Illicit File Sharing Early Day Motion


I’m pleased to see that Tom Watson, MP has tabled a Parliamentary Early Day Motion

…to ensure that any citizen accused of illicit file-sharing is given the right to legal redress in a court of law before sanctions are imposed.

This directly addresses the point I made in my post Illicit P2P File-Sharing and the law and in my response to the government’s Consultation on Legislation to Address Illicit P2P File-Sharing.

The Open Rights Group has blogged about this, as has the Pirate Party.
