Entertainment Industry against UK Pirate Party & TPB

Music industry group (British Phonographic Industry) is accusing the British Pirate Party of running its TPB proxy. The copyright outfit is going to sue the British Pirate Party because it refused to take its proxy for The Pirate Bay tracker offline.

The British Phonographic Industry asked the Pirate Party to close down the site, but the outfit had to quickly turn to threats when it didn’t get its way. The Pirate Party leader claimed that the party will stand behind its principles, which could result in an expensive legal battle.

After the High Court ordered a number of British Internet service providers to block their subscribers’ access to the largest BitTorrent tracker earlier in 2012, millions of users began using the British Pirate Party’s proxy service. Frankly speaking, it’s currently one of the most popular sites in the country.

In the meanwhile, the problem is now that any legal action could turn into a financial disaster for the Pirate Party, though it assures that it would do everything in its power to keep the proxy running. The Pirate Party points out that it is clear that allowing access to the BitTorrent tracker is against the law.

The political party is becoming increasingly concerned about the fact that the music industry group has been granted too much power to decide on which sites are to be blocked. Anyway, until last week the Pirate Party hadn’t been contacted to take its proxy down.

In the meanwhile, copyright owners have taken the proxy website of the Dutch Pirate Party down. The local court strictly forbade the party from hosting or even linking to TPB proxies. Although the Dutch Pirate Party promised to appeal the verdict, it is still saving up money to afford an appeal.

Overall, the local media has already voiced the general feeling among the Pirate Party members, saying that the entertainment industry is using its legal muscle to get the Party to fold. And if it has success with that, it will be the first precedent that corporate interests have killed off a British political party. According to a representative of the British Phonographic Industry, there’s no issue with the Pirate Party itself, or the Pirate Party expressing its views on any other section of their site.

solyd avatarTo be honest I dont think corporate interst will be responsible for killing off a british political party. It will be the fact that the british political party appeals with the rest of its remaining money and savings and if it loses the appeal, that will be what potentially kills it off. They could just 'not' appeal. Dont get me wrong though, I support P2P freedom for want of a better term but I'm just being unbiased on this article. But I hope they do appeal and I hope they are successful. I hate big business trampling over individuals and dictating to us with what suits them.

No avatarAhhh the legal system of the civilized world is something to wonder, isn't it? sure no corporate interests can make a party fold... i mean corporations have access to unlimited amounts of money and have wings dedicated to bleeding dry its competition through lawsuits (even if they have no basis) just like regular people...

Jedimastersky avatarI think the point is being missed here. The Pirate Party UK can not afford the legal expence of going to court on this issue. Although The Pirate Party UK is an offical political party in, membership is a fraction of the main stream parties with very little in the purse. party membership is only £12 pa and donations are fickle to say the least. If the Party did have the funds, I believe The Pirate Party UK would hold their own in court and probibly win this issue. So yes I do believe that an organisation with the current powers and finances that want to bully their policies on to others can do so if the smaller guy does not have the funds to protect his own intrests, hence the big guy wins. If The Pirate Party UK do appeal it will undoubtly cost them most if not all of their funds, making them bankrupt and out of business. I rely on The Pirate Party UK to keep my freedoms free ecpecialy on the Net so I for one would say to The Pirate Party UK back off for not, take the spanking and come back fighting when you have more members and/or funds. In the meantime keep the awareness of our plite visable and in the media as much as possible with the funds you do have in the bank.

P.S written very qickly without spell checker so no comments on splling please.
P.P.S can someone tell me how to activate the forum spell checker?

Jedimastersky avatarOf course we could all offer a little help finacialy if you so wish to The Pirate Party UK by becoming members or donating a few quid at their website (pirateparty.org.uk)

EViLKiLLZ avatarIn The U.K too? ffs sooner or later we'll have to pay just to get on any website. If they had it their way they'd probably charge for each letter you type being put on online. If they ever control the internet we're screwed not just for movies but more importanly real information. Plain sickening

skreamer avatarDon't think many will fund the Pirate Party tbh. Its all about the money.

And actually lately when I've used the proxy they had for TPB all I've had is a screen full of politics and no access to TPB, so maybe they have backed off?
