The Almighty Buck

shadrach_au (15798) writes "The Australian music industry has approached Internet service providers (ISP) to penalize people who illegally download music. Under the plan, record labels would identify Internet customers who are illegally downloading and service providers would give them three warnings before cutting off their phone and Internet connections. Recent research shows that 18 per cent of Australians regularly use filesharing programs like Limewire to illegally download songs from the Internet."
