UK Won’t Let Pirates Appeal

Lacking effective ways of stopping or slowing down digital piracy, the government of the United Kingdom is going to restrict the grounds for appeal for unauthorized file-sharers. The entire process is currently under development and governed by Ofcom, a regulator which is responsible for creating the code for the Internet copyright appeals process.

DCMS_logo_104.jpg


The Digital Economy Act reads that Ofcom is responsible for establishing the independent appeals body used by suspected pirates. An earlier version of Ofcom’s Internet copyright violation appeals process included a general view upon the right to appeal. However, it appeared that the grounds mentioned in the Act were non-exhaustive, so Ofcom reflected this in its drafted Code, including a provision to appeal on “any other reasonable ground”.

The country’s Department of Culture, Media and Sports asked Ofcom to delete this provision, but it is still not clear what “any reasonable ground” really means, though Ofcom or the Department of Culture, Media and Sports are able to easily remove the shroud of mystery. At the same time, an Ofcom spokesperson refused to comment other than confirming that the Government has asked to delete something that had been added to the Code.

It seems that Ofcom is hoping to avoid future extended revisions of the code, and that’s why this provision was added according to their opinion on technology and consumer behavior development. Still, no one confirmed if the provision will be put back in. The government body claimed they were still examining the code and wouldn’t speculate on what would be in its final version.

The Digital Economy Act stipulates that copyright owners would have the right to report any suspected pirate to his Internet service provider which has to eventually send notifications to the user. Meanwhile, a record of this information must be kept by the broadband providers. Offenders who continue their unauthorized activities run the risk to have their Internet connection suspended.

The suspected pirate is able to appeal, but it would cost him around $30, thanks to Culture Minister’s decision in August. However, if the defendant wins the case, this money will be refunded. Culture Minister explained that this provision will force people to make less “frivolous” appeals.

No avatarInstead of trying to prevent "frivolous" appeals, maybe Mekon-headed Cameron and his millionaire pals should concentrate on stopping politicians making frivolous expense claims.

Oh, I get it - copying something without paying is stealing, but spending money that isn't yours isn't stealing! Welcome to modern-day Britain, where 'up' is 'down'.

danny226 avatar@livensflame i hope your a uk resident mate, not some yank having a go

if you use p2p in moderation then they arn't going to persue you, there after the people who are upping the latest releases donsistantly, therefore if you've downloaded the file from someone else, there would be little ground for them to prosocure you as you could simply state that you were "evaluating" haha

Cheers for the info SaM

really MIND BOGGLING. suspected infriNgners HAVE TO APPEAL AND PAY MONEY TO APPEAL SO IT ISN'T frivolous? BS..
But again the Brits Legal system is setup that an accused is guilty until proven innocent.

"But again the Brits Legal system is setup that an accused is guilty until proven innocent."

See, that's an example of a Yank having a go (and not having a clue about the subject he's talking about, into the bargain).

TrojanMouse avatar@livensflame,

You forget, the government (and this is not just in the UK) is allowed to do what it wants, similarly, we are only allowed to do what *they* want too...

Their expenses claims were 'justified' because they are 'serving the people', the people are only (as far as the government is concerned) serving themselves.

D4T4 avatarAnd then again the European Court of Human Rights will knock this idea on the head. Sometimes we forget who actually rules Great Britain, it's the second rate politicians of Brussels and not the elected pals of Cameron. Thanks Sam.

No avatarObviously haven't heard that the UN and the EU regard disconnecting internet as a totally serious and very severe breach of human rights.

As for appeals, ANY shared connection is IMMEDIATELY guaranteed to succeed as they cannot prove who has used the connection.

However, avoid this in the first place and if you are with Orange, Talk Talk, Virgin or BT, Google 'change DNS server' and choose non-UK eg US DNS servers and follow the instructions. Takes 2 minutes and thenceforth your ISP cannot in any way pry into your downloading! they might deduce that you are P2P downloading and slow your connection (as they might in ordinary P2P usage), but they CANNOT then identify the traffic.

If you set your connection as a Tor exit relay as part of a virtual tunnel, they can't touch you as they then CANNOT prove where the originating traffic has come from or where it went! Your IP is then acting as an anonymous relay for internet traffic and the Tor network acts as a virtual tunnel and is designed to prevent users IPs being traced. If you have a high usage or unlimited use broadband connection, Google 'tor exit relay' and set one up! if your ISP or anyone else including the DCMA and similar cronies try to pursue you, just send details of your exit relay to them and tell them to lay off or you'll get the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) to pursue THEM!

No avatarPS I hadn't heard of www.newzbin.com/ until BT was ordered to block access to the site for those using BT as their ISP. So in fact the court action was merely ADVERTISING newzbin to all other UK internet users! called shooting themselves in the foot, isn't it!

And of course BT ISP users can either use anonymous proxy sites, or reset their DNS setting to eg using Google DNS servers and hence avoid BTs ban in any case!

D4T4 avatarOne thing I really like about Extra Torrent is the friendly family atmosphere, and then there's always one who tries to spit his dummy out, Ok menahunie, or should I say Dan, if an avatar says it all how come you've got a face like a slapped ar$e but an avatar of something from Brokeback Mountain. Wanna see the face of the Phallus that is menahunie? Copy and paste http://www.cebuanas.com/gallery/profile.php?id=menahunie&h=1
