Ofcom outlines new anti-piracy rules

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2012/jun/26/ofcom-outlines-anti-piracy-rules

Illegal downloaders will start recieving warning letters from internet service providers from 1 March 2014. Web users who get three warning letters in a year will face having anonymous information of their downloading and filesharing history provided to copyright owners, which could then be used to gain a court order to reveal the customer’s identity and take legal action against piracy. Internet users will be able to appeal against a report on their alleged infringement, at a cost of £20, which will be refunded if they are successful.
