Controversial UK bill passes into law
The UK government has rushed through the exceedingly controversial Digital Economy Bill just before the next General Election, despite heavy opposition even from within the Labour Party.
Included in the bill are powers to block websites "likely to be used for or in connection with an activity that infringes copyright" and disconnect internet users suspected of acts of piracy.
The bill has been criticised by consumer rights groups and even some major ISPs, saying that it could mean the end of free, open wireless internet in Britain.
The bill is not all bad news as it finally creates a single and legally-binding age rating system for video games in the redesigned PEGI ratings.
