Don Foster is quoted in the article as saying:
"This is another example of the Labour Government’s total inability to meet its own targets. Having wasted years, they now want to move the goalposts and hope we don’t notice".The Digital Britain White Paper reiterated, at p. 112, the 70 per cent target, without mentioning when it might be achieved. A proposed Digital Economy Bill is expected to require internet service providers to write warning letters to households where piracy is found to have taken place, with ISPs having to hand over personal details of serious repeat infringers so that they can be taken to court. However, this Bill is unlikely to come into law before 2010, some 18 months after the original commitment to reduce piracy by 70 per cent was given.
