European Union Wants to Ban Suspected Pirates from Internet

by Rainier on July 8, 2008 @ 5:24 a.m. PDT

A proposed bill being voted on this week by the European Union would give governments authorization to deem certain software illegal to be used on the internet. The new anti-piracy rules would put in effect a Europe-wide three strikes law, giving three warning to people suspected of sharing copyrighted files, eventually banning offenders from accessing the internet. Needless to say organizations such as Foundation for a Free Internet and various law firms are already up in arms.
