New laws to combat web piracy

The Government today announced proposals for new laws to combat web piracy. Lord Carter, the government's Communciations Minister, has announced that ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will be forced to crack down on web piracy by reporting pirates and informing pirates that what they are doing is illegal. However the proposals stop short of forcing ISPs to cut pirates off altogether.
Some people think this doesn't go far enough....
