Illegal downloads and ISPs

by on Mar.11, 2008, under General

Just been pondering the internet and downloads etc and this news item sprung to mind www.theregister.co.uk/2008/02/22/burnham_dcms_filesharing/ in which the government are threatening to put legislation so that ISPs stop their customers taking part in illegal downloads. This is like asking the police to stop every drink driver by stopping every vehicle on a busy motorway and breath testing every driver and all the passengers just to be sure.

The ISPs cant even do a decent job of stopping SPAM either from or to their networks, what chance to they stand of stopping peer2peer activities.
