RIAA presses the big red easy button: ISPs to start policing copyright JULY 1
Isn't it counterproductive on profits for the ISPs to babysit its users?



...see below....

The country's largest Internet service providers haven't given up on the idea of becoming copyright cops.

Last July, Comcast, Cablevision, Verizon, Time Warner Cable and other bandwidth providers announced that they had agreed to adopt policies designed to discourage customers from illegally downloading music, movies and software. Since then, the ISPs have been very quiet about their antipiracy measures.

But during a panel discussion before a gathering of U.S. publishers here today, Cary Sherman, CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, said most of the participating ISPs are on track to begin implementing the program by July 1.

Supporters say this could become the most effective antipiracy program ever. Since ISPs are the Internet's gatekeepers, the theory is that network providers are in the best position to fight illegal file sharing. CNET broke the news last June that the RIAA and counterparts at the trade group for the big film studios, had managed to get the deal through--with the help of the White House.

Sherman told attendees of the Association of American Publishers' annual meeting that planners had always said that setting up an antipiracy program like this could take a year. He told CNET following his panel that the process isn't as easy as turning on a switch.

"Each ISP has to develop their infrastructure for automating the system," Sherman said. They need this "for establishing the database so they can keep track of repeat infringers, so they know that this is the first notice or the third notice. Every ISP has to do it differently depending on the architecture of its particular network. Some are nearing completion and others are a little further from completion."

SHOULD YOU FEAR THEM?

Those ISPs that have partnered with the music and film sectors have the option of issuing six warnings to a subscriber before moving to the "mitigation" stage. Way down in the press release announcing the agreement is the bit about how the ISPs will hobble the connection speeds of those accused of multiple offenses or completely cut off their Web connection until they stop infringing intellectual property.

The ISPs dread spooking subscribers, or to appear to be spying on them. It's possible the agreement would have never been completed had U.S. President Barack Obama and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who got involved in the negotiations as early as 2007, not pressured both sides to cut a deal.

Cuomo, who was then New York's attorney general, got involved because he believed that it was good for the state for two of the leading industries to get along and help each other, Steve Cohen, Cuomo's chief of staff, told CNET today. Up until that point, the film and music sectors were in attack mode, accusing bandwidth providers of profiting from piracy. Cuomo recognized that a deal that benefited both sides could be reached without lawsuits or any serious government intervention, Cohen said.



But not everyone believes that file sharing has hurt those who create content. Corynne McSherry, an attorney and director of intellectual property issues for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a group that advocates for Internet users and tech companies, notes that scores of musicians have adapted to digital technology and are doing fine.

What is the incentive for ISPs to expend the $$ to do all of this? You know they have to be being paid something... and by someone.

Follow the money.
We become like that to which we are devoted. Choose wisely.

Copy/paste from the other thread:

In the Netherlands we have something similar since last month. Brein (the Dutch equivalent of the RIAA) have forced ISP's through a court ruling to stop customers from accessing the pirate bay.

In effect this has made them 'copyright cops'. The ISP's appealed the court ruling so we have to wait and see how this pans out.

I am still able to access the pirate bay through an alternative set up though. chuckle

Let's hope they also enforce copyrights for all the people producing content from their homes and not a big studio.

It is because the music is so crappy that people believe they don't need to pay for it, so they steal it, is why the reinforcements are being added.

Wait for the new ISPs to come up, where you pay extra for no copy-censoring.

This isnt about movies or music. With the financial, economic and planetary changes set to hit earth, you dont want videos circulating around, do you? Also, weren't the ETs supposed to start landing around this June or July?

The only actors, actresses and musical artists we see now (or ever will see) are the ones who not only play ball with TPTB but were also put in place by TPTB. It is not about the copyright, it is about the control.

Look for a law soon that will make it illegal to broadcast an unsecured wifi signal. Enforcement is easy and it will bring more "jobs"!

I said this in two other threads, and it killed both. I wonder if I am powerful enough to kill a pinned thread?


So where does this stand in regards to illegal search and seizure? Doesn't paying for bandwidth grant the person the right to privacy of whatever is inside that bandwidth? I mean if you rent a storage locker the owner doesn't go rummaging them all everyday just to make sure your not storing anything illegal. This makes about as much sense as a carbon tax. In the end though there is no argument that can win against this type of thing happeneing, because it has nothing to do with copywritten material and everything to do with slowly and gradually asserting control over the general public. The government holds a tyranny over coporate America, and in return for favors, the coporations hold a tyranny over the people. Keeping the illusion of living in a democracy by the people and for the people. Thus far it hasn't appeared to be that difficult.

The only two factors seem to be, how slowly must the dominance be asserted so that people adapt to it smoothly, and how much ipods and smartphones do we have to invent to keep people distracted? It's not just those phones and ipods, it's all devices and services that are advertized. If you do a very little amount of googling you will find that Sigmund Frued's nephew Edward Bernays is remembered as the "Father of Public Relations". Facinated by how warp and mold public opinion. Bernays felt that the public's democratic judgment was "not to be relied upon" and he feared that "they [the American public] could very easily vote for the wrong man or want the wrong thing, so that they had to be guided from above".

If there is any hope at all for actual freedom, we must all relearn how to think for ourselves. As well as decide for ourselves what is best for us, and be willing to accept any and all consequences.

The truth is what they are doing is not legal at all. That is why they make you sign a consent form. Then once you're percieved to be doing something that may or may not be illegal, they have an "education program". All that is, is you agreeing to let anyone who wants to view all personal information coming to, or leaving your computer. As well as admitting wrongdoing without seeing evidence of what your admitting to.

They couldnt pass SOPA to blanket every person, so now they are trying to get each individual to consent to it.
