Digital Economy Bill

Just a quick post to let you know the Digital Economy Bill has had it’s second reading in the house of lords. This is the first oppotunity for discussion of the bill by the lords. This bill is the one that plans to introduce new measures to fight copyright infringement (amongst other things).

The debate can be watched on Parliament TV, the debate starts at 33:45 (roughly). The default option for watching the debates is Microsoft Silverlight, if you don’t have that you can use Windows Media Player (If you have the correct plugins installed this *should* work on Linux). Unfortunately there is no option for Ogg video which is natively supported in a number of browsers.

A quick word of warning, the debate is very long, several hours in fact.

You can also read the text transcript of the debate.
