Submission + - DMCA amendment proposed for UK (

rimberg writes: The awful UK Digital Economy Bill is being debated in the House of Lords today, and">it might just get more awful.

An amendment that would open the door to nationally censoring entire websites by getting an injunction on claims of copyright infringement — so YouTube or might disappear from the British Internet if someone makes a accusation of copyright infringement against them.

The bill it self contains the disastrous three strikes law where accusations of copy right infringement can get you disconnected from the internet, but if the lords vote this amendment through it will also allow the shutting down of web sites. Please could you spare a few minutes to write to the lords so this amendment does not not get moved.
