Search giant Google, in co-operation with PRS for Music, has carried out a study titled “The 6 Business Models For Copyright Infringement”. So, what did they find out?
The report revealed that a key source of revenues for the services “believed by the largest copyright owners to be massively facilitating copyright violation” is advertising. However, this will surely start a heated debate instead of calming things down.
The study was based on a research made by Detica and the information offered by the Premier League, FACT, UKIE and The Publishers Associations. The report classifies piracy portals into six groups: live TV gateways, embedded streaming, peer-to-peer groups, music transaction, subscription groups, and rewarded freemium.
Meanwhile, there are a couple of interesting discoveries about the music sector. One of them emphasizes the importance of advertising (funding 86% of P2P community portals). Another one reveals the importance of search engines for music transaction services, which means that their users usually find out about the portal through a search engine.
The study in question indicates that there are a lot of various business models for Internet infringement that can be tackled if the industries co-operate. The collected evidence suggests that one of the most efficient ways to do so is to follow the money, looking for those advertisers who prefer to earn money from such services and working with payment providers in order to make sure they realize how their services are used.
The head of the PRS for Music hopes the result of the study will reach the government of the United Kingdom and other countries. He says that the portals involved in copyright violation are mainly businesses with real costs and revenue sources, which receive subscription and advertising revenue. On the other hand, those services have to pay their server or hosting costs. The only problem is that they don’t pay the creators of the material on which their businesses depend.
As you can see, the business models of the copyright infringers are different, and the authorities now have the evidence to realize which policy levers they need to apply to solve the problem of piracy and deal with those strategies efficiently.

|The business models of worldwide sharing, stopping disease, starvation and war are of course completely different from the capitalist model of letting the poor starve or die, stopping access of the very poor to medical and dental treatment, providing both sides at cost with arms and having the few live in total luxury while the majority do without. Sharing completely has to do with dropping the use and notion of the very great evil called MONEY. It may yet happen. If sunspot activity disrupts electronic communication and particularly electronic money transfer systems, we might all realize that the world can get by very well without money, as after all money is not necessary for the world to go around!!!! If money failed completely tomorrow, with most transactions now electronic, what would change? Very little - except the immensely wealthy would suddenly find themselves like everyone else. Money is just power to buy guns, exert influence and buy privilege. Sharing freely doesn't cost ANYTHING!!|
|Oh, and all these copyright actions just serve as a platform for true and genuine human beings to promote ALL of us getting along a little better!!!!!!!!!|

We in our town have an alternative money system, let me explain-;
Anyone can buy the services of anyone else who has joined the system and tokens called 'Chuckles' are traded instead of cash. Each person has a 'Chuckles' bank account and writes the other a cheque for the services. almost everyone starts off overdrawn in thier account, but this is ok as it is required for the system to work.
We can buy, building labour, car lifts, dog walkers, baby siters, arobic & martial arts classes, oainters & decorators and so on. All we have to do is provide the materials and offer our own skills or products to the other members of the system.
