A new service from mysociety.org is a web-based petition system, hosted by the Prime Minister’s office. Some of the petitions submitted are clearly from loonies and the socially maladjusted, but some are of genuine interest and importance. One of the top five most popular petitions is:
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to create a new exception to copyright law that gives individuals the right to create a private copy of copyrighted materials for their own personal use, including back-ups, archiving and shifting format.
Almost 1,500 signatures have been added to the above petition so far. If you’re a British citizen and support the motion, then please take a minute (and that’s all it does take) to sign up here. Another top five petition is:
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to scrap the proposed introduction of ID cards.
