Results tagged “Digital Economy Act” from Birmingham Post - News Blog

What, if anything, should be done about people downloading entire DVDs, CDs or copies of movies recorded on a camcorder in the cinema?

It seems to me that this is the question posed by the Digital Economy Act, and the objections it has provoked.

Criticism of the Act usually focuses on the powers it grants the Secretary of State to oblige internet service providers to cap the bandwidth or temporarily cut off "the most serious infringers" of copyright laws.
