UK ISP Asked Reseller to Warn Pirating Subscribers

UK ISP Asked Reseller to Warn Pirating Subscribers

One of the UK Internet providers, TalkTalk, has asked the reseller to forward a copyright infringement notice from the content owner to a subscriber. In the meantime, company itself doesn’t send any piracy warnings to its subscribers.


Unlike American broadband providers, the UK ISPs are not required to forward copyright infringement notices to their customers. In other words, local Internet users don’t face the typical warnings which are so common elsewhere.

Regardless of lacking legal requirements, a number of anti-piracy groups still forward the copyright violation notices to British Internet service providers. Normally the providers ignore them, but last week one of the providers for some reason forwarded a notice to its reseller. TalkTalk asked Opal Solutions to forward the notice to one of its subscribers who was suspected of sharing a pirated copy of “Godzilla” movie. Moreover, the reseller was recommended to take some preventive measures, without specifying what they should be.

The copyright infringement notice sent by TalkTalk was a typical DMCA style notice sent by IP Echelon on behalf of Warner Bros. However, it didn’t try to customize the notice for the British audience, as the email specifically references the copyright law of the United States, which can’t be applied to the reseller or TalkTalk.

But the most interesting fact is that TalkTalk has decided to pass on this notice. The broadband provider was never noticed before to forward these notices to its own subscribers, but now for some reason the company is urging its reseller to go beyond what’s required by law. Actually, many would agree that the forwarded email looks like an attempt to avoid liability. This leads us to a suspicion that if TalkTalk does this with its resellers, it can also start warning its own customers as well.

Earlier in 2013 it became known that TalkTalk and other British providers were going to voluntarily start delivering infringement warnings under the VCAP program. Although that program is scheduled to go into effect only in 12 months, the recent move of TalkTalk could suggest that they might do something sooner.
