Re previous post – you can follow some of the tweets about the Digital Economy All-Party Group meeting on #DEAPPG. I found it rather frustrating. Very polarised between the two sides. There’s a big gulf between the BPI and the PPL, and the likes of @solobasssteve, and there weren’t any signs of it being bridged tonight.
But kudos to Eric Joyce for setting the APPG up, and there are some issues – for example, the liability or otherwise of public intermediaries, which was raised by someone from the British Library – which can usefully be explored.
Also, for those who aren’t already aware, there’s a consultation on the Digital Economy Act going on at the moment, courtesy of Ofcom – http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/consultations/copyright-infringement/
