The Digital Economy bill

4 years ago

The Digital Economy bill (#debill) was passed in the 'washup' and was granted Royal assent on the 8th of April and will come into force on June the 12th.


The Digital Economy bill

is a set of proposals designed to promote 'Digital Britain'. The Act covers many areas along with that of online copyright infringement. This area has had the most media attention as it sets out measures to disconnect users from the internet. Internet subscribers who are accused of allowing their internet connections to be used for copyright infringement (both home users and public wifi owners) are now liable even if someone else downloads or uploads something over your connection. It also outlines options to block websites and disconnect those who run these services if they are believed to be used in conjunction with copyright infringement.
