Default Screw you, Internet? Digital Economy bill passes in the UK

From http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/n...-in-the-uk.ars

Quote:
The UK's Labour government, partnering with the Conservatives, yesterday pushed through the controversial Digital Economy bill over opposition from Liberal Democrats and some in its own party. The bill allows the UK courts to order complete blocks on websites, it requires ISPs to start sending P2P warning letters from copyright holders, and it opens the door to throttling and Internet disconnection for repeat infringement.

Unhappy Sad news that people who don't know don't even care they don't know.

Well, if you've read some of my vituperative posts all along, you'd know something like this was gonna happen. But, people call me crazy and give me a bad rep.

FREEDOM is going the way of the buffalo.
