That is they agree on the principle of the breaks, not necessarily the specifics, whatever they will be. 'Three strikes' Internet piracy ban is 'bad law'.
The ELSPA hosted a panel show which included Conservative shadow minister Ed Vaizey, Labour MP Tom Watson and the Liberal Democrats' Don Foster covering a number of issues regarding our beloved videogames industry in the UK.
Vaizey said the Conservatives, while avoiding if they would back the same plans as Labour, will be pushing for tax breaks for the industry in Britain: "We are going to support tax breaks for the videogames industry," he pledged on the panel.
Should the measure pass through Parliament, which looks a little precarious right now, then the industry wouldn't start to feel the benefit until 2011. The three MPs also touched on the proposed Digital Economy Bill, which has a highly controversial issue inside.
"If you make laws quickly, you make bad laws," said MP Watson, referring to the 'three strikes' plan for those caught in software and media piracy. "Shame on you both and shame on my front bench," added Watson.
Vaizey meanwhile called it "sensible and constrained," and said if Parliament couldn't pass the law then "a new government would find it very difficult to push through legislation of that complexity." The next week or so will prove interesting for UK Internet.
Do you feel that piracy offenders should be suspended from the Internet?
