DCMS have been continuing their meetings with rights holders and intermediaries about voluntary co-regulation agreements to tackle copyright infringement online. We've blogged many times about these before. There have been discussions about new website blocking measures, around action that could be taken by ad networks, and about additional powers over search engines.
This release contains the proposals written by search engines for how they can improve their work to tackle infringement. The proposals are a response to initial proposals made by rights holders, which we wrote about earlier.
