Britain Proposes 10-Year Prison Terms for Copyright InfringementWelcome to the debate in Britain, where long, decade-long prison terms for online copyright infringement are being soundly rejected by the public, with copyright violations themselves not being viewed as a serious crime.

Currently, British statutes call for two-year term maximums. And that may be the extent of it: according to just-released survey data, nearly 98% of the British public hate the idea of a long-term lockup for infringement.

The debate over prison terms started last year, when UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) recommended far stiffer incarceration for large-scale online piracy. The recommendation was taken very seriously by the British government, which announced plans to pursue full, ten-year prison term maximums to adequately deter infringement activity.
