Plans to block websites that host ********* infringing material are to be dumped by the government.
Business secretary Vince Cable announced the change following a review of the policy by telecoms regulator Ofcom.
Website blocking was one of the key provision contained in the Digital Economy Act.
Internet Service Providers had objected to the idea that ********* owners could compel them to cut off some sites.
