BT and TalkTalk will launch a fresh challenge against the controversial Digital Economy Act.

 

The companies have been granted permission to appeal against a High Court ruling that upheld most of the anti-piracy law.

 

Like many service providers, they believe that the law unfairly compels them to police users' behaviour.

The only reason why this is happening is because BT are losing grip on BT Wholesale (LLU or unbundled connections).

 

They loved dominating the market by hoarding the GPO copper and selling them on through third parties. Now that BT aren't cracking the whip, they're feeling the pressure.

 

Especially now that companies are installing their own equipment in cabinets and exchanges. Not to having to live under the "gaze" of ofcom.

 

Personally I think OfCom aren't taking a strict enough approach to things.

 

Fine they throw the odd £400,000.00 fine here and the odd £42,000,000.00 fine there but that has absolutely zero impact on the offending companies.

 

The people at the end of that whip are the end-users, us. The loss in revenue is ushered across to us, dobbed as "necessary increases as OfCom fees increased"..

 

I'm just waiting to see when someone will realise that they're just running around in circles.

 

Didn't Albert Einstein quote: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”
