Possibly Andrew writing that headline
Though if you're an American you might want to read "Alleged" for "Accused" and all is well again. Except that by now "alleged" has become so overused as to imply the speaker assumes guilt but has to fudge for legal reasons, or goes down this route expressly for the sake of sensation. Anyhow. If you're trying to be pedantic, the headline is quite correct if not exactly value free.
But then this is el reg, where commenters are commentards and anyone downloading anything must be a freetard. Though the commenters, excuse me, commentards tend to disagree with the staunchest rights holders advocate. I won't say shill because he does try to make an argument and occasionally makes for entertaining discussion. And, let's be honest, whenever the BPI or whichever rights holders association this week gets another shoddy report full of unfounded conclusions and obviously incorrect numbers fit to the conclusions made into government policy, the register will slam them and the government for it, and rightly so.
Personally I don't really agree with any of this, as I like as-slim-as-reasonable-but-no-slimmer governments that refrain from moral judgements themselves, and I dislike how big copyright lobbyism has perverted the entire system into an everlasting goal in and of itself. But that's neither here nor there. The headline isn't incorrect and doesn't imply more than it does, provided you know the local lingo.
The basic problem I have with this is that the costs and trouble, supposedly to be ponied up by the copyright industry, are slowly being deflected back unto the accused twenty quid at a time, and as the article reports, the accused aren't being left with overmuch ways to appeal. This I say is another sign that reinventing judicial process without judicial oversight isn't the smartest thing to do. Yet it is /de rigeur/ at the moment, with anything having to do with teh intarwebz. That general trend is something to be aware of and an excellent excuse to take a big heavy large spiky cluebat to the heads of government.
