Crackdown In UK

Over this past weekend, various news outlets have been reporting that the United Kingdom's Secretary of Business, Peter Mandelson, is in negotiations for a "major crackdown" on file sharing. The Secretary for Business, Innovation, and Skills, was considered a close friend by Prime Minister Gordon Brown, appointed to this position in the "reshuffling" process be P.M. Brown, during a struggling time, to "lead a new example" said Mr. Madelson.

Mr. Peter Mandelson

Though controversy is not far from home for Mr. Mandelson, as in recent years political turmoil has pursued him. As he was originally forced out of Government during controversial circumstances in 1998 and 2001. He then left post as the European Trade Commissioner in Brussels to take seat in London with Brown's cabinet, to assume the post of Business Secretary.

In his first time role as Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, within five months, he was taken down by a revelation that he purchased an exquisite home in Notting Hill, with an illegally funded interest-free £373,000 loan from his millionaire colleaugue in government, Geoffrey Robinson, fallen former Paymaster General. He admitted being "technically" wrong in not telling his building society about the loan but, even though he resigned, insisted he had done nothing improper.

During Mr. Mandelson's second Cabinet appearance, he assumed the role of Northern Ireland Secretary. Shortly over a year at the position, another scandal had been boiling from his past. This time, accusations went public that during a previous government position, he had accepted a £1 million donation to help fund the Millenium Dome's Faith Zone, a project which in that time he was leading in a minesterial role. Despite first denying the deal ever took place, that it was his Private Secretary who managed it, Home Office records eventually proved that Mr. Mandelson had personally telephoned others asking for the passport to be reconsidered. Yet again this corrupt politician was forced to resign. Cash for favors seems to be a favorite of this man, and the way he runs his office, and handles decisions. How he ever returned to the political process astounds me after two scandals such as these, but the voters allowed it to happen. Until recently, the scandals have all been typical politicians and their methods, but now, this same politician, is stepping into the file sharing realm.

Last year it had been recommended by Digital Britain that a "year-long trial period" where ISPs send letters to suspected file sharers, and at the end of that year, if fewer than 70 percent of the recipients stopped sharing copyrighted marerial, they suggested that ISPs would then have the right to restrict bandwidth or block certain protocols totally. Now they plan to shorten the year long period. "The measures in the Digital Britain report may evolve slightly," a spokesperson for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) told ZDNet UK on Monday. "What we've heard from people [during the initial stages of the consultation period] was a lot of criticism that those tech measures wouldn't be introduced for a number of years, until 2012."

Island In Corfu
The interesting part of this report, is that last week, David Geffen, Ranked 45th of the richest Americans in the United States, Founder of Geffen Records, and co-founder of DreamWorks entertainment, had met in a private island getaway, in Corfu. Strangely enough, Ministerial reciepts show that the trip was not a part of their budget propositions, so assuming this was a "private" retreat, Mr. Mandelson must have been a guest, at the expense of Mr. Geffen. Some would suggest this sounds oh so familiar when referring to the past records of Mr. Mandelson, although there is no evidence to suggest any wrong doing.

The wrongdoing here is, that this is further proof that politicians and lawmakers, are accepting "retreats, vacations, and similar gifts" as a return for encouraging the laws to lead in a manner that will benefit those whom are their "friends" or "acquaintances". This new war on file sharing by the UK Cabinet of Prime Minister Brown, needs to be exposed, for what it is, and what it means for those whom believe the internet should be free. Such acts such as these can only lead to the decline in technological advancement from European Nations.
For a nation that many look up to and has such power in the world, leading a positive example for the future of file sharing and making long, studied decisions is completely necessary to the future of p2p. Mr. Mandelson should be laid out on a platter for everyone to see all the "behind the scenes" deals in this scenario. In the past at election victories he was quoted as saying, "I am a fighter, not a quitter" and referred to his "inner steel". Many at the time had said that was the "last throes of a politician on the way to oblivion..." and that "He's truly lost it.". Bookmakers William Hill, have been offering odds of 10/1 on him resigning before the next election. We could only be so lucky.

No avatarYes not just "file encryption" but "encrypting" the entire internet is the future weapon of mass destruction that peers have yet to unleash in this war on p2p. I do believe this is a method that the former leaders of TPB will be pursuing and unveiling in the future. Expect to see them in headlines again people! It's in their plan, I assure you :D

No avatarMy ISP already disconnects me if I have alegedly downloaded copyright material. In theory, they are supposed to email me to remove it and the third violation they disconnect, but in reality they just disconnect so i don't know which downloads they are referring to and cannot advise others of that fact that some downloads are being tracked. Any suggestions?

posted by Blocked (2009-09-16 12:48:02)
No avatar@ gayman, lol... well here is what you do: GET PROTECTION!!! LOL> ipfilter.dat, peerguardian, VPN, something. You can fight that notice about your "alleged" downloading of copyrighted materials. Where is the beef? If they have no proof, then they cannot pursue you (legally)
