Authoritiative Briefing Paper invalidates basis of Clauses 43 and 46

Gillian Spraggs of Action for Authors’ Rights has released a Briefing on the Copyright Clauses in the Digital Economy Bill. Exhaustively researched and finely argued, it is a definitive rebuttal of the entire sorry foundation to Clause 43. It also calls for the removal of Clause 46, a 'Henry VIII' clause that would confer on the executive very wide-ranging powers to modify primary legislation. It is challenging but required reading.
