The implementation of the online infringement of copyright initial obligations has been affected by a number of factors. We now have the judgment from the judicial review, and are currently considering the changes which will need to be made to the cost-sharing statutory instrument in light of this. This will inevitably impact on the timetable for implementing the notification provisions of the Digital Economy Act. The report by Ofcom into the workability of sections 17 and 18 of the Act is due shortly. I will set out what action we plan to take as soon as we have had an opportunity to consider the report and all other relevant factors.
