- 10 Downing Street
- United Kingdom
This bill is a disgrace, swiftly passed through parliament with little debate, only 5% of MP's attending the debate and voted how their respective parties wished them to anyway.
Passed through right before parliament is dissolved so that this cant be brought up in parliament until May/June.
Innocent people will be persecuted by this, having their internet connections removed for simply being suspected of file sharing. This law is far too loose and will have serious application problems. It has introduced censorship to the UK, with the ability for the Secretary of State to block any website he/she believes to be associated with File Sharing. That could include website like Google!
We, the undersigned, call on the Prime Minister and MP's to further debate the Digital Economy Bill and amend or preferably abolish this bill.
