EntaNet would like piracy rethink

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The current methods being used to identify illegal broadband file sharers are unfair and inadequate according to the internet service provider EntaNet UK.

Recent government plans have set the ball rolling once on how those involved in illegal file sharing should be treated, and initially the Digital Britain report suggested a softer approach.

However, it seems that for one reason or another, this would not do and measures that are more draconian are needed.

The problem for the average broadband user is that the IP address used to indetify illegal file sharers can easily be redirected, hijacked, spoofed and, where there is an open wireless connection, just simply used by other broadband users.

According to EntaNet the solution should be easy enough, as introducing extended licensing would open up the market to all and can be done at a reasonable price too.
