PostSubject: BT And TalkTalk Denied Digital Economy Act Appeal   Tue Jun 21, 2011 8:13 am

Quote :
BT and TalkTalk have been refused permission to appeal against their failed legal challenge of the Digital Economy Act.

Britain's two largest internet providers were looking to overturn a high court judicial review of the controversial legislation at the court of appeal.

However, Judge Sir Richard Buxton on Monday refused the application at the high court in London.

The ruling effectively ends the two ISPs' long-running battle against the act, a central plank of government plans to curb illicit filesharing.

Government plans to send thousands of warning letters to alleged illegal downloaders – a measure introduced by the act – are set to begin in the first half of next year.

BT and TalkTalk lost a judicial review of the act in April, but vowed then to continue their legal challenge.

The ISPs believe the act infringes internet users' "basic rights and freedoms", and that it did not receive sufficient parliamentary scrutiny when it was "rushed through" in the dying days of the previous government in April 2010.
