UK ISPs will have to write warning letters to illegal downloaders identified by rightsholders, after the ongoing protests of two of the largest ISPs were apparently floored by a court ruling on Tuesday finally. Under the Digital Economy Act, passed controversially in mid-2010, copyright holders could send a “copyright infringement report” to ISPs with evidence of unauthorised downloading on their network. ISPs must notify subscribers against whom the allegations are made, providing education about legal alternatives, evidence and guidance on an appeal pathway.
