ISPs hit back at Digital Economy Bill

News: 9th July 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Finance, Law & Music Business, Record Labels

There was always an element of disapproval of the Digital Economy Bill from some of the internet service providers, and some argue that the Bill was rushed through parliament. Now, BT and Talk Talk have taken it upon themselves to seek a judicial review of the Bill, in basic terms to check out the legality of it before it comes into practice.

This will come as quite a kick in the teeth to the BPI who have rallied very hard to get the Digital Economy Bill passed. The Bill certainly has stirred up many arguments and discussions over the past 6 months, and this looks set to continue.
