EU Shows Its True Colours In Filesharing 'Crackdown'

Landmark crackdown on illegal file sharing has been approved by the EU

Until now, an amendment existed that prevented EU member countries from barring persistent file sharers from the Internet. Today news of the removal of that amendment has been made public and is believed to have stemmed from pressure from member countries keen to adopt tough anti-piracy laws.

“Barring from the Internet” effectively means that individual countries would be able to ask internet service providers to remove users deemed to be persistent pirates without needing a prior court order.
Summary 'justice' from the fascists at the EU, supported by the fascists of New Labour and the bastards in big business.
