Italy Prepares '"One Strike" Anti-Piracy Law 219

angry tapir writes "The Italian government is preparing an anti-piracy law that could ban Internet users from access after one alleged copyright infringement, a lawyer and an analyst warned. ISPs would be required to use filters against services that infringe copyright, trademark or patents under terms of the draft law. The proposed changes to Italy's e-commerce directive were drafted in July by members of parliament belonging to the Il Popolo della Libertà (PdL) party of prime minister Silvio Berlusconi."

    What compromise ?

    "I want to be able to down load music legally".... that happened
    "I only want 1 track not the whole album" .... that happened
    "Its too expensive".... and yet in real terms music has never been cheaper
    "We only want to audit the music" .... if that were true then 8bit, mono, 22KHz sampled music would suffice, however it all seems to be the highest quality

    The truth is there is only 1 compromise that would be acceptable, all music must be free, and the musicians should get a "real job" if they want to earn money because as soon as the music becomes free then live concerts will be considered a "rip off" as "the quality is not as good", "they did not play the songs I like","its too expensive".... etc.
