Petition Action

Scrap the Digital Economy Act 2010 (DEA)

Additional Information

The "content industry" has lied to governments and consumers over the impact on the economy due to filesharing for no cash, no profit and no personal gain.

The DEA is an ill-founded item of law based on such deception by those who perceive wrongly that they've most to lose.

The DEA must be repealed, and all Copyright legislation be brought up-to-date to reflect the changes in technology that opens the free sharing of knowledge and works to all of humanity.
