The illegal file sharers

France looks like the first country to take final action on the illegal file sharers.

It looks like they are taking plans to cut off illegal internet file sharers after sending warning emails and letters. The law is now in place for final approval. 

The plan means that there will be “community watchdogs” who will monitor users for illegal usage.

The idea is that these “watchdogs” will send two warnings out to the user to warn them that they will loose their connection if the continue. If they fail to react to the warnings, their connection is terminated altogether.

In my opinion, I don’t think it’s fair to have someone watching your internet access.

What do you think?
