The UK’s Digital Economy Act has been law since June 2010, but its anti-piracy measures have yet to kick in. Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) chairman Paul Quirk isn’t happy. “The best information we have is that the first letters to suspected filesharers will not be sent out until the second half of 2012 and disconnections of persistent pirates will not happen before 2013,” he told the body’s annual general meeting this week, according to Billboard. “This is unacceptable. We need action on internet piracy and we need it now.” Quirk made a direct link between continued piracy and falling music and video sales in the UK. “Not all of that decline is down to piracy, but a substantial part of it certainly is and every further day of delay will only make those losses greater.” Source: Billboard
