UK government mulls net controls

The government is talking to ISPs about blocking access to websites deemed to help people infringe copyright.With the help of ISPs and content makers it has set up a working party to see how such a pro-active blocking system would work.Discussions about the site blocking system emerged in a letter sent to the Open Rights Group (ORG).The ORG said site blocking was a “bad idea” that could overstep laws set up to police copyright infringement.
