ORG welcomes Judicial Review of Digital Economy Act

Jim Killock, executive Director of the Open Rights Group said:

"We are extremely glad that judges will be taking a look at the Digital Economy Act, which we believe breaches people’s rights to freedom of expression and privacy. The Act is a mess and badly needs repealing. Judicial Review may give the government the chance to drop this heavy-handed approach to copyright enforcement."

ORG's campaign resulted in nearly 40,000 emails being sent to MPs and candidates demanding proper debate and repeal of the Act.
