Minister ups pressure on file-sharing

Posted by malcolm on Monday, January 14th, 2008 at 17:34

Lord Triesman, Minister for the Intellectual Property lobby, has stepped up the pressure on ISPs to disconnect Internet users accused of file sharing. The Minister wants the industry to agree to MPAA demands that Internet users be cut off if the MPAA believes they have been sharing copyright material online.

Warning that he’d been paying close attention to the French decision to blacklist Internet users, Lord Triesman said he’d advocate using the “first available opportunity” to legislate if the industry does not agree to the MPAA enforcement strategy. That would probably mean Autumn 2008.
