UK Three Strikes Plan To Exempt Small ISPs

PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Wednesday May 19, 2010
UK reports indicate that the rules for the UK's three strikes system will exempt all ISPs with under 400,000 subscribers.  While the move is described as creating "piracy havens" it is consistent with the regulatory assessment that identified the competitive impact on small ISPs of such a system and raised the possibility of exemption.  I discussed the issue in a column earlier this year on the significant cost of three strikes.

The fate of the 3 strikes plan is uncertain right now. It may end up being scrapped:
