Music Industry Wants Cash Instead of ISP Disconnections

You know how the music industry says stopping piracy "isn't about the money?" Yeah, about that.... frown

For years entertainment companies have put huge efforts into campaigns to inflict so-called "three strikes" campaigns on errant Internet users who download music and movies for free. The ultimate sanction of disconnection has always been touted as necessary in order for people to take things seriously but over in France, a country that pioneered graduated response, it seems that the music biz now wants to ditch disconnections in favor of fines.
