Video: They shall not pass - this bill!
More than 100 demonstrators protested outside parliament yesterday against the passage of the Digital Economy Bill, adding support to more 12,000 who have writen to their MPs to voice their unhappiness'.
The controversial bill contains clauses that could lead to internet service providers blocking websites and customers for alleged illegal file-sharing.
Many of rhe protesters, led by Open Rights Group CEO Jim Killock, had taped tbeir mouths and carried blacked out posted to symbolise what they saw as the music industry's attempt to censor the internet.

Do you agree or disagree with this? Do you see this as the "western"/"business" version of internet censorship that's happening in China or is this the proper way of dealing with piracy? Is it the case of forgetting about "innocent until proven guilty" or a better preventative method?
Who knows.... We will have to wait and see
