If You Value Liberty – Kill the Bill!!!

January 6, 2010

The proposed Digital Economy Bill is a piece of legislation designed to protect and further enrich multinational companies at the expense of everyone else. It would force internet service providers (ISPs) to send warning letters to anyone caught swapping copyright material illegally, and to suspend or slow the connections of those who refused to stop. ISPs say that such interference with their customers’ connections would add £25 a year to a broadband subscription.

This is a form of collective punishment which ultimately – and typically – will disproportionately effect the poor, but then when have the likes of Peter Mandelson and his liberty hating – bank loving – government ever given a shit about the poor?
