UN Experts Called “Three-Strikes” a Violation of Basic Rights

Special Rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression for the United Nations, Frank La Rue, has submitted a report saying that disconnecting Internet subscribers, despite of the justification provided, is actually an infringement of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, since it limits the type of media people can legitimately use to express themselves.


Now it seems that the United Kingdom and France have to explain their copyright laws to the UN Special Rapporteur Frank La Rue, who has already submitted a report to the Human Rights Council, claiming that disconnection from the worldwide web is a violation of fundamental rights just because it illicitly restricts the type of media people may use to express themselves.

The report presented by the expert explored methods to promote and protect the right of freedom and expression, especially “key trends and challenges to the right of all people to obtain data and ideas through the web.

The report views the unique nature of the Internet as a tool for people to exercise their right to freedom of opinion and expression, as well as some other human rights, plus as a way to promote the progress of entire society. Considering this, La Rue is alarmed by suggestions to disconnect users from the web for copyright infringement, saying that people should never have their access to the web terminated for any reason, which includes copyright law violation. Countries accepting such methods are violating the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Although many countries are implementing the means to block and filter specific online content, some of them have already taken measures to cut off access to the web entirely, which is considered disproportionate and a violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The latter specifies that every individual has the right to freedom of expression in any type of media, which makes it impossible for the governments to dictate what types of media people can use to express themselves. Indeed, it’s hard to argue with the report: the web is not just about e-mail and YouTube, it also provides people with the latest news, politics, business, art, history, educational materials, and so on.

The report should alarm France and the United Kingdom, which have already implemented a “three-strikes” regime, regardless of the fact that neither country has managed to disconnect at least one Internet user for copyright infringement.

fusseltier avatarthank god there are some people with some sense.
and considering how much the french hate americans, i couldnt believe they would want a 3 strikes law, maybe they should have a 3 surrender law or 3 wars lost, or some loser law that fits the french better.

julio99 avatarJust love these comments and Don's avatar,(can't forget that), but really, it's only get worse here in Canada now that the PC's got a majority and our PM is a yes man for the Yanks. I can see a similar law coming down the pipe pretty soon if not sooner.

Tando avatarLol this is a stupid law anyways like it said no one in the UK has even been disconected yet and i doubt very much anyone will because there are so many different reason to get away with it one being that someone else was using my internet in my house or outside

And @Jumbo71 Downloaders do kinda hurt people(only the rich but they can afford it ) because less people go to the cinema, watch TV, buy DVD/CD's which causes TV shows to be cancled from lack of viewers and movies not to make a sequal because no one spent money to go to the cinema to see it just downloaded it for free.

No avatarThe French where our greatest allies way back when, they also helped us to create America. Read your history fellow Americans. Also, props to the UN for stepping up and pretty much telling them no.
