UK: Persistent Net File Sharers Will Be Disconnected [news.bbc.co.uk]
The UK government has been laying out some of the ways it intends to pursue persistent net pirates.

It comes as Lord Mandelson confirmed that he would introduce tough measures against illegal file-sharers.

Initially pirates could have download caps imposed or have their bandwidth restricted.

If that did not prove effective in reducing illegal file-sharing, the government will consider disconnecting them from the network.

Yaaawwwwnnnn...yet another bark with no bite. More political posturing in order to scare the average downloader.

I know of more than a few Londoners who bulk download--well, you name it--on a very regular basis...they're still around.

Yeah, the "threat" of disconnection is good enough to stop many, however, it won't stop the persistent file sharers, which is what it's aimed at.
