Illegal downloaders 'face UK ban'

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7240234.stm

Surely the most cost and time efficient way to stop illegal downloading is to target the services, not the individual people.

After all, which is going to take less effort: tracking down one person that's running a service and thus automatically stopping hundreds of people using it, or tracking down the hundreds of users?

  3. Music and film companies claim that the illegal downloads cost them millions of pounds in lost revenues.

    And yet they don’t appear to be having money issues, do they? I might have missed the many articles about all the labels etc going bankrupt.
