Jeremy Hunt urges web firms to join anti-piracy drive

The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has delivered a speech, calling on net firms, advertisers and credit card companies to cut ties with websites that link to unlawful content.

In a speech to the Royal Television Society, Mr Hunt also promised to establish a new regulatory framework for the newspaper industry.

He said a cross-media approach to regulation was vital, as broadcasters, newspapers and internet companies developed new products for smartphones, tablet computers and web TV.
