It seems the online petition and the support of many industries that would be affected by "media industry" friendly legislation has achieved recognition in a recent government comment on the matter.

Ministers have given a concession over what critics claimed were "draconian" powers which would enable them to crack down on online copyright infringement.A clause in the Digital Economy Bill would have allowed ministers to amend existing laws on online piracy without the need for further legislation. Google and Facebook were among firms to complain about the measure, saying it would hamper digital innovation.
The Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has accused the government of focusing unduly on enforcement rather than making it easier for people to download content legally.

Officials said they were "refining" the proposals after heeding concerns.


Keep up the good work folks and spread the news far and wide, oppression is best fought by exposure .
