What the Entertainment Industry Really Wants to Do to the Internet
CoCo blog has what European Digital Rights says is the wish list by the
European international versions of the MPAA and RIAA (the MPA and IFPI) for Internet service providers: Movie & Music Industry Proposals ISP Self-Regulation. Evidently, they want ISPs to:
- "remove references and links to sites or services that do not respect the copyrights of rights holders"
- "require subscribers to consent in advance to the disclosure of their identity in response to a reasonable complaint of intellectual property infringement by an established right holder defence organisation or by right holder(s) whose intellectual property is being infringed"
- terminate contracts of recidivist
- implement instant messaging to communicate with infringers
- implement filtering technologies to block sites that are "substantially dedicated to illegal file sharing or download services"
- voluntarily store data for copyright enforcement
Did I say "wish list"? Sorry; that would be "hit list."
