The copyright lobby is upset once again after failing to get a clear UK government commitment to enact action that is illegal.

One of the most controversial parts of the UK Digital Economy Act 2010 (DEAct), a “technical measure” that could eventually see prolific internet pirates being disconnected (“account suspension”) from their broadband ISP, might be dropped in favour of a set financial penalty (e.g. £100+ fine).

Ofcom’s related Initial Obligations Code for ISPs currently focuses upon issuing warning letters about the detection of unlawful activity on a related customers internet account. Repeat offenders could also find their personal details being shipped on to Rights Holders for possible legal action (the first letters are not expected to be sent until early 2014).

The European union that the UK is a part of has already made it clear that cutting off of someones internet connection will be a clear breach of human rights, after all the so-called "rights holders" have the funds and the technical capability to bring folks to court themselves, yet they don't wish to follow the law  and instead wish to push their duties as copyrights holders onto the public purse, as make no mistake folks you know who's going to be picking up the bill if the ISP's are forced to do all the work, perhaps now would be a good time to write to your MP and ask them why ordinary ISP subscribers are about to be stealth taxed at the behest of some dishonest lobby groups ?
