After failing in their joint attempt to challenge the Digital Economy Act (DEA), British ISPs BT and TalkTalk return with a statement that confirms their determination in continuing the fight against what are considered erroneous anti-piracy methods (as implemented by the DEA).

“Quite apart from the potential impact on their businesses, BT and TalkTalk believe the DEA could harm the basic rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens,” the two companies pointed out several times.

According to the statement made on Friday, the two ISPs plan to appeal against a High Court ruling in April that threw out their complaints against the Digital Economy Act almost entirely.

The Department for Media, Culture and Sport said it noted the two companies’ decision to apply to the Court of Appeal against the judicial review ruling.

On the other hand, copyright holders are more than happy with the law as it is – protective of them – and have the support of The Department for Media, Culture and Sport which recently said: “The Government remains confident that the ruling delivered by the High Court was the correct one and is continuing work to implement the Act accordingly.”

In view of the fact that the government is trying to grab additional income from any source I doubt that the appeal will succeed.  :gum:
