It seems that Lord Mandelson, is now looking to make the internet part of his domain.
In the Digital Report written by Lord Carter, it was suggested that a softer approach should be taken in order to address the illegal file sharing situation.
However, Lord Mandelson appears to have a different idea on this and is looking to get tough on illegal file sharers.
According to the Daily Mail, the plans could be very draconian indeed, in fact it is suggested that those suspected of illegal file sharing will have their broadband cut off.
There could even be fines of up to £50,000 and parents should not think that they can get away with it either, as they too could face serious punishment as a result of their children’s online activities.
