/ A report commissioned by the Government indicated that the process set by the digital economy for this Act was inoperative and long and laborious. The Executive believes that it is possible to block user access to pages with content pirates without recourse to the law. In addition, reform will authorize the copy for private use. The British Government has ruled out its plan to block web pages that violate copyright rights, such as the downloading of music and movies, to conclude that it is impracticable by law in the United Kingdom.
