    Seatbelts provide the most important protection from serious injury in a motor vehicle accident. Belts should be able to be adjusted to fit the individual wearer. Seatbelt mounting and anchorage allow for adjustment to ensure comfort. There are other design features such as pre-tensioner belts that provide additional safety to the seatbelt retraction system. Three-point seatbelt systems provide better protection than two-point lap belts, which are sometimes fitted to the centre rear position. Airbags provide a safety barrier between the occupant and the interior of the vehicle. A driver's airbag provides protection from the steering wheel and passenger airbags also provide substantial protection in a crash.

  8. Is the UK copyright act of 1988 still an adequate means of protecting intellectual property from infringements such as illegal copying, plagiarism and piracy?

    a copyright work in the course of a business, or distributes "otherwise than in the course of a business to such an extent as to affect prejudicially the owner of the copyright" an offence will be committed. Nevertheless the extent of this protection has been greatly eroded due to fast moving changes in technology. One of the most significant legal questions surrounding the emerging Internet technologies is, admittedly, how copyright (and intellectual property in general) applies when unimaginably vast amounts of information can be digitally stored, copied and transmitted, cheaply and speedily.
