The line by line Committee debate on the Digital Economy Bill starts today, and is likely to last through January, according to the current Parliamentary business papers.
This is a good thing: with so many poorly thought out ideas, a long debate is needed. The lack of due process and safeguards in the current Bill has a chance of being understood in a longer debate, as well as the consequences of introducing Nescafe-style copyright law for businesses who need certainty in order to innovate.
But it also gives you a chance to make your views heard. Please write to your MP if you haven’t already; and if you’ve done that, write to a Lord as well.
And let us know how it goes!
