The UK Reportedly Introducing new Anti-Internet Piracy Measures

by Sanya Khetani

Business Insider 10 February 2012

 

A British minister made a statement in a parliamentary debate on
Wednesday to the effect that the British government was looking at
introducing new proposals to prevent online copyright infringement,
IPtegrity reports.
“We are closely considering the issue around blocking access,
whether to block access to websites that infringe copyright... An
announcement is imminent, and I think that it will be
welcomed,” Minister of State for Business Mark Prisk said.
He did not give any details, saying he did not want to "pre-empt"
anything.
A number of pro-copyright MPs support Prisk's statements, saying
the UK's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the telecoms regulator,
OfCom, have been giving too much leeway and support to IT industry
lobbyists, and not enough to the music industry. Scottish Nationalist
MP Pete Wishart went so far as to call them "anti-copyright", alleging
that the government was being unduly influenced by Google.
