Filesharers could face court before disconnection

October 23, 2009

Those broadband users that are found to be continually sharing illegal files with other broadband users could find that they will end up in court.

According to the UK’s Culture Secretary, Ben Bradshaw, illegal filesharers will have to face court action before their internet service is taken away under the provisions demanded by the organisations looking after the interests of the copyright holders.

In one respect, this does give the accused a chance to defend themselves, but not everyone will have the spirit or the finances to mount a defence.

Therefore, it seems that on the face of it going to court just simply delays the inevitable disconnection.

It was recently suggested by TalkTalk, that there could be around seven million broadband users with a wireless network that is susceptible to hacking.
