Submission + - Layeredtech Disconnect -a lot- of servers

defsdoor writes: "Layeredtech have sent out a single email to it's customers saying that they must raise a support ticket to relocate their hosted servers by 30th September or their server will be disconnected.

They should have at least issue reminders and warnings — especially as the relocation involved new IP addresses for all servers so would not be a trivial task."

Block 5269 to your jabber server and make sure your users do not have direct internet access and they can't use the server or the clients to talk to anyone outside your server then.

How will the money raised by this tax get distributed to the artists ?

Of course the answer is it won't. It will shore up the record companies, who will still bleat about people stealing music and use that as the excuse for the artists to get even further shafted.

Welcome to 21st Century Government - where the government's only purpose is to take your money from you and give it to whoever currently has their ear (and wallet).
