UK ISPs will pay quarter of copyright notification costs, says Government

Internet service providers (ISPs) will have to bear a quarter of the costs of the copyright protection systems to be set up under the Digital Economy Act (DEA), the Government has said. ISPs have objected to the decision.The DEA demanded that telecoms regulator Ofcom set up a system through which rights holders could notify ISPs that subscribers were engaging in copyright infringing activity. After a third warning to subscribers, ISPs make details of those subscribers available to rights holders to be used as the basis of legal action.
