Time for some Digital Economy Act Economy

,----[ Quote ]
| For readers of this blog, one of the obvious 
| applications of this site is to seek the 
| repeal of the Digital Economy Act, which was 
| pushed through with such indecent haste just 
| before the General Election, with practically 
| no scrutiny, and a fistful of unworkable 
| proposals.


Repeal sections 11â18 of the Digital Economy Act 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Sections 11â18 of the Act were pushed forward 
| on the basis of questionable figures and 
| assumptions, will not significantly achieve 
| their stated ob jectives of reducing 
| copyright infringement, and are liable to 
| have serious unintended consequences. 



Paedo-Fear Pushes The Surveillance Agenda

| For instance, only a huge effort from
| concerned people prevented Europe from
| adopting software patents under the
| pressure of lobbying from big self-
| interested software companies. And only
| continued vigilance will prevent those big
| companies from wearing down resistance.
| In the UK a big campaign against the
| excessive measures of the Digital Economy
| Act has had some effect in tempering the
| eventual implementation as prpoposed by
| Ofcom, but it didnât kill it, because in
| the end most elected representatives
| simply donât get it, and let it pass in
| the rush before the end of the
| parliamentary session.
