Subscribers of O2 and Be Broadband, alleged of unauthorized downloading copyrighted content, have already received notifications from their Internet service providers.
Local media reported that O2 and Be Broadband have begun sending out notification letters to their customers alleged of being involved in downloading copyrighted material. The notifications have been issued to almost 2,800 subscribers.
Everything started with an intention of Golden Eye International to prevent Internet users from sharing content across the web to which it owns the copyright. The number of the originally targeted customers was close to 9,000, and the company believed that this number would translate in satisfying damage compensation fees. However, its plan was moderated by the High Court.
The entire system of demanding Internet service providers to notify subscribers alleged of downloading copyrighted content was enforced by the very controversial Digital Economy Act. The latter came into force two years ago as a means of cracking down on unauthorized file-sharing, but thus far there are still some provisions in it that are awaiting approval.

|they obviously don't know the difference between stealing and sharing. If I lend my mate a copyright DVD is he stealing too because he hasn't paid to watch it|

|They have good face. It is spite. Yes spite.|
Girls favor safe living. Whores love Priests.
Admitting welcome to many men and willingly free.
You will never find the girl being so conceeded.
Nothing like a copyright ?
A blessing belongs the same.
Hate is found - delieved with a smile.
Not sharing Father ? I know you do.
Spite rather have you advance admitting rejection.
In any demise the the blessing stays the same,
but it is horriable sex for the girl.
Capital Punishment channel for you tempted
to sway and no we don't have one.
Suffice with medical clips all torn to porn.
I swear you can count the three injections in some hardcore sex romps.

|I think o2david had a few too many tokes of weed (or was on a bad LSD trip) when he wrote that! (or maybe he's on a Valium & Vodka diet.)|
Can ANYBODY understand that drivel?? In 'The Fifth Element' Bruce Willis says 'Look, I only understand 2 languages, English and Bad English' ... that comment is NEITHER.

|LOL even the UK the copyright law enforcement is similar to the US. and what people don't realize is that the distributors have no control over ANY copyright claims. ONLY the original creator can scream copyright infringement according to UK copyright law (US law is that same).|
but according to what Ive read as regards to UK online privacy law they CAN monitor ANY and ALL internet activity as regards to intellectual property rights.
(in the US they are NOT soposta be doing this how ever). but what it all boils down to is if you want web privacy you better get a VPN or something to that nature.
*BTW i just looked this up*

|More to the point popUP is the issues regarding O2 and the ability to run VPN on their service/hardware/firmware. Plenty of stuff if you google it.||
