Government efforts to reboot the controversial UK Digital Economy Act (DEA), which seeks to identify and possibly even disconnect ("suspend") those suspected of "illegal" internet copyright infringement from their broadband access, have been dealt another blow today after it was revealed that ISPs BT and TalkTalk had been granted "permission to appeal and expedition" against the findings of a Judicial Review into the DEA earlier this year (here).

The Court of Appeal had initially thrown out an attempt by two of the country's largest broadband providers to challenge a rejection of their Judicial Review, which alleged that the act did not comply with various EU laws, although in reality there are many stages to the appeals process and it was thus not an outright rejection.

Now to see if the UK government does listen to counter arguements.  8)

I dont think it matters what the arguements are, the UK has signed up to certain parts of EU law and disconnecting folks internet based on media Cartel heresay is not due process of law and thus is in breach of its treaty undertakings.
