Highest Court in EU Prohibits the P2P filtering by ISP

at 11:28 - 24th, November 2011
This is shocking, really just shocking.

While the US is still pondering SOPA, we just got some absolutely fantastic news out of Europe. The European Court of Justice, the highest court in the European Union, has just ruled that P2P filters installed by ISPs violate the European Directive on electronic commerce as well as fundamental rights [full ruling]. This is a hugely important ruling that effectively protects all member states of the European Union from ever being subjected to ISP filtering and spying.

Remarkable because you have countries like France that have the Three Strike Law, something which I'm sure US and even Canadian governments are just itching to implement.

Can you imagine unlimited access to torrent traffic during the day even with a bell net connection? While I was on colba with my 24mbs I was downloading at 1.6 megabytes per second with torrents, absolutely fantastic. when I moved out of range of the 24mbs net speed, i was disappointed to find I was limited during the day to 10k per sec download speeds. At night I received max potential but was still a pain in the ass during the day.
