The UK's Federation Against Copyright Theft has received a major blow after the Motion Picture Association advised the anti-piracy group it will not renew its membership. The termination of the 30-year long relationship means that FACT will lose 50% of its budget and the backing of the six major Hollywood movie studios.

factThe Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT)is the most aggressive private anti-piracy group currently operating in the UK.

FACT confirmed that its MPA funding is being withdrawn and is said to be considering its options. In the meantime, however, it’s unlikely that the UK will become a care-free piracy zone. The MPA says it intends to continue its work protecting copyright in the UK which will include the pursuit of more site-blocking injunctions and increased cooperation with the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit.


Fact are well know for exploiting UK law by obtaining ex-parte court orders that block web site access from the UK to sites hosted abroad, such uncontested orders make up the bulk of their work and they don't even have to go back to court currently if they claim a few strict criteria are met, most of the UK ISP's simply do as Fact demand, for this reason this is welcome news and I hope the rest of their funding is cut  :evil:
