ISPs and P2P

The news is full of ISPs being asked/required to play a larger role in P2P – Japan's ISPs adopt a three strikes and you're out approach to subscribers engaged in file sharing, Sweden rejects that approach in favour of one that requires ISPs to disclose subscriber information to rights holders, Italy blocks spying on P2P file sharers, and music labels sue a major Irish ISP.

    Of course, the idea that suing an ISP because their network is used to download copyrighted work is like suing GM or Ford because their cars are used as the “get-away” vehicles in bank robberies.
