Subject: [ PFIR ] UK bill introduces 10 year prison sentence for online pirates
The UK Government's Digital Economy Bill, which is set to
revamp current copyright legislation, has been introduced in
Parliament. One of the most controversial changes is the
increased maximum sentences for online copyright infringement.
Despite public protest, the bill increased the maximum prison
term five-fold, from two to ten years.
