Digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) also criticised the government plans, saying that the legislation could actually undermine the digital economy, rather than shore it up.

"The Digital Economy Bill has an open-ended requirement that ISPs pay for and implement record-keeping and technical measures against subscribers."
