Do the digital piracy laws strike the right balance?
Campaigners have been angered by what they say are attempts to rush through the digital economy bill aimed at supporting artists' copyright and tackling illegal file-sharing.
The bill allows copyright holders to apply for a court order to gain access to the names and addresses of serious infringers and take action against them while internet service providers (ISPs) would be able to suspend accounts of offenders
However, Culture Secretary Ben Bradshaw said the legislation struck the right balance between giving creative artists more protection and giving consumers a "fair deal".
Do the laws give artists more protection and consumers a fairer deal? Should there have been more debate before the laws were passed?
This debate has now been closed. Thank you for your comments.
