UK Government Pushes 10 Years Jail For Online Pirates

Since the UK government doesn't feel that the current maximum sentence of two years for online piracy is enough of a deterrent, they have decided to ask Parliament for a ten year maximum sentence instead. Does anyone know what the maximum sentence for armed robbery is over there? I'm just trying to figure out which line of crime a guy should get into. big grin

The UK government has published its conclusions following a consultation into punishments for online copyright infringement offenses. At the earliest opportunity Parliament will be asked to increase custodial sentences up to a maximum of 10 years while ensuring that unwitting pirates are protected.
