Italian ISPs, bodies ask AgCom not to act against web piracy

The copyright industry has asked Italy’s Communications Authority (AgCom) to give itself the power to set up administrative procedures to block access to websites that facilitate piracy. However, Italian ISPs, associations and companies have sent an open letter to the regulator, saying that it does not have the authority to take such action and that this would be an expensive burden on state finances.

The letter was signed by the following organisations:
