Disconnection notices served to UK Music, BPI and politicians

On Thursday, our 'Police' visited the offices of the BPI, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour parties, and UK Music, and presented them with notice that the Digital Economy Bill is disconnected, from democracy, human rights, public opinion and sound business sense.

We are in a short intense battle but this is a long game. The Digital Economy Bill, whether defeated or not, is just the start. We will continue to expose the lobbying and manipulation of corporate lobbyists and the irrespnisibility of many politicians, in order to win our fight to defend our rights as citizens. That why we need you to join.

    I am part of the EU Commission's eYouGuide team. While searching for relevant websites providing useful information on online security I came across your blog. I thought that you might want to know about the EU Commission's eYouGuide as it contains some useful info on the subject: http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/eyouguide/navigation/index_en.htm?mid=privacy

    (The eYouGuide site sets out the online rights of European consumers, covering issues as diverse as protecting online privacy, buying online safely or handling spam.)

    Best regards,

    Disconnection without conviction or trial is contrary to the Bill of Rights.
    Reversal of burden of proof is contrary to natural justice.
    Why should we do such damage purely for corporate profit?
