The Digital Economy Act

The Digital Economy Act was passed by the British government in 2010. The most controversial aspects of the Digital Economy Act include the potential for persistent illegal file-sharers to be disconnected from the web and face criminal action and for copyright holders to be given the power to block access to websites hosting illegal content.

This holds specific challenges for organisations as their role and responsibilities with regards to the Digital Economy Act are currently unclear.

These tools aim to explain and offer practical advice about the implementation of this legislation for public bodies.
