Kenneth Branagh and Richard Curtis are among the directors and producers who have signed a letter demanding action be taken on illegal file sharing. The BBC reports.

They want the government to force internet providers to stop customers from downloading films and TV shows.

"We are very concerned that the successes of the creative industries in the UK are being undermined by the illegal online file-sharing of film and TV content," the group of more than 100 signatories said. quotesmarksleft.jpg
