Internet cut-off threat for Britain’s illegal downloaders

People who persist in swapping copyrighted films and music will have their internet connections cut off under tough new laws to be proposed by the government today.The measures also include taking the power to target illegal downloaders away from regulator Ofcom and giving it to ministers to speed up the process.The decision to cut off peer-to-peer filesharers is unexpected since it was ruled out by the government’s own Digital Britain report in June as going too far.
