Three strikes and you are out

The French Government have presented a law which will suspend subscribers who illegally download copyright material via P2P. These systems of file sharing not only use up bandwidth but deprive the rightful owners of the material from royalties.

Abusers will get two warnings followed by disconnection for a period of between 3 months and a a year.

Downloading legally acquired music and video will, of course,  not be affected. 

It is only a matter of time before other countries adopt similar measures and end this form of abuse.
