UK Government To Review Web Site Blocking [bbc.co.uk]
|The UK government has announced that it is to look again at plans to block websites that infringe copyright. |
The controversial measures formed part of its crackdown on net pirates, outlined in the Digital Economy Act (DEA).
The decision to review it follows a raft of complaints about the workablility of the legislation.
Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has now asked Ofcom to consider the viability of blocking certain websites.
