Aussie ISP Proposes to Treat Piracy as “Traffic Offenses”

In 2008 the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft filed its first lawsuit against Aussie ISP iiNet, stating that iiNet did not manage to undertake any measures to stop their network customers’ unlawful file-sharing. The Internet Service Provider succeeded in the first court trial and the trial’s verdict was upheld on the AFACT appeal.

Recently, iiNet has offered a number of rational ways out of this controversial situation, which were published in its report “Encouraging Legitimate Use of Online Content”. The company underlines the importance of diversifying legal options applied to the pirated content. According to the report, limiting the content accessibility is unreasonable, especially if it is much sought after by the network users. Meanwhile, the number of unsatisfied users keeps growing. They allege that they do not have any other choice but to turn to piracy simply because of the copyright holders’ inability to provide them with reasonable legal options. It is ridiculous that Australian residents cannot enjoy their beloved movies or TV shows until they show up in the US. As a result, the growing public demand is not satisfied.

As far as the above mentioned problem needs serious consideration, iiNet offers the following legal solutions. First, it is required to organize an independent body, the implementation of which into the process will enable to consider all the raised infringement claims as well as complaints of the network customers, access providers and content holders. Second, iiNet suggests making up a special copyright infringement penalty scheme, similar to that applied for traffic offenses.

For example, if traffic offense happens only once, the person will be fined or get demerit points. In case the offender keeps overlooking traffic regulations, demerit points will be accumulated, which may eventually result in the offender’s driving license suspension. In accordance with the iiNet’s report, the same penalty scheme should be applied to copyright infringements as well.

It is emphasized that just as even the most serious traffic offenses caused by speeding never result in complete prohibition to use different means of transport, copyright infringement should never end up with Internet termination. Here everything should depend on the gravity of copyright infringement. The more serious the infringer’s fault is, the more severe penalty should be imposed. Thus, copyright infringements may be subdivided into minor, major and serious, depending on the seriousness of the infringer’s fault, starting with fines and demerit points that will range according to the ISP’s financial loss related to the copyright infringement and up to the involvement of the infringer’s treatment fees set by the court.

menahunie avatarI know Foster is like P-ss in a can; but this reads like a DUI...LMFAO Traffic Fines? On non proved offenses???
WOW Officer Dik I really wasn't driving; my computer was borrowed by my dog and he was the one doing the offenses...
Suing a manufacturer or a provider for what a client does is dangerous and stupid third party law suits. If and of this shyte sticks to the wall being foisted on everybody that would mean if some one peed over a railing and rained on someone you don't go after the moron who made yellow rain; but go after the beer manufacturer because they couldn't stop the moron drinker from again making yellow rain on someone. Sounds stupid and it is; but this sets a very dangerous precedence..

Hound1 avatarThe Government can take what it likes, they will never take my freedom. I only abide by the law whilst the law is reasonable, when it's not, it's ignored. Australia has become the socialist mecca of the pacific.
