The Null Device

Germany's recording industry body, the Bundesverband der Phonographischen Wirtschaft, are calling for filters to be installed at "key Internet junctions", blocking downloads of copyrighted materials. Chances are this technology is already well under development, if Sony senior vice president Steve Heckler's comments last year are anything to go by, and it only needs the political will or pressure to force it onto ISPs and the public, either with legislation or the threat of lawsuits.
