Digital Economy Bill Passes, File-Sharing Ends Soon.

Last night the UK Government rammed through the controversial Digital Economy Bill after its third reading and just two hours debate. This means that it will later become law, everyone will stop sharing files online and the music and movie industries will net billions in the years to come. Better still, it has the full support of the people.

These politicians can shill for the corporations but their ignorance of technology will hinder their ability to be taken seriously. Darknets will be huge once they really become draconian. I also envision casual computer users becoming more savvy with pirating media if they choose too. Mesh networks can defeat copyright police when they become more commonplace and intuitive. File hosting sites still thrive and the number of offshore hosting will skyrocket within countries that have more immediate concerns than someones imaginary copyright. Their business models are crumbling among the millions of new artists that now have a voice/platform other than the closed big labels. These cartels are parasites onto musicians and I really do hope they continue throw massive amounts of money on a lost cause.
