It's all the ISPs fault!

Of interest to those of you following the internet download cases i.e. those involving Atari, Davenport Lyons and a load of unfortunate members of the public will be this revelation in the Guardian (for the latest on the Davenport cases check out this article).

For those of you too lazy to read it (and in all fairness why would you be here if you merely wanted to read the Guardian) the article reveals the Government's plan to make ISPs liable for music and films illegally downloaded by their customers. In 'payment' for this the ISPs will be afforded a small payment for each track or film that their customers download legally, it doesn't take a genius to work out that this would equate to a very considerable amount of money.

The Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform has been considering vaious proposals to solve the file-sharing 'crisis' and is due to publish it's report in the new year.
