Correspondence with the EC regarding DEAct Cost Order

James Firth made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

Please provide copies of all letters sent to the European Commission (Information Society and Media Directorate General) in relation to draft legislation Online Infringement of Copyright (Initial Obligation) (Sharing of Costs) Order 2011 since December 2010.

In particular I would like a copy of a document sent to the Commission in response to case reference "EU Pilot system; case 1695/11/INSO" on or around the 18th January 2011 and a further letter in relation to the same case reference sent on or after 8th February 2011. I would also like copies of any other correspondence sent to the EC on this matter.

May I draw your attention to the fact that the European Commission has chosen to release its own correspondence in relation to this case under public access regulations (Regulation number 1049/2001), therefore there is no obligation to protect the response of the UK government on the grounds that it might expose a confidential position of the Commission.

(Reference of EC public document release here: and here

Yours faithfully,

James Firth
