Digital Economy Act – somebody cares!

Before the election, as part of the campaign against the Digital Economy Bill (now unfortunately passed into law), I used a tool to contact the various candidates who were standing in my constituency. This was at the end of April.
I’ve now had one response, from David Ward, who was the Liberal Democrat candidate and was elected as my MP. It essentially re-iterates the LibDem’s view that the act should not have been passed during the ‘wash-up’ and that they “remain to be convinced about the necessity for technical measures”.
No other candidates responded, and the previous MP Terry Rooney (Labour) did not respond to my earlier message either.
On the subject of the Digital Economy Act, the Open Rights Group have a petition for repealing it – it’s attracted a lot of signatures already.
