BBC News Online has reported the arrests of six people accused of being high-ranking members of the LulzSec hacking group. According to reports, the men had been turned in by the group’s leader, Hector Xavier Monsegur following his arrest and subsequent guilty plea to a dozen criminal charges in August 2011. It is understood Mr Monsegur then co-operated with the FBI, which led to the latest accusations. The LulzSec leader, who went by the online handle “Sabu”, admitted involvement in a number of cyberattacks made in 2011, including against Sony Pictures Entertainment and Fox Broadcasting Company.

BT and TalkTalk have lost an appeal in which they argued some measures in the Digital Economy Act aimed at tackling online copyright infringement are incompatible with EU law, reports BBC News Online. The measures in the Act will mean internet service providers will have to issue warning letters to alleged illegal copyright infringers before eventually cutting their internet access. The creative industry believes online copyright infringements costs £400m a year in lost turnover.

The Guardian has reported on a final rumour surrounding the impending launch of the third-generation iPad, which is expected to take place later today.

The Guardian believes the technology could have be provided by a start up firm in Finland called Senseg, although the company has declined to comment on whether it is working with Apple.
