Repeal the rushed and undemocratic Digital Economy Bill / Law.


The Bill places the onus of proving innocents on the accused, rather than "innocent until proven guilty", it is generally unrealisitic and unfair

Why is this idea important?

This Bill was rushed through the house without proper consideration, some of the debaters did not even know what IP stood for.

The Bill was fundamentally flawed

You are guilty until proven innocent.

They only rely on an IP address which is very easy to fake, some software distribution websites deliberately "seed" millions of phoney IP address. An IP address is wholly inadequate as proof.

You are responsible for your Wireless Internet Security. Wi-Fi is not very secure and to put the reasonability for its security on none IT people is ridiculous. How is my 82 year old mother in law supposed to be aware if her Wi-Fi is secure or not.

It puts the onus of policing on the Internet Providers, this is akin to holding the alcohol producers reasonable for policing Friday and Saturday night pub "chuck out" time.

Parliament has the power to amend the law with no further need to debate changes in the house. This seems very unconstitutional and very un UK like.
