I know there has been some information on this in ATS over the last few weeks.

I can't imagine the amount of bandwidth and computing power this would use, much less the extreme invasion of privacy.

We have the right to be secure in our personal data, and the government has no right to interfere with what we have on our computers.

A friend of mine works for Sky and she told me that sky are reporting their customers for file sharing, however instaed of warning them directly, they pass over their details to a law agency who contact the customer to warn them that action will be taken. All this means is that a) file sharing will become forum based with people sharing rapidshare links or b) the new file sharing software will find a way round their monitoring protocols, either way, it is just not practical to monitor and police this, the internet will always triumph-)
