Rome Burns, And What Are The Other Ministers Worried About?

Minister warns illegal filesharers they face 'technical measures'

Today Burnham said any solution was likely to involve a requirement that internet service providers (ISPs) notify users caught stealing digital content.

Speaking at a Music Week conference about monetising digital music, Burnham said that while a great deal could be done with voluntary measures, the government was willing to back these up with force. He said: "There will be many who don't think a simple notification would be effective and we will reserve the powers to apply technical measures for persistent offenders. Applying these measures will be a serious business, and not one we take lightly, but it is right that they are in place."

Sounds like a good way to get more tax to me. :lol:

Since this is an offtopic geek thread, does anyone have any recommendations on any books/links detailing implementation of vector search systems for n-space proximity matching which aren't going to drive me too insane with the maths?

The government are fighting a losing battle with internet regulation. It is p1ss easy to encrypt your data and avoid any prying eyes looking at your traffic.

These actions by the government will simply force more people to learn how to protect their privacy online, which is no bad thing.

First we had napster, they shut it down, and P2P became decentralised.

Then we had Kaaza, they filled it with misnamed files, and P2P became more accurate.

Now we have bittorrent for fast whole discography or series downloads... If they try and shut that down P2P will only come back with something even greater.

Yes. Don't consume anything other than independent entertainment. For example, there is sufficient quality music on archive.org to last many lifetime's worth of listening. Or plenty of high quality independent movies here ... http://www.indiemoviesonline.com.

If you must consume non-independent entertainment, then seek the advertising funded channels and skip, block or ignore the adverts, at least until they prevent you from doing so ... by then hopefully you'll be sick of the crud the non-independents spit out anyway.

There's always a way around these things.
