Government plans to curb illicit filesharing under the Digital Economy Act will have cost rights holders, Ofcom and internet providers almost £6m by the time the controversial legislation is implemented next year, according to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act.
The communications regulator Ofcom spent £1.8m investigating the filesharing measures last year. It expects to spend a further £4m in the financial year to March 2012, Ofcom confirmed in response to an FoI request on Thursday.
