The Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) has revealed which people and organisations have been shortlisted as the broadband industry's heroes and villains.
According to the organisation, the Internet Hero and Internet Villain prizes in its ISPA Awards are designed to recognise those who contribute to the sector, as well as those who have hindered the industry.
People who stood against the digital economy bill, including Bridget Fox, MP Tom Watson and the 38 Degrees Campaign, are up for the Internet Hero award alongside a government website designed to drive innovation and the Zip It, Block It, Flag It campaign.
In contrast, ACS Law, the European Commission, Lord Clement-Jones, Lord Mandelson and the UK parliament have been nominated for the Internet Villain prize.
The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony on July 8th.
Established in 1995, the ISPA is a trade association designed to promote competition, self-regulation and the development of the internet industry.
