I have no respect for the Politian’s involved. All those in favour need to put up their hands so we can get a good look at you.
From any moral position the condition; "Suspected" of needs to change to “Proven” of otherwise it is bullying.
Any allegation needs to be made in the public domain so we can see who is accusing who for what and any false allegations leading to notices that prove false needs to provide suitable compensation. Otherwise this is simply a Trojan horse to sneak legislation that undermines freedom of speech and is an invasion of privacy.
If government does not do the right thing then I agree in organised citizens taking their own action against such bullies. Invasion of citizen privacy goes both ways. We all know friends in the right places to leak private details on EVERYONE.
You've been warned.
I still don't get how they track what your are downloading. But if it is that easy for them then i would just stop in fear of losing my internet for half a year and a fine... lol
one way they can track you is by simply riding along on the illegal DL and sharing the illegal DL with you! in the US they already are in a position to demand from your IP your address and warn you of illegal activity .think we had some posting of that previously around here and not to sure off the top where it is in HH forums
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
>> "outlaws file-sharing and threatens repeat offenders with having their Internet access cut off."
I would hope it's a little more specific than that. By that wording, running your own webserver or FTP gets you kicked off the net. So... basically, every website.
But, who knows. Want to see how stupid these specific politicians are? http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20110413/18085213885/new-zealand-politican-tweets-how-shes-violating-copyright-law-night-before-supporting-three-strikes-copyright-law.shtml
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
So I cant send pictures in an email any more?

its does say Illegal file sharing in the article so yes you can share pictures and yes you can run a webserver or FTP server but what it seems like it allows them to do is look at everything without cause.
get ready for a new protocol! how long till they have a work around?
