Torrent Nazi Says: No Internet For You!

Proposed legislation in Great Britain would compel Internet Service Providers to cut off Internet access to downloaders who access copyrighted material. 


Users suspected of wrongly downloading films or music will receive a warning e-mail for the first offence, a suspension for the second infringement and the termination of their internet contract if caught a third time, under the most likely option to emerge from discussions about the new law.

Broadband companies who fail to enforce the “three-strikes” regime would be prosecuted and suspected customers’ details could be made available to the courts. The Government has yet to decide if information on offenders should be shared between ISPs.


But never fear. It's being done for the children. The bill also includes: "...a pledge that children will be entitled to five hours of culture a week overseen by a new youth culture trust. The pledge will give children the right to learn a musical instrument, visit art galleries and museums and even make films."
There is no word on whether each child will also be given a pony.

What the heck does culture have to do with that?? And why would they need to pass a bill to entitle children to "culture?"
