The U.K. Government is set to publish its proposals for tackling illegal file-sharing on Feb. 22.

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) says that is the provisional date for the strategy document on the Creative Economy Programme.

As previously reported, U2 manager Paul McGuinness gave a hard-hitting speech at Midem last month blaming ISPs for failing to act on illegal file-sharing by their customers.

This week the BPI said it would welcome government leglislation that made ISPs prevent users distributing music via peer-to-peer networks.
