Suspected file-sharers of copyrighted material are to receive warning letters from their internet service providers after the six largest ISPs in the UK signed a government-brokered memorandum of understanding with the country's record label association, the BPI.

BT, Virgin Media, Carphone Warehouse, Tiscali, Sky and Orange have jointly agreed to send, through the next year, "hundreds of thousands of informative letters… to customers whose accounts have been identified by BPI as being used illegally", according to a BPI statement issued on Thursday. The BPI works out who it thinks is illegally file-sharing by trawling file-sharing websites and tracing back the IP addresses of users.
