40 Countries Rise Against “Three-Strikes” Regime

40 Countries Rise Against “Three-Strikes” Regime

Within the past month, the United Nations has issued a report over the British copyright legislation where it has been very critical about some clauses of the country’s Digital Economy Act. The clauses in question related to penalties against unauthorized file-sharing, which were considered a “violation of UK citizens’ basic rights”, as well as a breach of international law.


After the report was published, forty different countries throughout the world came to support it. The list includes the USA, Japan, Canada, Sweden, Brazil, India, and Poland. The parties have even signed a statement condemning the “three-strikes” regime and proposing both network neutrality and web openness as vital objectives. This statement should worry countries like the UK and France, since they have already enforced the controversial copyright legislation.

The signed statement is reported to claim that all Internet users should have greatest possible access to web-located content, programs and services. Therefore, cutting off users from access to the web can’t be a proportionate sanction.

By the way, it was quite a surprise for many that New Zealand was also found out in the list of countries that signed the statement – actually, it recently adopted the “three-strikes” system, too! Perhaps, the country’s government needs a hint that they can’t have it both ways.

Another country that has joint the opposition is Sweden, not long ago the battlefield of the largest file-sharing case of the world’s biggest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay. Sweden, when taking the initiative of the UN’s report, told the Human Rights Council that any restrictions on Internet-based material can only be acceptable in a few exceptional and limited circumstances. It also believes that Internet shutdowns like those in Egypt violate the right to freedom of expression.

Another clause of the controversial copyright legislation that didn’t go disregarded in the statement related to the negative effects caused by holding Internet service providers responsible for copyright violation. When the report of the United Nations brought sound arguments to specify the dangers coming from such practices, the signed statement managed to reinforce them, claiming that the governments worldwide shouldn’t mandate more restrictive rules for such intermediaries than with traditional media.

menace13 avatarThat is a completely diff 3 strikes. I like that the US is against the (digital) 3 strikes but I wonder what changed their minds. My friend got his first strike warning for dl like 3 years or so. Nice turn around

bluepeas avatarWith the economy the way it is here in the U.S, we've seen more & more businesses shutting down (both my BlockBusters & 3 Hollywood Video stores r now gone) ..so I see torrent sites & file sharing as free advertisement for Hollywood and the music industry. The government is NOT STUPID they know this!

bluepeas avatar@julio99 ..I'm sry to hear that. It was just another way to fill up Cali's prisons & fatten the pockets for politicians and rich business men ..and open more jobs for CCPOA (one of the most powerful unions in the state). Many courts have stopped applying the 2 & 3-strike law ..so thats a good thing.

No avatarWorse than that the EXTREMELY STUPID 3 strikes legislation only targets subscribers to the three largest ISPs in the UK, making it also EXTREMELY DISCRIMINATORY.

Given the United Nations report, I can't see any ISP enforcing it, let alone ANY UK court upholding such action.

I expect France and the UK to VERY quickly legislate to remove the 3 strikes rules completely from their statute books!

EX avatarit was quite a surprise for many that New Zealand was also found out in the list of countries that signed the statement – actually, it recently adopted the “three-strikes” system, too!..... that because the prime minister has his own personal agenda to privatisation and selling off state assets and whatever he could get his hands on, some may not know, but the NZ Govt. made a law in NZ, sealing a deal with Warner bros over the hobbit movie to be filmed in NZ, escorted the Warner bro heads around NZ in a Govt. limo the tax payers forked out for, the Mp of course brushing it off as it is nothing. John Key the fail Prime Minister, but he live up to his reputation as a brown nose.

daveindanorth avatarJust one little correction.... Canada is NOT a country. It is a colony of the UK. Our head of state is the viceroy (governor general) of an absentee landlord (QE II). Cheers
