UK Urged to Introduce Anti-Piracy Measures

UK Urged to Introduce Anti-Piracy Measures

The UK’s government has assigned the Film Policy Review Panel the responsibility to watch over the well being of the country’s movie industry. The Panel issued a statement, suggesting that the authorities should introduce some the anti-piracy measures mentioned in the Digital Economy Act in order to increase the revenues of the entertainment industry.


Under the Digital Economy Act, Ofcom is bound to release a code of practice that is supposed to be followed to the letter by Internet Service Providers to address unauthorized file-sharing. Back in 2010, the outfit did comply and after some difficulties published a draft of the code, but people are still waiting for a finalized version, though it was expected last year. The experts pointed out that the previously announced time for the “graduated response” system to be implemented actually remained the same – 2013.

Meanwhile, last year two of the country’s largest Internet service providers, BT and TalkTalk, managed to obtain an appeal against a High Court ruling saying that the provisions in the DEA weren’t breaching European laws on privacy and electronic communications. Currently, both ISPs are in court, doing their best to overrule the court’s decision.

Today the Film Policy Review Panel disregarded copyright owners’ claims that other measures are necessary to successfully fight sites and streaming services allowing copyright violations. Instead, the Panel pointed at the High Court’s decision to force the ISPs block access to Newzbin, which proves that it’s really possible for copyright owners to apply for an injunction to require broadband providers to block access to specified websites. Finally, the Panel suggested that local providers should behave as their American counterparts if they want to play their full part in fighting copyright violation. In addition, it suggested that the government should go on facilitating the partnership work of content creators, broadband providers and other industry members to address online services that permit or promote copyright violation.

The government has also been urged to consider the movie industry’s concerns if it wants to push forward a new digital copyright exchange and introduce new exceptions to the existing British copyright legislation.

timos avatarThnks again SaM. This is getting silly, all that going to happen is Pirate DVD's or even HDD's and memory sticks made in country's where they will not set these 'codes of conducts' will be smuggled into Europe and America once again making people a small fortune!

No avatarThe problem with these politicians is two fold. 1] they, like all politicians, are bought and sold by large corporations like slaves. the common people, who these laws actually effect, really have no say in the creation of these moronic so-called anti-piracy measures; 2] the average age of a politician is probably 50. they are too old to have even a slight under standing of technology and how people use it, so when a flashy corporate sleaze bag says he's losing money to pirates and the only way to stop it is to force google or your isp to block sites, they're too dumb to know any better.

No avatar"The UK’s government..." "...to watch over the well being of the country’s movie industry"

This would be the very same UK government that axed the UK Film Council in the first month of being in office? Yeah, big fans of the film industry, the Tories.

No avatarIf a film is good enough I watch it in the cinema, or a if a CD or DVD is good enough I buy it. Watching or listening to it first is a good way of ensuring it is worth buying. But what the UK Government is censorship and control over us and over the internet.

They take out millions of legitimate files by millions of legitimate MegaUpload users, to take down some pirate files that continue to be freely available elsewhere. Justice. Liberty and Human Decency seems to be dead in the water in 2012... All because the FBI put on Jack Boots. I thought two world wars had killed this sort of conduct stone dead, or are the FBI secretly planning to bring back gas chambers?

Take away freedoms and before you know it we will have full-scale censorship of the internet. Once the mechanisms are in place, who knows how they will be used in the future. We must protect our internet freedom at all costs. If the FBI and American authorities declare ware on parts of the internet, every free citizen in the Us and around the world must act to defend our freedom and freedom of speech. It's a short walk from censorship to denying any active free speech.

We are talking mind police here, who don't like us even expressing our own thoughts, let alone having freedom of action on the internet. The politicians say one thing when behind the scenes they are trying to dictate almost every aspect of our lives and brainwash us stupid.
