Three Strikes and You're Out Come 2013, Says Ofcom

By Sam Gibbs on at

Ofcom is aiming to start up its controversial 'three strikes' system in 2013 to tackle piracy. The scheme will see notification letters sent out to file sharers, while ISPs will have to keep track of alleged infringers.

The 'obligations code', which Ofcom hopes will see ISPs start to implement the tracking infrastructure by early 2012, has yet to be finalised. A judicial review is also under way, which could push back piracy plans even further, whether or not the government signs off on the legislation. [TechRadar]
