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.
