Digital Economy Act: Respond or Repeal?

As I and many others noted at the time, the Digital Economy Act was one of the most disgraceful abuses of the parliamentary process in recent years. It was a badly-drafted bill, with lots of glaring problems, but it was pushed through a near-deserted House of Commons in the dying hours of the previous government. Despite its incorrect premises, shoddy framing and outright final stupidities, it is still hauling its unlovely carcass through the implementation process after several legal challenges failed to put it out of its misery.
