Dear Bozena Michalska

Minister Ed Vaizey has confirmed to Open Rights Group that Government  
ministers are talking to copyright lobby groups and Internet Service  
Providers about a voluntary "Great Firewall of Britain" website  
blocking scheme.

They want to block websites that music and film companies accuse of  
copyright infringement.

But a 'self regulatory' censorship scheme places decisions about what  
you can and cannot look at online in the hands of businesses. It would  
remove the vital judicial oversight required by existing powers.  
Inevitable mistakes would lead to the censorship and disruption of  
legitimate traffic from businesses, publishers and citizens. And there  
is little evidence it will have any beneficial effects for the  
creative economy.

The good news is that the Minister has promised to include civil  
society groups in future discussions. We need to be there to counter  
the pressure rightsholders are exerting on decision makers.

You can do your bit by letting your MPs know that website blocking is  
not acceptable and that the voice of civil society needs to be part of  
the discussions. Please email them now to tell them to oppose web

Thank you,

Jim Killock,
Executive Director, Open Rights Group
