Submission + - UK to 'get tough on file sharers' (bbc.co.uk)

boethius78 writes: The BBC has another story relating to Peter Mandelson's plans to 'get tough on file sharers'. This time, he's trying seduce us with the suggestion that the "pay-off for tough penalties against persistent file-sharers would be a more relaxed copyright regime", which means that "someone who has bought a CD would be able to copy it to their iPod ... without acting unlawfully". Sweet!
