Let's Kill The British Digital Economy Bill

Let's kill the Digital Economy Bill
The voice of the people
By Asavin Wattanajantra

THE PEOPLE have the chance to rise up and crush the Digital Economy Bill before the UK Government grovels before the entertainment cartels.

Thanks to people power society 38 Degrees and the Open Rights Group, Internet users who object to the threat of disconnection can write to their MPs and prevent the Government from rushing the bill through.

The people will also join the companies like BT, TalkTalk, Google, Yahoo and Ebay in opposing the bill, which is readily supported by music companies and has already been hustled through the House of Lords.

There are several major issues that campaigners have with the bill, such as clause 17, which would allow ministers to muck around with copyright law at their whim in the future and ramp up even more severe penalties against Internet users who are merely suspected of having infringed copyrights.

The bill would also allow ISPs to punish subscribers without the need for a court injunction, with their connections suffering from being "cancelled, capped, bottlenecked, shaped or simply slapped with a discretionary fine" as another Inquirer writer nicely put it.

It does look like the bill won't really be examined as closely as it should be due to the rush towards the election in May. But through Twitter and other social networks it already seems clear that people are definitely not keen on this bill and what it could mean for them.

But will the government, or indeed the opposition parties listen to the people through these channels, as they so often claim they do? Would people vote for or against a certain party on the basis of one policy? It wouldn't be that much of a stretch to think that they might.
