UK P2P Code of Practice Falling Behind Schedule

UK P2P Code of Practice Falling Behind Schedule

UK digital rights advocacy outfit Open Rights Group announced that the regulatory body for the telecom industry Ofcom was experiencing a tough time working out a Code of Practice, which would delineate how service providers were required to comply with the DEA. This means that the established December deadline will go further and cause mistakes and uncertainty, thus failing to provide reassurance about the implications for the consumers’ basic rights.


Back this spring the UK’s Office of Communications started working on a Code of Practice defining how ISPs are forced to comply with attempts to fight unauthorized file-sharing under the Digital Economy Act. The Open Rights Group recently met with officials representing the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the efforts of the regulating body and to raise a few serious concerns related to Ofcom’s Code.

The concerns included such issues as standards of evidence for copyright owners, which were not defined, as well as identification of users for service providers. The standardization of letters is on the contrary clearly described in the Act but is damaged in the Code, and so is the appeals process. Among other highly debated issues were the future of Wi-Fi and the lack of impact assessments.

Meanwhile, the biggest concern the Code seems to have is the lack of the standards defining what is classified as copyright violation. The problem for the Act is heated up by the hurried timetable, because it stipulates that the Code of Practice in question has to take effect eight months from the time of Royal Assent. However, the Open Rights Group drew up a conclusion that everything was falling behind the schedule, making the situation even more frightening.

As the Digital Economy Act requires a very complex set of measures for tackling unauthorized file-sharing, it will less likely have enough time to work out everyone’s concerns. Although UK citizens were already very angry to know that the DEA was pushed through the “wash-up” period in the Parliament, with legislative discussion squeezed into a 2-hour Commons debate with 5% MPs taking part, they would probably be more disturbed with this announcement about the Code of Practice being hurried along as well. It would most probably end up with people realizing that the country will face unintended consequences after all.
