Talking to my MP about the Digital Economy Act

I had a constructive meeting with my Member of Parliament yesterday, in which he agreed to push this critique of the Digital Economy Act (the dire nonsense that Lord Mandelson forced through in the dying seconds of the previous UK parliamentary session, apparently at the behest of the copyright exploitation industry, who will presumably now owe him a few lucrative consultancies)

If you're wanting to do something similar, feel free to use the content, or use it for inspiration, or just use the one-page PDF version if that's helpful to you in explaining the worthlessness of this law.

Note, I know there are many other points that could be made, but I was restricting myself to one side of A4 (just) -- MPs cannot be expected to read more it seems.
