ELSPA applauds Digital Economy Bill

Following Her Majesty’s broadcast earlier today, European video games regulator ELSPA has backed the pro-copyright and age restriction measures outlined in the Queen’s Speech.

We are delighted with the commitment made today by the UK Government to tackle the widespread problem of online copyright infringement and intellectual property theft, through more effective legal action and consumer education,” ELSPA director general Mike Rawlinson stated.

We also fully support the promise to invest in next generation wireless and mobile broadband technologies.

We would encourage the Government to commit to these plans at the earliest possible stage to ensure that the UK is a world-leader when it comes to the digital economy.”
