Even if you’re fucking guilty, cutting ypu off is insane. Illegal downloading is, at best, shoplifting. Do we chop off someone’s hand or lock them away for lifting a CD? no. $14 million a year? Even if that weren’t an inflated, out-of-the-ass number, that’s an acceptable loss, given their profits, and especially if the only "solution’ they can dream up is this draconian bullshit.

I wonder if people now so would try to file such copyright claims against Eirecom offices.

Would they? The Irish I know have a sense of humour quite like no-one else…
