US Chamber of Commerce Proved Need for Internet Filtering

US Chamber of Commerce Proved Need for Internet Filtering

US Chamber of Commerce claimed that cyberlockers like RapidShare represent over 20 billion visits to “digital piracy” websites annually, which proves that such services are profiting “at the expense” of the US creative industries. The conclusion is: the US government desperately needs to enact the COICA legislation to address the “problem.”


Quite an unexpected conclusion the US Chamber of Commerce recently made, taking an entirely meaningless traffic study revealing over 50 billion visits to “digital piracy” websites annually, and claiming that this figure “exposes the staggering scope” of unauthorized file-sharing.

Anti-fraud firm called MarkMonitor was hired to identify a sample of rogue websites responsible for “trafficking counterfeit and pirated goods”. The action was done to illustrate the nature of this illegal ecosystem and determine its scope.

MarkMonitor used publicly-available traffic information from Alexa to rank the number of visits to each website and then made a list of the worst offenders in digital piracy. The results were the following: the 10 media brands yielded 43 unique websites marked as “digital piracy”. Traffic generated to these services exceeded 145 million visits daily, making it over 50 billion visits annually.

The study says that Megavideo, RapidShare, and Megaupload were the top 3 “digital piracy” sites that collectively generated over 20 billion visits a year. However, no-one can explain what it really means. It is unclear which part of those visits to the websites was legal or illegal, as the number varied further by country. For example, non-commercial file-sharing is absolutely legal in Spain, but prohibited in the United States.

In short, the US Chamber of Commerce was trying to use this study to display “rampant traffic of digital counterfeiting and piracy.” The entire purpose of the study is admitted to be a call to arms to approve the controversial COICA legislation, and the US Chamber of Commerce says that the MarkMonitor study underscored the urgency of enacting proactive policies to close down those “rogue sites”. It has even called the proposal a “major step forward for protecting US jobs”, while going on ignoring the fact that the new law will never stop consumers from visiting such services any more that it will magically create new revenue for the US economy.

No avatarmaybe it's time we realize that there's power in numbers and not in well financed political lobbies... we should be looking at these numbers as hopeful, but the majority of us in the torrent community probably don't vote.

I'm also going to venture a guess that nobody in america has campaigned on the issue, not even hinting to the public which direction they would go should it come up for a vote... this is how i know we're not voting in numbers, they don't address the issue on the proper platform because their "general base" doesn't give a shit..

remember this when you download the next TV torrent that was on during election time, because there were those damned campaign ads running ad nauseam

Brynn217 avatarOk.. Here is the thing, about a month ago I was up at Capitol Hill, I was there to help Lobby for the Unemployement Extensions... While I there I visited My Senator's Offices, I aaked the aids for Both Barabra Mikulski and Ben Cardin, both very big in this world (and my reps from the State of Maryland), I did ask for info about COICA.... At this time, its not even in their view as a bill that is passable. I filled them in on what it was about and what the agenda was on this bill and they assured me they would watch out for our freedoms and it was not in the best interest of Congress to allow any bill to restrict the access that we currently enjoy with the internet. Barb's people in particular were concerned that the Bill actually invades the rights of privacy as well as allows accusations against innocent people of illegally downloading without benefit of a trial or conviction.

Never Be afriad to talk to your Representatives or their Aides... Keep them informed! Asked the right questions.. They work for US.

No avatarYeah for Rapidshare and MegaUpload and many others. They DO takedown all notified infringement, and YES, very rightly, it is (as it should be) up to the copyright holders to issue takedown notices.


Quite incidentally, neither upload service offer a search engine. OTHER SITES may infringe copyright by directing users to not yet taken down content. RapidShare and MegaUpload IMMEDIATELY remove material identified by the copyright owners as infirnging material.

Good luck to any potential legal action against COMPLETELY LEGAL OPERATIONS!!!!!!!

As for Internet filtering - all present US internet traffic, which is most will be flagged as UNSAFE by all non US servers, leading to a huge slowdown across the Internet, slowing down US traffic too. This would last for some years until non-US servers and cables are all upgraded. So two fingers... to the US on Internet filtering F*** O** LEAVE OUR INTERNET ALONE
