Hanze asks: Free downloads: the end?

The state secretarie of Justice Fred Teeven wants to revive plans for a formal ban on the illegal downloading of books, films and music from the internet. Now this plan appears to have a majority support from the parliament.

The previous parliament opposed to the ban, but now the Labour party seems to support a ban on the ‘consistent and commercial use of material which is protected by copyright’.

Do the students think that this is a fair measure?
