P2P Man of the Year


A headmaster who has a zero tolerance policy against file sharing has suspended 74 children for a day after they downloaded a computer game.

David Hampson, who is probably going to be named as the RIAA's Man of the Year, suspended 74 children for a day from the 2,050-pupil Tollbar Business and Enterprise College in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. By the time the game was detected by monitoring systems, dozens of children had copied it.

The school was praised this year by Ofsted as “outstanding.” Mr Hampson, who has banned mobile phones, said that strong discipline was a critical factor.
