Still trying to figure out what they are trying to protect?
What "sector". If SA content then don't worry. No one pirates SA crap.
The problem with this plan is that it a doorway to monitoring all activity, and even though the monitored user may be a goody two-shoes it is about exercising control.
This whilst public monitoring in the streets are being scrutinised.
So one lonely cadre has only just realised that something called "online" emerged from the womb of technology? It happened a long time ago but good luck with your lame duck legislation and useless brainfarts.“Piracy is damaging to the sector, it is a worldwide problem, and with the emergence of online, it has become a very damaging issue.”
mybroadband > news group forum ?Government to crack down on piracy websites in South Africa
The South African government plans to crack down on illegal file-sharing and streaming websites in South Africa.
Speaking to the Parliament Portfolio Committee on Communications, the Department of Communications and Digital Technologies (DCDT) said ISPs should be required to cooperate with the government to fight online piracy.
Can't help but think that this is all a strategy. First get rid of Netflix through stupid regulations, TV license idea, taxes ect. Then when people turn to piracy they try and block that. And then in comes the SABC's streaming service "to the rescue"
IRC, darn, a long, long time since I was last on an IRC server, they still running. Thought everything had moved to Discord.
