The problem of unauthorized file-sharing online by means of BitTorrent has brought together the entertainment and telecommunication industries for another closed door meeting with Federal Government participating.
The goal of the first meeting, which was held by the Attorney-General’s Department five months ago, was to encourage the intermediaries, including major US Internet service providers and representatives of the movie, TV and music industries, to find a viable solution on the problem of online copyright violation.
A week ago, the Department had held another meeting on this problem, but it still hadn’t communicated the topics discussed there to the press. Most of the entities that participated at the September meeting were the representatives of the entertainment industries. There were also local Internet service providers, including Telstra, Optus, the Communications Alliance, and the Internet Industry Association. Ericsson also attended the meeting as a networking vendor.
Meanwhile, the paper trail from the second meeting on the problem pointed to efforts by the Attorney-General’s Department to conceal the discussion of the so-called “6-strikes” policy. The latter aimed at eliminating copyright violation on the Internet established between the entertainment industry and ISPs in the United States this year.
The agreement in question had the largest American broadband providers like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, and Time Warner Cable forward copyright violation notifications from copyright holders to suspected online pirates. After a few such notices, Internet service providers have acceded to enforce punitive measures like temporary reductions in connection speeds or redirections to various pages.
Already introduced in a number of countries (like New Zealand and France), the so-called “three-strikes” regime has been regarded as a potential solution to the problem of digital piracy. Although thus far, the broadband industry has been reluctant to introduce a regime of this kind in Australia, a number of the country’s ISPs have already implemented another system: one ISP there is entitled to redirect subscribers to another provider once receiving a certain number of complaints.

|They been trying this for years to get the broadband providers to police it's subscribers with the “3-strikes” policy and it never works. of course the broadband industry has been reluctant to this because of the money they would lose. There's many other ways to get around file-sharing than using torrents. The only way to stop piracy is to shut the whole internet down. Plus file-sharing is getting high tech now.|

I know I am preaching to the choir here; BUT the key word here is SUSPECTED, NOT PROVED..
They take action against SUSPECTED and I can put money in the bank these SUSPECTED should and would file law suits against these people.
That is like I am put in prison for a SUSPECTED crime; NOT proved crime..
The real issue here is all about control under the guise of SUSPECTED copyright violations.
From other articles and what is out there on the net this is proven many times over. They stomp on and use corrupt politician with distorted and out right false claims of lost revenue. The RIAA and MPAA an other have never ever provide hard documentation to prove their claims of lost billions..
The RIAA and MPAA cry that all of the thousands of AMERICANS who lose their jobs because of claimed piracy?
Really? When a majority of ALL Films are produced and filmed in other countries than America because it is Cheaper..
The outdated and archaic distribution methods these people hang onto is dead and they refused to use a better business model - oh I forgot they do its called extortion, threaten to suit a SUSPECTED and tell them to pay x thousands and we won't sue you; that has not worked out the way they hoped.
The internet is evolving faster than these greedy bastards can keep up and some I see the time where NO DNS Servers will be needed. There is even a torrent software out now that doesn't need a torrent site like ET for transferring and finding files.
I use netflix for 8.00 per month to watch thousands of movies. Most of them are crap but at that price it is cheap crap. If the MPAA used a format like that and users paid a reasonable price to watch their crap they call entertainment; I believe their complaint of piracy would diminish; but I don't count on it.
The broadband Industry is being bullied into doing the RIAA and MPAA job because they realize the billions it will cost them to find and prove their complaints. If I was a broadband Company and received a DCMA complaint I would respond back to the complainant to provide legal documentation of who they are and prove they are either the copyright holder or legal agent for that copyright holder. I would also require the complainant to provide the actual file they are filing the complaint about. This is what you or I are required to do in any legal case; yet these people RIAA and MPAA have somehow been obtaining judgements in the millions without meeting this burden of prove; except in a very very few cases out of the tens of thousands filed.

|what ever solution they come up with end problem is isp providers wont like losing customers|
the entertainment industry's cant cover these losses
making silly solutions like 3 strikes and they cut you off they will just go to another company
worst result fine/prison another loss to the isp,tax payers
dont know why they dont just leave everyone be
no one wins in this cutting of piracy isn't the solution people that want to pay for movies will people that want to pay for pay tv will just like they always have you would think the all governments would have learned by now that greed doesn't fix anything
Australia the country that is apparently independent hangs of Americas balls next they will change they way the water flows to match the America
America say let go to war and kill all Australians and British follow them just so America can acknowledge there existence America is good at making some country's look like jokes

|Good point you make @menahunie.|
Other reason it won't work for cable individuals subscribers is because anyone can snoop a IP address. It simply won't work trying to get the broadband providers to police it's millions of subscribers. Than there is the legal issues, violation rights. The good thing, there's many other ways to bypass file-sharing torrents and open sites for someone who have a little computer tech skills.

|Thanks SaM for following up, problem here for internet service providers is they would be daft to agree with such laws. They would go broke M8 there would be no sense in even subscribing to the internet if your privacy is being monitored|

|Everyone needs to calm down... All this is merely a show of bravado by the relevant parties... They have to do this because they're being made to by the higher authorities in your country. Piracy can never be stopped. I live in the U.K... and we are backwards as far as I.T goes, yet I do not struggle to get anything i want over the net... Sit back and let all the idiots walk through their show of authority... Guaranteed they'll be bored of it in a short while and things will get back to normal. Anyone struggling to download anything at all can inbox me and i will direct them to the best place to get it... Gld...||
