Once again, lawmakers from the Senate and House Judiciary Committees promised to pass the controversial COICA legislation in order to “protect US jobs”, warning reporters on Capitol Hill a few days ago about the harm posed to the local economy by an access to copyright violating material and counterfeit goods online. The representatives claimed that those illegal activities cost to the economy over $100 billion each year.

While the lawmakers keep insisting that digital theft is unacceptable at any time, they fail to understand some basic facts about the modern digital community. First of all, the myth of $100 billion dollars annually arises from the padded figures about lost sales claimed by the creative industry. The latter, in its turn, sticks to the notion of one unauthorized download equals one lost sale. However, when the Government Accountability Office was tasked with assessing the impacts of pirated products on the country’s economy, it admitted that there was no way to evaluate a true net effect, because the effects of the file-sharing are not as simple as lost sales, and it even has positive effects sometimes, especially for consumers.

Then, there’s another illusion of the Congress that preventing American consumers from accessing websites engaged in illegal downloading will help save jobs and grow the economy. However, preventing people from accessing them will only shift the expenditures from some other industry to the creative one.

Senator Ron Wyden was one of the first people criticizing the manner in which entertainment industry has managed to “piggyback” on the concerns of other industries related to trading in physical goods. He was joined by other observers, pointing out that the proposed copyright law would just place unconstitutional prior restraints on speech without proper due process. Nevertheless, it seems like some Congressmen are very determined to push this legislation through.

No avatarPeople have been sharing what they like with their family and friends for centuries. These companies who produce forms of art were aware of that fact before they agreed to use digital media. They knew that a new technology brings inherent risks but they chose to switch to new forms of product delivery at such early stages in development anyway, now its the consumer's fault for having better ways to share. Maybe these massive corporations who have employed many foreign workers and have moved jobs away from North America should compensate the movie and music industry in apology for destroying the middle class, of whom these production companies and artists used to rely on.
