UK: BT and TalkTalk challenge UK's Rushed Digital Economy Act [news.bbc.co.uk]
|BT and TalkTalk are seeking a judicial review of the controversial Digital Economy Act, BBC News has learned. |
The two internet service providers want the High Court to clarify the legality of the act before it is implemented.
The act was "rushed through" parliament before the general election, they say.
Both think it had "insufficient scrutiny" and question whether its proposals to curb illegal file-sharing harm "basic rights and freedoms".

One of the judges should ask them if their trials of Phorm harmed basic rights and freedoms.
