All eyes in the UK industry are on the government’s Digital Britain report, which is due to be published later today. It’ll include details on plans to tackle online piracy, with speculation that it’ll include plans for the mooted Rights Agency to oversee this area.Warning letters from ISPs may be given higher priority, but three strikes style disconnections appear off the agenda – not least because Prime Minister Gordon Brown has penned an article for The Times this morning saying that access to the internet is “as indispensable as electricity, gas and water”.The report’s publication follows yesterday’s announcement by Virgin Media and UMG of their unlimited music service. We’ll have more details on Digital Britain, plus reactions from the industry, on this blog later today.
