UK's Net Service Providers Reject "Policing Role" Over File Sharers [news.bbc.co.uk]
Internet service providers (ISPs) have rejected calls for them to police the net and cut off users who repeatedly file-share material unlawfully.

The umbrella group that represents ISPs said disconnecting users would be a "disproportionate response".
In a statement, the Internet Service Providers Association (Ispa) said it disputed "calls from some elements of the creative industries for the disconnection of users or technological measures as a method of dealing with potential infringers of copyright online".
