UK Business Secretary Vince Cable made an announcement of an introduction of some recommendations provided to “modernize” IP system by allowing a number of exceptions to copyright legislation for things like limited private copying. In addition, Ofcom announced that site blocking of copyright violation wouldn’t be effective and consequently scrapped provision of the Digital Economy Act for now.

Hopefully, the government of the United Kingdom announced plans to “modernize” the IP system in the country to help create proper conditions for businesses to invest, develop and create jobs.

Business Secretary said he would implement all recommendations that have been made in an independent review on IP legislation completed this past spring by Professor Ian Hargreaves. Secretary Cable announced in a press release that the government was focused on boosting growth and the Hargreaves review emphasized the potential to grow the economy of the United Kingdom. By developing a more open copyright legislation it will allow innovative businesses to create and introduce new products and services that will be able to compete fairly in the local thriving markets for consumer equipment.

The country decided to accept the recommendations made and would set about reforming the country’s IP systems. Meanwhile, the Department for Culture Media and Sport is developing mass notification system in the Digital Economy Act. The system will be the following: in order to deter “vexatious appeals” from alleged violators trying to “disrupt the system”, they will be charged a $30 fee which will be refunded upon successful appeal.

Finally, Ofcom has also concluded that censoring websites alleged of copyright violation wouldn’t be effective, so the outfit has decided to scrap that provision of the legislation for now. If you remember, this past winter the outfit started a review of website filtering to find out if it could work in practice. The legislation demands Internet service providers to block access to online locations if their substantial portion violates copyright.

So, unlike the Unites States, it looks like the British government has come to its senses on copyright legislation in the digital age and produced a reasonable plan protecting the rights of copyright owners and consumers, at the same time encouraging the use of IP.

No avatarTo all u folks living "across the pond" in the uk, woohooo... looks like there may be a light at the end of the tunnel after all (it's a start at least) it's good to know that at least somewhere there's at least 1 or 2 politicians with brains that aren't afraid to use them or bought + owned by some corp.

No avatarIf they go ahead with the main aspects of the Digital Economy Act, ie persecuting P2P downloaders, they will LOSE all subsequent elections. Poor people can't afford to buy proper food or pay for heating. People make their own copies because that's ALL they can afford. We're presently having riots because many young people see no future for themselves in a country that is run by bankers for bankers. It takes understanding, tolerance and letting people from poorer parts of society express their views and have their views appreciated to stop riots, NOT armed force policing. Game makers do make money eg indie bundles make $ million. Musicians make money mostly through gigs and film companies are stinking rich. So why do they continue to persecute the poor?

bigcow2k avatar@6 .."So why do they continue to persecute the poor?"
It's easy: because they can and they would to protect their own bulging pockets. They have their "legalized bullying" right and they will continue to use it till they get full monopoly. It's like them saying "Thou shalt not eat my food free of charge"

Can't say anything about the US but in my 10 yrs in UK all I see is those at the top of the hierarchy of any companies/organisations only care for their own pockets, never about the future of the country/society.

No avatarWhile I agree with some of the comments of #6 & #7, the riots arn't really anything to do with "seeing a future" its plain criminals using the situation to its advantage .. as reported, leaders have been seen organising the groups of youths and inciting them to burn, steal and demolish all they can, and guess what those leaders never seem to get involved with it at the bottom level.

What a lot of people just don't seem to understand is that through the 80's & 90's a whole lot of people lived lives beyond their means, credit was freely and easily obtained .. after the world recession that credit has to be repaid, even by our own goverment (even though they arn't the ones who ran up the debt) cuts and savings have to be made otherwise within 10-15 years the UK would go the same way as Greece, While I am not happy about some of the things being done in the UK, I'd rather this than living in a bankcrupt country. Why are the public sector workers up in arms about losing final salary pensions when the private sector has had that for 10 years or more .. we cannot afford final salary pensions - end of.

It sounds to me like some people want their cake, to eat it and never have to pay for it.

Maybe if the young had a little bit more respect for authority they would get a little bit more respect back, instead they go out of their way to be bullish thinking that this country owes then something, when they haven't even contributed anything.
