Web consultant Colin Tatehas launched a site to track how long will it take to repeal the controversial Digital economy Act, which was drawn up largely to favour music companies, threatens web site blocking and could lead to users being disconnected form the Internet.

The Repeal The Digital Economy Act site does what it says on the tin, featuring a big clock.

In fact Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, prior to the election, agreed, saying the act “badly needs to be repealed” and that he was “extremely worried that it will now lead to completely innocent people having their internet connections cut off.”

The site also carries an interesting interview with Labour MP Tom Watson, on why he voted against the Digital Economy Act, below.
