Digital Economy Bill — ISP obligations to take account of injunctions — 3 Mar 2010 at 16:45

Lord Laird voted with the majority (Content).

The majority of Lords voted in favour of add to the list of obligations of internet service providers[1] the fact that it that it may also account of circumstances whereby injunctions for preventing access to specified online locations for the prevention of online copyright infringement may be brought.[2]

After introducing this amendment, he explained

  • I apologise for the slightly artificial introduction of this amendment at this point in the proceedings. The use of a paving amendment, Amendment 120A, at this juncture is simply a result of the desire of the signatories to the amendment to ensure a proper debate in prime time in this House of the merits of Clause 17 and our proposed substitute for it.

Clause 17 is entitled Power to amend copyright provisions.
