UK Government piles file-sharing pressure on UK ISPs

The government turned up the heat on ISPs today, warning that laws to force disconnection of illegal filesharers are already being drafted for a parliamentary debut in November.Lord Triesman, the minister for intellectual property, said that if ISPs can’t agree a voluntary scheme with the music and film industries by the end of summer, he will press Gordon Brown to introduce legislation in the next Queen’s speech.It’s the first time Triesman has put a public timescale on the threat he made last autumn to bypass self-regulation.
