UK Will Not Disconnect File-Sharers

UK Will Not Disconnect File-Sharers

The UK’s government has finally responded to e-petition, which asked to make sure that file-sharers are provided with a possibility to see a fair trial before finding themselves disconnected from the web. Instead, Her Majesty’s government decided to take the disconnection clause off the table completely.

The controversial Digital Economy Act of the United Kingdom is facing the real scrutiny after all. This type of investigation the Bill missed in spring, when it was rushed through the “wash-up” period before elections. In fact, a process that would’ve otherwise taken a fee weeks if not months of discussion appeared to be squeezed into a merely 2-hour Commons debate with just 5% of MPs participating.

The Bill, and later the Act, drew much attention, because it included the provision of Internet disconnection, as well as the mandatory website filtering, and ban on public Wi-Fi. All these measures were suggested for tackling unauthorized file-sharing. Nevertheless, it was disconnection clause that people had most concerns about, claiming that it violates their fundamental rights and freedoms.

Recently, one of the executives for UK largest broadband provider TalkTalk submitted an e-petition to the PM’s Office, where he asked that he cancel this particular provision of the Act or ensure that those accused are guaranteed a free and fair trial. The number of signatures under this e-petition surpassed 35,000.

The UK’s government has finally responded to the request. Surprisingly, instead of promising the fair trial to the file-sharers, it has decided to rather abolish the section with Internet disconnection completely, though it admitted that digital copyright violation causes significant damage for the British creative industry, harming music, movies, games, TV, sports and software. While the DEA mentions a number of means to address the problem of online infringement, the government expects them to be successful in considerably reducing the rate of copyright violation. However, it indicated that it’s really an area of rapid technological advance and changing consumer behavior. All this means that the DEA includes a reserve power to implement further “technical” measures to address the problem should the initial ones fail. But, either way, they would only limit an infringers’ access to the web, not disconnect them completely.
