"Internet at public libraries could be on the chopping block as a result of new anti-piracy laws, says the library association. "
Absolute load of poppycock! The library internet blocks all p2p traffic and have done since the beginning, so they're not in the slightest risk unless we see a more aggressive anti-downloading law such as the USA's new "PROTECT-IP act"http://www.fairfieldcommunity.org.nz/ho ... ter-access
is an entirely different story. This is a community initiative to provide computers and the internet on a zero budget, by using free software. There's a filter in place to prevent access to porn but p2p software (specifically bit torrrent) is intentionally not filtered because we WANT people to be able to download Free and Open Source software, and much of that is distributed via p2p in order to keep hosting costs manageable.
