The Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme

As reported on the BBC website, the British Phonographic Institute (BPI) and the Motion Picture Association (MPA) have come to an agreement with UK Internet Service Providers to send “educational” letters to those downloading music files illegally, but not in line with the action promised by the the Digital Economy Act.

Many stakeholders in the music industry are disappointed, to say the least.

Mark Rose, vice chairman of the MPG has started a discussion thread on the MPG’s Forum – please read about this important issue (it affects your income!) and leave your comments (you’ll need to log in to leave a comment).
