Japan creates RIAA's dream scenario

The BPI will be casting envious glances towards Tokyo, where reports suggest Japanese ISPs are about to introduce the sort of measures against filesharers the British music industry would like to see here - with punishment, including disconnection, for the "worst" offenders.

The idea has been floated in Japan before, mind: back then, though, the government warned that it would breach privacy rules. It's not clear why things would be different in 2008.
