Japanese ISPs To Ban File Sharers

jJapan has decided to beat France and the United Kingdom (both who have similar proposals) to become the first country to ban file sharers from the internet.

Oddly the agreement to do so has not come from the Japanese Government, but from Japan’s four internet service provider organizations after pressure (not surprisingly) from the record and movie industries. According to Torrent Freak, the agreement would see copyright holders tracking down file-sharers on the Internet using “special detection software” and then notifying ISPs of alleged infringers. File sharers will initially receive a warning for a first offense, then be disconnected for subsequent offenses, eventually be disconnected from the internet permanently (it wasn’t clear whether the agreement is a three strikes proposal).

The process will formally commence in April and will primarily target users of Winny, the most popular file sharing network in Japan.

and from what i know about bands/artists is that they don't care if you download their music instead of buying it, as long as you support them >.<

I know of a few artists who admitted to downloading music, however, I've never heard of any that stated they don't care if people download their music rather than actually purchase CDs.

In fact, there are been a number of bands (particularly Indies bands) who have actually disbanded because so many people were downloading their music that they simply could not afford to keep the band going.
