'Three strikes' for UK's illegal downloaders

UK's top six broadband providers will be responsible for sending warnings to subscribers.

From 2014 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the UK will be sending piracy warnings to customers.

The move is part of the Digital Economy Act (DEA) which is being implemented in the UK by Ofcom, the UK's regulator for the communications industries.  The DEA applies to ISPs with more than 400,000 subscribers.

Subscribers who ignore the three warnings will be placed on the Copyright Infringement List.
