UK MPAA Pressuring ISPs to Block File-Sharing Services

UK MPAA Pressuring ISPs to Block File-Sharing Services

Recently, BT – one of the largest broadband providers in the country – has been forced to block the famous file-sharing site Newzbin2. However, the story doesn’t seem to be coming to an end with the court ruling: while the service keeps struggling by developing more and more way to circumvent the ban, two other UK’s Internet service providers, Virgin Media and TalkTalk, feel the pressure from the UK’s Motion Picture Association to block the news site as well.


Just a week ago MPA, a large movie industry watchdog, has sent TalkTalk and Virgin Media letters saying that the outfit would obtain the court orders demanding to impose the block and asked such an order would be opposed in some way, according to the local media reports.

As for the recipients of the letters, both of the Internet service providers admitted that they will comply to such blocking order if the court rules so. In the interview regarding this issue, Virgin Media explained that the company believed such deterrents should be accompanied by really compelling legal alternatives, like their agreement with the largest online streaming service Spotify that provided their consumers access to the copyrighted material at the reasonable price. As for TalkTalk, this broadband provider was noticed to fight against the introduction of the UK’s copyright legislation (Digital Economy Act), which imposed very strict anti-piracy rules.

This decision followed the story of the BPI (the British Phonographic Industry) demanding BT to prevent its subscribers from accessing the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay, pointing at the Newzbin2 ruling as a precedent.

mork_blasphemy avatarI would make a deal with Virgin,I will stop file sharing if they stop using the internet to obtain massive fortunes every single day!!Or they just want the good things?Nothing in life is all good or all bad...So why don't they just live with it,File sharing is freedom of information exchange that means the same as freedom of speech and we still have that!!

bigcow2k avatarneglecting things that matters most, while making a hell of a fuss over matters that are small or near-negligible - that's one of the few laughable things that defines britian. it's all thanks to the barmy laws laid down by the labour gov over the years. Even now, the coalition gov isn't helping much either. Long live Great "LMFAO" Britian

Trugger avatarIt seems they don't understand that they're not going to actually get people to buy more retail dvd's and therefore stimulate the economy.

In reality we're going to buy vpn's, seedbox's and other technology from services outside our borders. So we're stimulating economy, just not our own.

I did recently purchase a game, $54.95, I cringed at the register. But I had tried the pirate vers. 1st and decided I wanted full internet function. Had it not been for file sharing, I wouldn't have bought their product.

fusseltier avatareven charging 99 cents for a song, the record companies are making more money per cd than a real cd cost, and they have none of the manufacturing or distribution costs.
if they want file sharing to stop, then the cable companies can't use adsl for delivering your movies either, since the isp's want to cap peoples usage too.
they (music and movie) make more profits than they let people know, even with file sharing and for low quality productions that no one would want to pay money for anyway.
they are the thieves, always trying to rip of the public with garbage music and movies then crying they lose money because of file sharing when its their own fault for having no talent acts and writers.
and like Trugger said, many people buy after trying the pirated versions anyway.
its just one way for people to try before buy, like old shareware games were.
but the biggest problem are the english speaking countries since corporations have more rights than the people... you can't count france, they are too confused to know what they are actually doing, as much as they hate americans and english language terms, they use three strikes... they even made a law a few years ago prohibiting the use of the term email, they have to use comunique electronique or however its spelled... but they suffer from an inferioirity complex and are trying to save their dying useless language.

No avatarDear Jumbo71 - you do understand how a library works don't you? Authors receive a small sum per book borrowed up to a maximum amount per annum. Look things like this up before you post your rant.

By the way I have never heard of a single author ever saying a bad thing about the library service. Judging from the quality of the English in your post you could do with a few visits to a library yourself.

A last point - people like you are the reason I am embarassed to be British.

No avatarI would bar and ban governments from trying to interfere with the P2P side of the internet in any way. P2P gives third world countries (including the very poor in Britain) access to cultural material they simply can't and could never afford.

I would have no qualms about the entire internet getting its act together and blocking pre-adolescent pedophile material and bestiality, and bomb-making/extreme violence sites. But P2P harms no-one!

Stupid restrictions, easy to get around, use non UK DNS servers or if need be anonymous proxies. Change ISP, they will soon get the message that complying with stupid UK laws will cost them mega-bucks in lost income. Newzbin2 proves ISPs CANNOT successfully block sites in any case!

menahunie avatarThe thing being missed is they are going after the ISP's.
The ISP's are like a telephone company;customers us that service to commit crimes; but you don't see governments demanding the telephone companies filter customers conversations because a percentage use the telephone to commit crimes?
That is the same as going after an auto maker to some how restrict sales of their product because of it being used in crimes - robberies, hit and runs, etc..
Many torrent users are if smart using TOR networks to do their torrents.
If they can not understand that what they are doing will not work all you have to do is look at countries that censor internet access - Mid East countries, China and more.
