Amendments to Digital Economy Act 2010

Comment 15th July 2010

At the current moment parts the the Digital Economy Act 2010 introduced by Lord Peter Mandelson on 8th of April which  is simply unenforceable and too draconian in statue to implerment properly.  The following changes which I propose would benefit not only Internet providers but aswell compensate Industries who lose said money to digital piracy. 

Proposel

  • The right to download copyrighted work for home use, educational purposes without any economical benefit or the intent to redistribute.
  • Creation of a new independant government body of which handles copyright on digital and internet use of said copyrighted materials and which collects payment of monies collected from a new tax .
  • A marginal tax all Internet providers would charge on top of all subcriptions made and passed to the new independant government body who then distributes the monies to the various lobbies who own the said copyright.

Why does this matter?

It decriminalises downloading copyrighted materials and takes immediate pressure off Internet providers who are currently refusing to follow regulation put down by Digital Economy Act, it also compensates the Industries who lose money through downloading of said copyrighted materials through the proper elected channels of government.
