UK All Party Parliamentary Communications Group on Copyright

The UK All Party Parliamentary Communications Group (apComms) is an independent group of MPs and Lords, from all political parties.  Its take on copyright:

We conclude that much of the problem with illegal sharing of copyrighted material has been caused by the rightsholders, and the music industry in particular, being far too slow in getting their act together and making popular legal alternatives available. We do not believe that disconnecting end users is in the slightest bit consistent with policies that attempt to promote eGovernment, and we recommend that this approach to dealing with illegal file-sharing should not be further considered.
