Just seen this on ZDNet as an update:

UK drops plan to block file-sharing sites


Cabinet minister and business secretary for the UK government, Vince Cable, announced in a speech this morning that plans to block copyright infringing websites are to be dropped.
In the speech at the British Library in London, copyright laws are to be updated “thoroughly” to catch up with modern society, including the relaxation of ripping CD music for personal use.

Good news I say!

Does this translate to us yet (or already?)

Has the US's definitive "gray area" been defined? I read a blurb recently about further insight into the sudden removal of most

links. I don't want to change the subject, but I figure that could be a thread starter; Usually, people just get the news.

Yes the Govn has scrapped plans but the music and film companies have not. All they have to do is put stress on an ISP to block a site, and it's legal to do so.

I disagree. Stealing a movie from a movie store means there's one less copy there for someone to buy. Downloading a movie means you're copying what somebody already has, so while you now have a copy, he still has his copy. Not condoning it, but it's more akin to that than swiping a movie off a shelf.

Maybe so, but it at is at least a step in the right direction. Hopefully we will get a decent law if Cable comes good on his promise to properly review it. and hopefully, we'll get a proper debate on it this time, rather than everyone getting drunk in the Commons bar.

the powers that be can try all they want to block piracy, but people WILL always find a way. it's like security systems, they make them better and better but someone ALWAYS finds a way to beat them.

it true, and it's not surprising. the riaa did the same thing back in the late 90's and early 2000's. when music piracy was at it's all time high, so were cd sales. and the same with movies. recently the mpaa celebrated 3 consecutive years where they had their biggest sales years ever, and these just happen to also be the 3 years that movie piracy was at it's highest. coincidentally when sales took a dip so did piracy. i do not have any number for the movies, but i know for cd sales during the time piracy was at it's highest the average persons purchases of music went by 15%. there are plenty of studies that show piracy is actually good for sales.

I don't get it. Many have said they don't believe in piracy but they believe even less in methods to try in stopping it. Their are many things I want and don't have because of the price. I don't go and steal them. Years ago pirates were caught and hung. It would work today. Rope is cheep.
