Peter Mandelson is a complete and utter crook.

No surprise it passed to be honest, whether it'll actually ever be enforced is something else.

Under the terms of the Act Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be required to comply with rights-holder requests for user details, and will be expected to act as middlemen, passing on warning letters to their customers suspected of copyright infringement by the big media companies, and ultimately also as enforcers, throttling or disconnecting the Internet access of accused filesharing scofflaws.

I don't think ISPs really give a shit. They'll send out the letters and leave it at that. I've gotten one before, no big deal.
