EU Opposed “Three-Strikes”

EU Opposed “Three-Strikes”

The OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe), the largest security intergovernmental outfit in the world, has issued a report explicitly stating that a “three-strikes” policy is clearly a disproportionate response to addressing copyright infringement.

OSCE wasn’t the first organization to state this fact – back in June, the UN’s Special Rapporteur also claimed the same in his report, calling “graduated response system” a violation of human rights. The OSCE followed the UN, publishing a paper listing freedom of speech on the web and legislation that impacted such freedoms. The emerging of so-called “three-strikes” regimes throughout the world was particularly stressed.

OSCE revealed that the increased use of so-called “three-strikes” measures to fight online piracy is quite worrisome, considering the growing importance of the web in people’s daily life. A “graduated response” results in restricting or cutting off the subscribers’ access to the web if they have tried to download illegal content. The last (third) strike normally leads to the disconnection from the Internet, which is considered by OSCE as a disproportionate response and incompatible with EU commitment on the freedom. Meanwhile, in the Charter for European Security, the EU members reaffirmed the importance of free flow of data and the access of people to data. Back in 1999 the participating states agreed that any interference with that basic human right must be motivated by a pressing social need, proportionate to the legitimate aim pursued. OSCE insists that access to the Internet must be recognized as a human right, which means that “graduated response” scheme should be avoided by the EU members. Indeed, participating states can’t have free speech and a “three-strikes” regime in place at the same time.

The industry observers point to one interesting fact regarding this finding – France, which has a “three-strikes” policy enforced, is also a member of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. Another country they point at is the US, which has been pushing the others to introduce controversial copyright legislation.

It still has to be seen whether countries will pay attention to the report or keep pushing for legislation violating human rights. Meanwhile, the United States has already sacrificed their national security in favor of a “six-strikes” agreement.

D4T4 avatarUse Peerblock to block the US completely. US P2P sharers can then use a VPN in another country which is advisable anyway. The US government will then think it has won and call the dogs off. Simples peeps.
