Representatives of music industry say that it’s not the best way to address supposed illegal sharers of files. Such things should better be set apart for more serious cases of violation.
The British Phonographic Industry is expressing its opinion against the UK law company ACS:Law, specializing in lawsuits in behalf of intellectual property rights holders and approaching enforcement of their rights globally by mass lawsuit. The representative of Phonographic Industry states that they don't encourage the strategy of ACS:Law focused on illegal file-sharers, because it mismatches equitable and differential approach kept by the Industry and offered by Digital Economy Bill.
The above-mentioned company announced an original project to target about fifteen thousand supposed illegal sharers of files in the United Kingdom within the bounds of revolutionary model of business which increases the profits for rights holders and efficiently reduces copyright violation in a moderate and steady way. That was declared to be as opposite of expensive and inefficient methods used by other firms to fight the piracy.
However, later it made reconsideration with deciding to decrease the amount of such cases bounding the lawsuits to those it believed to be acceptable and advantageous to its customers.
Recently we knew it wasn’t attentive enough. ‘Which?’, the biggest consumer body in the United Kingdom, with more than 650 thousand members, announced that over one and a half hundred people were complaining to have been accused by mistake, and now this number is growing rapidly with more people coming forward after learning they are not the only ones.
One of the complaints says that ACS:Law sent a letter to the seventy-eight-year-old man demanding five hundred pounds for a porn video he was supposed to have downloaded. Though he has no idea what peer-to-peer of bit torrent is, and has undoubtedly not done that himself or let anybody to use the computer for that.
Phonographic Industry’s spokesman added that the Industry doesn’t encourage the idea of mass lawsuits and believes that such action is to be taken only in serious cases, but not as the first response. May be that is because of the fear of angering music admirers or failure of similar project by Recording Industry Association of America in the United States.
