IN THE UK, IT WON'T BE RECORD INDUSTRY PLAYING COPS, IT'LL BE THE REAL COPS: The only computer experts who drink over at NTK have got some disturbing news that suggests the main reason why the BPI haven't bothered to bring lawsuits against filesharers - they've been waiting for the real cops to be empowered to do it instead. Why should they waste their funds on bringing legal action when they CPS will do it for them? And, yes, you could make a good argument that the police might be better off catching real criminals than people who've got the odd copy of that Placebo french re-recording of Protect Me on their hard-drive, but at least it'll give them something to do on the days when they're not illegally detaining people for having opinions that run contrary to the government.
