NB: BT (British Telecom) owns about 90% of the fixed telephone lines in the UK and thereby is by far the most dominent provider of internet services.

Superb!  Good to hear some good news on that front.  Good luck to the BPI.

I loved the quote about not allowing 'Counterfeits R Us' on the high street.  Perfect analogy.

Wont people just find a way around this?  Those uploading the illegal content need to be stopped.  If that isn't possible, there needs to be a way to compensate people that have had their content used illegally.  One option would be to make all internet users pay a small fee and distribute that to the people that have had their content illegally used.
