Charles Dunstone ist Gründer und Vorstandsvorsitzender von The Carphone Warehouse, des weltweit größten unabhängigen Filialisten für Telekommunikation. Er hat zum Thema File Sharing eine klare Meinung:
If you try speed humps or disconnections for peer-to-peer, people will simply either disguise their traffic or share the content another way. It is a game of Tom and Jerry and you will never catch the mouse. The mouse always wins in this battle and we need to be careful that politicians do not get talked into putting legislation in place that, in the end, ends up looking stupid.
If people want to share content they will find another way to do it. … It is more about education and allowing people to get content easily and cheaply that will make a difference. This idea that it is all peer to peer and somehow the ISPs can just stop it is very naive.
