British Government Infringing Its Own Copyright Laws

While the Digital Economy Bill is approaching its passage, the UK’s Government, striving for tightening down on copyright, seems to behave oddly, breaking its own rules and getting involved into a copyright infringement.

DEB, being now debated in the House of Commons, is well-known to everybody. It threatens public Wi-Fi and introduces “three strikes” legislation, supposing you being accused triply of copyright infringement, you’d be cut off the Internet. Everyone could watch on BBS the debate and see how hard the government is trying to push for the Bill’s passage. Considering all this, it comes to be just incomprehensible how the Government itself managed to infringe the copyright law. One-up to UK’s Government, as even the French wasn’t that good – both Britain’s governing and opposition parties may have run contrary to the copyright legislation.

In this issue the governing party took a BBC’s poster without permission and photoshopped the leader of the opposition into it, later releasing the poster in its political election ad campaign. The opposition didn’t leave a favor unanswered and re-photoshopped the poster, replacing the message. All this was very funny of course, but the poster appeared to break every single rule of copyright law. The predictable results were not late in arriving. BBC executives were in a huff with the illegal use of the ad. One of them claimed they have never given politicians any permit to use their programs.

The situation is not as fresh and new to international observers. It all have already happened once last year in France, where the governing party, while trying to pass the similar legislation, has got busted for copyright violation. And that was not a single case – an agency, deeply involved in creating French “three-strikes” legislation, has also been caught up in a copyright infringement. Is it now the UK’s turn?

Andrew Robinson, member of the UK’s Pirate Party, pointed out that both posters give the Government two of its three strikes, which is just ridiculous. The parties, pushing Digital Economy Bill, are committing copyright violations themselves! They are like literally saying: “do as we SAY, not as we DO”. A very strong message, indeed. All it reveals is that in the UK the law doesn’t reflect the norms of the society. And, of course, it won’t have any impact on the passage, as if somebody doubted.
