UN Report Divided Australian Copyright Outfits

The Australian pro-copyright outfit representing the country’s Recording Industry Association believes that attempts to tackle unauthorized file-sharing shouldn’t involve termination of Internet accounts. At the same time, the country’s Federation Against Copyright Theft claims it should. The disagreement arose in the wake of the recent UN report which called Internet disconnection a violation of basic rights.


It seems that currently the Australia’s entertainment industry is split over Internet disconnection as a tool to address illicit file-sharing. The reason is that the United Nations has published a report calling the measure a definite violation of fundamental rights.

Although the country doesn’t have Internet disconnection enforced, its entertainment industry has been pushing for it for a while now. But today it looks split on the matter: while the music industry is against the practice, the movie industry advocates for it.

A few days ago, the recording industry’s music piracy branch announced that the industry needs to implement some tools to fight unauthorized file-sharing, but specified that such tolls shouldn’t include termination of people’s Internet accounts. The outfit conducts investigative, preventative and educational activities to address music piracy on behalf of more than a hundred record companies. Apart from the organization, the same opinion was expressed by the country’s Content Industry Group, which includes members like Microsoft and Business Software Alliance.

The disagreement was also confirmed by the CEO of the Internet Industry Association, admitting that they have noticed a divide between the industries over the issue of web disconnection. He explained that the prospect of disconnecting citizens from the web has already become a “politically toxic proposal” deterring many copyright owners.

Meanwhile, the film industry didn’t agree that a “three-strikes” regime is a breach of basic rights, because copyright protection itself is a human right. It seems that the industry has forgotten that the primary purpose of copyright legislation is to give authors an incentive to create. Well, if AFACT blames broadband providers for a failed business model, the citizens may be next to the bottom of their list of concerns.
