'EducatIon on piracy' emails on its way

BBC news....UK ISP's have agreed with the government to start sending educational letters to customers identified as downloading copyright material without paying for it.

This is an attempt to crack down on piracy.

BT, virgin, talktalk and sky have agreed to send out emails.

This has been years in the planning, but experts say its too late to be an effective deterrent.

I'll probably get about 50... phishing e-mails disguised as piracy education e-mails.

Lol, I don't use a VPN.

I'm also not with any of those ISPs.

Got a feeling emails will only be sent to excessive users, otherwise the whole country will be getting them.

Reminds me of the zero tolerence law on drink driving in the Netherlands where half the driving population are lined up for a week in jail as punishment. Some have to wait years for their week in jail, hehe.
