Respect for Film Demands Illegal UK ISP File Sharing Legislation
By: MarkJ - 12 March, 2009 (9:12 AM)

The Respect for Film campaign group has published the results of its latest Oxford Economics piracy survey, which revealed that illegal film downloads and sales were costing the UK economy $846m (614m) a year in lost revenue.

The group claimed that such losses could be cut to 268m by cracking down on car boot sales, banning cameras in cinemas (isn't this already done?) and introducing tougher legislation to help quell illegal broadband ISP file sharing (P2P).

The government's Digital Britain report has already revealed plans to legislate for the introduction of a system that would issue warnings to those identified as being involved in such activity. Meanwhile the debate continues about how to tackle repeat offenders.
