They'll not be in power long enough for this to pass into law. In the meantime, Mandy'll have the run of David Geffen's Corsican villa.

I'm frankly astonished at this threads title and premise.
I guess i'm an outdated OLD fuck who hasn't got with the program.
It's the HIP thing now to own Terabytes of STOLEN music now, isn't it?

It's more about civil liberties in my book Dodge. I don't d/load music illegally on the whole, I'm a musician (of sorts) myself after all.

It is more that they are threatening to introduce legislation that will enable them to cut people off from the internet if they think they have been involved in illegal d/loading - they won't need evidence, a trial or anything.

I do many legal d/loads - of music from the musicians round here for example. What if they were to interpret my d/load activity as piracy? Me and my family would be cut off without any recourse to law.

An honest man has nothing to fear.
Again, read this threads title.

I take your point about the thread title.

However, I'd dispute your statement that "an honest man has nothing to fear". That might be the case if this legislation was within our current legal framework, but it appears to be riding roughshod over such principles as "innocent until proven guilty". They are going to allow industry insiders to determine who is or isn't "guilty", with no trial or evidence required. Thus honest punters could be targeted and have no come back.

Yeah, I do it 'cos I'm hip.

I can safely say I've never downloaded anything that Geffen owns.

Is that really the best use of his time, resources and authority? Bloody hell.

Feathering his own nest is the only use of his time and resources surely?
