Universal hails anti-piracy deal


Universal Music chairman Lucian Grainge says Virgin Media's decision to temporarily cut off illegal file sharers led to an "unlimited" download deal between the two companies.

For a monthly fee, Virgin's broadband customers will be able to download or stream as many MP3 files as they want.

As part of the deal, Virgin has pledged to aggressively police use to stop the MP3 tracks going to file-sharing networks.
