Digital Economy Bill
Here in the United Kingdom the government is busy pushing through a bill that will affect internet service providers as well as endangering the supply of internet to households in which a sole "offender" is deemed guilty of violation of copyright. This bill is known as the Digital Economy Bill and has been going through some very odd changes during the course of passage, including proposals that would tighten up the censorial elements of it, coming, from all people, from the Liberal Democrats! To read an analysis of the bill that includes linkage to a useful YouTube campaign video against it see a recent posting over at David Campbell's blog.
