UK ISP bows to record industry, to send P2P warning letters
 
It was only a matter of time before it happened - the RIAA and ISP's working in unison to stamp out copyright infringement.
 
British ISP Virgin Media has taken a halting step in that general direction by agreeing to work with the BPI, the UK equivalent of the RIAA which represents the interests of the recording industry in that country. The agreement will have Virgin sending out warning letters to those who the BPI has identified as sharing copyrighted material.
 
An initial '3 strikes and you're out' approach was suggested where repeat offenders of copyright infringement would be disconnected by their ISP. The draconian approach reportedly received little support from European Parliament, but the UK Parliament is apparently considering legislation that would compel its implementation. For now, or until we see evidence to the contrary, the RIAA and BPI seem content to continue sending out their "nastygrams"

it works fine with vista. You have to change the file extension which is only possible when you have enabled the file extensions to be shown. When you download the mpdata file it will appear as a .txt file in vista...just delete the .txt bit and you're good to go :D. I don't see this as a 'hack' per say, it just enables everyone to play on an even field.
