The digital economy bill and the UK’s creative industries : a perspective from China
Montgomery, Lucy (2011) The digital economy bill and the UK’s creative industries : a perspective from China. Prometheus, 28(4), pp. 401-410.
The Digital Economy Bill has been heavily criticized by consumer organizations, internet service providers and technology experts on the grounds that it will reduce the public’s ability to access politically sensitive information, impinge on citizens’ rights to privacy, threaten freedom of expression and have a chilling effect on digital innovation. Its passage in spite of these criticisms reflects, among other things, the power of the rhetoric that has been employed by its proponents. This paper examines economic arguments surrounding the digital economy debate in light of lessons from one of the world's fastest growing economies: China.
