
