Please don’t rush through a bill that is ill conceived. It show’s a total lack of understanding of the situation and a complete lack of backbone when it comes to dealing with the media Industry.
They need to find a new business model and focus on attacking their business partners. We buy the media, we use the media and now we’ve changed the way we use media, take Spotify as a example and they want to attack people in a completely unfair manner.
So I’m writing to you today because I’m very worried that the Government is planning to rush the Digital Economy Bill into law without a full Parliamentary debate.
The law is controversial and contains many measures that concern me. The controversial Bill deserves proper scrutiny so please don’t let the government rush it through. Many people think it will damage schools and businesses as well as innocent people who rely on the internet because it will allow the Government to disconnect people it suspects of copyright infringement.
Industry experts, internet service providers (like Talk Talk and BT) and huge internet companies like Google and Yahoo are all opposing the bill – yet the Government seems intent on forcing it through without a real debate.
As a constituent I am writing to you today to ask you to do all you can to ensure the Government doesn’t just rush the bill through and deny us our democratic right to scrutiny and debate.
Please listen to the people who you represent not the media moguls loosing a grip on their business models based from a bygone era.
