Do you know this feeling?
You wake up in the morning, get your first espresso, light a cigarette, and start reading the news. Then, the first news item makes you want to go back to bed immediately. Have you been there? Great, now you know how I feel.
Why? Because of this:
BT and Talk Talk have lost an appeal over controversial measures to tackle copyright infringement online.
So, the UK joins other crazy states and adopts the three-strike-rule and other unconstitutional measures.
Dear Brits, this is how I feel:
The majority of authors here at diablog are Brits.
Thus, I demand an explanation from them, what is next?
Will cricket be dropped in favor of Baseball?
When will football be called soccer in your neck of the woods?
Will you drop the English language and speak French from now on? After all, the French were first in adopting three-strikes.
When will those guys
be tought, that one IP address does not equal one computer, much less one person?
Did you adopt the three-strike model because of your love of Spain, which was second to adopt it? If so, why didn't you move there in the first place?
I always thought Brits are smarter. Obviously, you are not.
