It’s something that a very high percentage of us do, downloading movies and TV shows through torrent websites. To try to control this, the Government are proposing new laws that will potentially have the Internet Service providers block websites such as Kick Ass Torrents, the Pirate bay etc. From examples in other countries this has proven to have little success, as the sites and proxy sites always find a way around the blocks. Critics of the new laws are claiming that it is infringing on peoples internet freedom and that it can set a dangerous precedent as it brings in censorship.
How do you feel about having your internet usage censored? Do you agree with the Governments steps to stop internet piracy? What would your solution be to this issue? There are un-copyrighted materials on torrent sites, how do you police people downloading these vs actual copyrighted materials?
