So, you felt comfortable downloading tunes illegally at your pleasure? Well not for much longer, as the controversial Three Strikes law is fast coming upon us. Currently under heavy debate in the UK under the Government’s Digital Economy Bill, the ‘Three Strikes and you’re out’, literally means out – disconnection from the internet and in some cases, a prison sentence. Currently operating in France and new Zeland as from last year, Ireland is now the latest country to have jumped on board, as from this week. A high court in Ireland has passed a landmark judgement, upholding the right of a creator and supporting this approach against internet piracy. So what are your views? We’d love to hear them.
