This consultation sets out the Government’s proposals for the sharing of costs relating to the initial obligations for addressing the problem of online infringement of copyright. The obligations themselves are set out in the Digital Economy Bill which is currently before Parliament. These obligations take forward Recommendation 39 of the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property (2006) which addressed the issue of illicit use of peer-to-peer file-sharing (P2P), the recent BIS consultations on possible regulatory options (2008 and 2009) and Action 13 of the Digital Britain Interim Report (2009).
