      Do a search.Talk Talk petition gains momentum and now has over 30.000 signatures.
      I have, the petition was opened in October 2009 and had 30,000 sigs up till 14/12, checking the latest figure it is at 35,363, not much improvement in 4 months! Don't rush along to sign up, the petition is closed for the duration of the General Election.

      The petition was submitted by Andrew Heaney of TalkTalk, who I would think has the backing of his CEO Charles Dunstone.

      Good luck to TalkTalk, they are taking a brave stance and will no doubt gain quite a few new subscribers. Any illegal downloader would be foolish to turn there backs on the offer of not being prosecuted for downloading all the copyright material they want..

      If all this is true, which it looks like it will, i think they'll be a booming market for decent proxy's.

      ISP are not being asked to censor people using illegal downloading sites. They are being asked to act on instructions from Ofcom, which is what most are objecting to. They want court orders before they take any action against their users, not just an instruction from a quango.
      [UK] It's not just TalkTalk - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

      Read it in that thread.

      No one should take much notice of what is posted in forums unless they quote official sources.

      I wonder how many have actually bothered to read the Digital Economy Act? Here it is in full for anyone who wants to try. Digital Economy Act 2010 (c. 24)

      They don't need to give you a static IP, your ISP knows exactly who had what IP at any given time. Trust me I know!

      But it'd be one less thing for them to worry about - lawyers ask for details of an IP, ISP has it instantly

      Your ISP has all the info instantly anyway. And they're powerless to refuse a court order to reveal your details. Better to stick to legal stuff

      The Minister for Digital Britain (Stephen Timms) knows what an IP address is, we have no reason to be worried.
