Under 14 percent fully support Digital Economy Act

Poll: 70 percent call for full or partial repeal

In a PC Advisor poll, less than 14 percent of respondents (13.9 percent) stated that they fully support the Digital Economy Act.

Asked 'Where next for the Digital Economy Act?', the most popular answer, with 43.8 percent of the votes cast, was 'It should be completely repealed', followed by 'Certain elements should be repealed', with 28.5 percent.

More than 70 percent of web users in our poll, therefore, are calling for the coalition government to repeal part or all of the Digital Economy Act.

The remaining 13.9 percent of respondents to our poll chose the answer 'I have concerns, but we should accept it as law'. PCA forum member Octal commented: "I'm not sure what they could do about it at the moment. I think they have more high-priority issues to sort out than the Digital Economy Act."

At time of writing 137 people had responded to the poll.
