BT boss urges fines for filesharing customers

irish donkey

Just like speeding camera's

Dear Sir

We have proof that you <exceeded the speed limit> infringed somebodies copyright at this time.

Please pay us £60 or face court action.

Cheques to us please.

Simple! The model is already tried and tested. It also gives the ISP's more of an incentive to pursue infringers as they will get their 'Admin' cut off the top.

This is the beginning of the end.

Northerners give up ID cards for Lent figures suggest

irish donkey

there are many positve aspects but

with many things there are negative impacts.

What those negative impacts will be we don't know fully yet but you are aware that if you fail to keep your ID Record up to date you are liable for a hefty fine.

My issues isn't with having a ID per say but the shifting of the legal obligations to keep it up to date and the large fines attached to not doing so.

But you may say there are fines for not keeping you passport up to date. Well not really I don't have a passport at the minute, as it has just expired, well two years ago. When I want a new one I will go and apply and get one no questions asked as to why I let it lapse... same with my driving license, if it expires and I don't drive a car no problem.

Let you ID Card lapse or go out of date then you are in the world of a whole lot of hurt! So enjoy your card just don't let it lapse!

I of course would never look at porn or anything associated with porn.... just like the other 20% of the people on the hinterweb that manage a whole day with out typing ' mature housewives dressed as traffic wardens'

Of course if they wanted to out somebody they could look at their London namesake that never pays any UK tax on their profits... or their Boss Dirty Desmond!

Political parties would not be able to implement such rules if the electorate took any notice.

jobs for the boys and girls

need to get these contracts signed or else when I get voted out there will be nowhere for me to get a job.

There should be a law which says in you were involved in any aspect of procurement then when you leave office you are NOT allowed to go and work for the people you procured from.

Lord Mandy please take note... Althought any company he has helped recently seems to quickly go down the tubes quickly. except Geffen of course.

Music biz unites to save 6Music

unique role that the station has in supporting new artists and in nurturing UK talent

because if you stop supportting then we will have to start supporting it the way that we have always claimed to but never really.

Does this mean that if you get fined for illegal downloading you can claim a discount as its the TV License payers that are supporting NEW MUSIC,.

thought not!

As for the BBC its the unique way its funded which allows it to be so good. Tell them to go away the BBC is supposed to be independant and I as a license payer would like it to remain that way.

Virgin to offer 100Mb/s broadband by year's end

irish donkey
Big Brother

Who needs speeds like this

Considering that Virgin are going to packet sniff (CView) all your downloads and perhaps cut you off, or report you to the RIAA/FACT Mafia or murder your children (depending on which version of the Mandybill makes it to law)

Oh dear do I hear the rumble of Linx Distro's coming..........

I think I will just stay at my 20mb connection. After all if I can't download what I want, and copyright law is so complex that even the people the write the laws can't work them out what you are and aren't allowed to download. Why bother. The kids will just have to watch old fashioned TV and I can just STEAM away.

It will be a cold day in hell before the Big 4 get anymore of my money for substandard DVD's. Its the only way to fight back. Hit them where it hurts,. In their pocket.

Cardiff tops UK plastic fraud list

irish donkey

cardholders were sometimes their own worst enemy

When I had money stolen from my Bank Card the bank tried to firmly point the finger at me.

Their finger quivered a bit when I pointed that I have never used my card or pin so the fault must lie with them. The account was just used for cheques and electronic transfers.

They immediately refunded all my money and apoligised. I wonder how difficult it would have been if it had of been one of my other cards which I do regularly use. I'm still waiting to hear the results of their investigation.

Just because its your card doesn't mean you are the one that has been careless.
