IFPI Co-Operated With PayPal to Fight Online Piracy

IFPI Co-Operated With PayPal to Fight Online Piracy

The IFPI has finally announced that PayPal agreed to cooperate with multinational companies. The only suspicion that remains is that it’s a bit too late for this move to have any effect on piracy.

Back in 2010, copyright owners managed to push organizations like MasterCard to cut off payments made to infringing sites. At the same time, many websites felt that they could appear the target of this so-called “corporate sponsored censorship”, and therefore had to make some preparations to alter their methods of payments in order to evade detection. The pirate sites could do the same as well, though. Later, according to some reports, PayPal cut off payments to Wikileaks, which means that the service began stopping payments to customers when others demanded it almost a year ago.

Today the IFPI issued a press release, saying that PayPal has agreed to cut off online services which were accused of copyright infringement. Frances Moore, CEO of IFPI, representing the recording industry all over the world, said everyone knew that if unauthorized online music services couldn’t take payment from credit cards any longer, they would try to switch to some other services, including PayPal. That was the reason why IFPI and the City of London Police suggested PayPal to co-operate, and the service responded immediately and positively.

The only problem that remains is that lots of websites that might become a target have already taken steps to avoid detection when using PayPal services. For example, a number of sites have asked their users to indicate the payment details as “club membership fees” or something like that. The other websites are using PayPal accounts indicating no sign of it being connected to the infringing site at all. Finally, the rest of the services simply gave up with the idea of using PayPal methods and simply switched to other services like Flatr and Bitcoin.

In other words, services engaged in copyright infringing activities most likely anticipated efforts like this and planned accordingly. This means that the move in question would really affect only the unprepared websites if only all the targets are chosen accurately in the first place. Actually, this effort would be great news for PayPal competitors, as they now may offer all the websites to move away from PayPal to their services to avoid detection – whether they are illegal or not, just in case. So, the only party losing out in a deal is PayPal.
