      It means, If you download any Movie,Music or Game for free that isn't out yet will result in you getting a internet disconnection or bill through the door saying you must pay a fine for downloading copyright material from a P2P website such as ThePiratebay or Mininova etc.

      WELL!! they should NOT make you pay five times for one tv series. eg 5 discs for one season of a tv show.

      take stargate universe for instance is 43 pre order for the complete season. THATS 21.50 for the first ten episodes alone.
      and stargate atlantis was 15 per disc for the complete season and you needed to by five discs for a whopping 75

      MAKE DVD'S CHEAPER!!!

      It amazes me the power the film companies/execs have.

      would this force isp's to give static rather than dynamic ip addresses?
