The lengthy process of implementing the UK Digital Economy Act’s anti-piracy provisions rumbles on. According to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Ofcom will publish its draft Initial Obligations Code of Practice for ISPs in June, outlining technical measures and notifications to be taken by telcos. Legal challenges from ISPs had delayed publication of the code. “The point upon which we lost in both cases has meant that we have had to re-set how the costs of the process will be apportioned. This in turn has led to the Initial Obligations Code being delayed. However, we anticipate that the code will be published in June 2012,” explains the DCMS in an official document published yesterday. This is a draft, mind: the first warning letters aren’t expected to be sent to accused infringers until early 2014, still.
