U2’s manager is spearheading a campaign to end illegal music downloads from the Internet.

Paul McGuinnes - who has guided the Irish rockers to 150 million album sales over the last 30 years - has called on Internet service providers (ISP) to immediately introduce disconnection policies in a bid to deter illegal downloads.

McGuinnes is also urging the government to prosecute companies if they fail to prevent illegal file-sharing.

He says, "If you were a magazine advertising stolen cars, handling the money for stolen cars and seeing to the delivery of stolen cars, the police would soon be at your door. "That’s no different to an ISP, but they say they can’t do anything about it.

If you steal a laptop from a store or don’t pay for your broadband service, you’ll soon be cut off and nicked (arrested)."
