    Some thing that Interest me can they back date the accusations or do the have to state on
    what date the offence occurred, on or after 28th, or is this totally not reverent as they
    can make up a case any way they like, like the RIAA has done in the US many times..

    They don't actually need a "case" - there's no evidence or proof needed
    - if they accuse you, then you're automatically guilty. You don't have a
    right to defend yourself or see the "evidence" and you take all
    consequences of the action that they decide to take against you.

    So the carer of a homebound disabled person
    downloads some copyrighted material and the
    disable person loses their major means of communication.

    That's rather harsh.

    It's called 'Guilty until proven Innocent'

    Which is precisely why the principle of 'innocent until proven guilty' needs
    to be put into this legislation.
    Unfortunately most Politicians have to relearn this principle again and
    again, usually only after much prodding by their constituents.
    Write your MP.
