Aiming at Copyright Infringers and Hitting the Digital Economy

(Tech News Review)
by William H. Dutton [Prometheus]. Abstract: This article was written as a response to a piece by Birgitte Andersen, which raised concerns over the implications of the UK's Digital Economy Bill. I focus on several reasons why the Bill would not achieve its intended objectives, and is likely to have other, unanticipated negative impacts.
