UK to deny Net access to illegal downloaders

piracy.gifIllegal downloading may soon be over in the UK. Or not. According NME, the UK government plans to ban all users from the Internet if they are proven guilty of keeping pirated audio or video files in their computer.

In this proposed legislation, UK online users will have 3 chances before terminating their online access. The first 2 serve as warnings wherein users will be notified through email about the offense and will their accounts will be suspended immediately. Strike 3 means termination. If that is not enough to scare you, illegal downloaders may also face prosecution.

Of course, this is not a welcome change for many users depending on this method to grab the latest music and videos without paying a fee. Moreover, expect the leading privacy groups to actively protest about this initiative.
