I'm not sure what they could do about it at the moment, I think they have more high priority issues to sort out than the Digital Economy Act. The way those two are carrying on maybe they'll rename it the Digital Comedy Act.
There are more pressing immediate problems, yes, but for the longer term commercial competitiveness of the UK in world markets, we can't just look at today and tomorrow - we have to think years ahead.
There can surely be few more important investments in the infrastructure of the country than its communications network. Not only will this ensure that the UK remains at the heart of world commerce, but effective high-speed communications will also help to reduce the need for travel by road and by air - both significant contributors to climate change.
You're right - it has nothing to do with illegal downloaders. But the thread asks for our views on what the coalition Government should do about the Digital Economy Act. I believe, as I said above, that they should be putting their weight behind an urgent, root-and-branch upgrading of the whole national communications infrastructure.
In other words, the Digital Economy.
Illegal downloading is an important topic, but it's only a small part of the whole picture.
