Screeb:Morph:LennonNZ: But the difference between a Car and an Internet connection is with a Car if someone breaks the law (speeds or drives the car without a WOF/Registration) the person driving the car gets charged not the owner.
With the internet if someone else is driving (using) your internet for downloading copyrighted materials the owner of the Internet is libel not the actual person downloading copyrighted material.
But if the driver does a burnout or something along the lines of that the car WILL be impounded.
Will your car get impounded if you use it to transport/distribute illegally copied material? Didn't think so.
Exactly, no matter your stance on copyright law this is stupid legislation from an implementation point of view.
