UK ISP Karoo go 3 strikes

UK ISP Karoo are implementing a 3 strikes policy according to the Guardian.
"Internet users in Hull risk having their connection cut if they illegally share files, under a controversial "three strikes and out policy" operated by the only internet service provider in the area.

Karoo, the north-eastern city's only ISP, serving 90,000 customers, has in recent years, with little national publicity, been cutting users' internet connection immediately and without warning if they were found to be in breach of copyright.

It was forced to relax its stance after growing criticism from digital rights groups and customers."
