Justice in Italy is it seems not the same justice many folks in other lands have come to expect, under a new proposal guilt is now irrelevant.http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20110919/03081816004/italy-proposes-law-that-will-ban-people-internet-based-single-accusation-infringement-anyone.shtml
Glyn Moody points us to a frightening analysis of a proposed copyright law in Italy that seems positively ridiculous, in that you could lose access to the internet based on a single accusation (which doesn't even have to come from the copyright holder):
The post notes that this law would be compliant with an early version of ACTA, and suggests that this was done on purpose. However, the report also notes that this proposed law would clearly not be compatible with current EU law. Either way, that's quite a wish list from the entertainment industry.
The proposals laid out are pretty draconian and only likely to be supported by a media cartel led "gift and favour" campaign as that is their usual way to get bad laws on the statute books of many countries, of course all such erosion's of traditional justice and legal freedoms simply ensures the rule is law is brought into disrepute and folks simply disconnect from such political chicanery and politicians in general.
They reap what they sew
