Is 10 Years in Jail the Answer to Online Pirates?

Holy cow! A decade in the big house for piracy? I'd hate to see what you get for stuff like robbery and assault in the UK. eek!

Physical counterfeiters can receive up to 10 years in jail under UK copyright law but should online pirates receive the same maximum punishment? A new report commissioned by the government reveals that many major rightsholders believe they should, but will that have the desired effect?
