UK ISPs Expecting Judicial Review of DEA

UK ISPs Expecting Judicial Review of DEA

Two of the UK’s largest Internet service providers, TalkTalk and BT, had recently asked High Court to check whether the Digital Economy Act was enforced without passing correct parliamentary procedures. Besides, they also asked it to look at whether some of the measures proposed to fight unauthorized file-sharing could harm the fundamental rights of the citizens. The ISPs expect the decision this week, but admit there might be a delay.


The legality of the UK’s DEA was called in question earlier this year by the country’s largest ISPs, which argued that the legislation was enforced without passing the correct parliamentary procedures. ISPs claim that the bill was hurried through Parliament in the “wash up” period, which means that Digital Economy Bill became law without proper scrutiny and assessment of its impact.

They were actually right, as the process which normally takes from several weeks to several months was in fact squeezed into a 2-hour debate with 5% of MPs participating. Another thing broadband providers are concerned about is that the measures suggested in the Act and aimed at preventing unauthorized file-sharing may harm the fundamental freedoms of the users.

Especially they worry about obligations imposed by the law, because they may not be compatible with European rules developed to ensure that national legislation protects the privacy of the subscribers, restricts the role of service providers in policing the web and maintains a single market.

Now the representatives of the UK ISPs expect to hear the results of the above mentioned judicial review this week. However, they are not very optimistic to meet this date. Considering the rush with which the Digital Economy Act passed through, the ISPs admit it reasonable to expect the court to take their time now to ensure they get it correct.

Actually, it’s better for the court to take its time, because the consequences the Digital Economy Act can have on the country’s citizens are very serious, including the website filtering, ban of public Wi-Fi and cutting the entire households off the Internet.

The law stipulates that a code of practice should be introduced in the country, outlining how the broadband providers should comply. The code has to be issued within eight months from the moment of Royal Assent, providing the court with a few months worth of leeway before it would be too late.

D4T4 avatar2die4 just hit the nail on the head. And he's still not been charged for his part in all this, possibly cos he's the man in black wheeling and dealing behind the scenes. Either way you look at it, it's still corporate bribery. Let's see what Camerons bunch do about this.

No avatarhear it is lawyers that need some more money so come together to make money for there firm so they can buy a bigger house with more rooms and the 5% of mp`s that voted on this there is not the chance of a back hander well you see the mp`s can`t take monies for there ponds now you see !
really it`s just the old school that`s not up to date with the internet and really when the public put 2 and 2 together it`s the movie and music makers that will lose out and of course the lawyers and only will make more money
