MPAA Wants To Block Pirate Sites in the US

MPAA Wants To Block Pirate Sites in the US

The Movie Picture Association of America is currently discussing ways to introduce website blocking in the US with the major movie studios. Apparently, the studios will try to block sites using the existing law, while trying to avoiding another SOPA-style backlash.

Website filtering has become one of the most popular anti-piracy measures for the music and movie industries. Europe is increasingly forcing Internet service providers to shut down subscriber access to pirate websites, but this technique has not yet gained traction in the US.

If the SOPA law had been introduced, American blocking regimes might already be enforced. Fortunately, the Act was stamped down 2 years ago following a furious public and technology sector revolt. But perhaps, the blocking proponents were just waiting for the storm to die down. The reports are that last year the MPAA and its major studio partners started to seriously consider their options for re-introducing the website blocking agenda to the US. Over 2014, momentum has been building, but no real options to introduce new legislation were found. As a result, now the MPAA is looking at applying the existing law to its aims.

First of all, the MPAA is trying to figure out the possibility of obtaining a DMCA 512(j) blocking injunction without having to establish that a broadband provider is also responsible for copyright violation. However, the lawyers concluded that an American court would “likely” require a rights owner to establish an ISP as secondarily liable before granting any website-blocking injunction. So, this is not the easiest and cheapest option.

The MPAA also considers Rule 19 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure – “Required Joinder of Parties” – as a way to obtain a blocking injunction against a broadband provider. The anti-piracy outfit wants to obtain a judgment finding a foreign piracy website guilty of infringement. Rule 19 could then be used to join a broadband provider in the lawsuit without having to accuse the provider of wrongdoing or issue any claims against it. This option is evaluated by the lawyers as “largely untested”.

The MPAA is also considering using the ITC to force Internet service providers to block “rogue” websites and using the Communications Act for this purposes. It is yet to remain seen whether the movie studios’ achievements in Europe will be mirrored in the US.

Raven1159 avatarAll this does is fuel the push towards decentralization... good luck blocking that.

No avatar@rathtain. Sure they do, but the general population doesn't. If it did the MPAA would be doing something different, like taking servers down that promote piracy, it just becomes more difficult to have the government pass laws covering censorship of the Internet.

No avatar@rathrain/morally So even if they do block sites like this, a VPN lets you access it still? I admit I am ignorant on such things and after TPB was smooshed I would be sad if I can't come here as well.

trialNerror avatarI'm starting to believe laws are absolutely pointless since lawyers and politicians will interpret them however they see fit to be used in their own agenda.

All in all this whole crappy situation is like the war on drugs. They can't beat it so they need to wake up and stop wasting their money trying to beat it. That's where they're losing most of their revenue is in lawyer fees doing circus acts for them trying to create lawsuits in hopes of garnishing outrageous amounts in so-called damages. 1 person sharing 1 file does not equal $100,000 in lost profits. It equals $20, at most. If that really want that $20 from everyone, bug the service providers that are already shafting us without any lube for some of that overpriced weak broadband internet.

trialNerror avatarOh yeah... is there ANYBODY working at the top of the ladder at the RIAA and MPAA with some down-to-earth logic and reasoning I can contact? If so, I need to sit down and talk to these two people face-to-face.

rathtain avatar@squeakaroni if they block a website it is a country specific block. The VPN gets you around it by telling the internet that you are in another country. If they take down the servers as they did with Demonoid a few years ago and more recently with Pirate Bay then you just hope they have a back up server. If not the site may be down for a long time.

No avatarEvery torrent site should carry as many Linux & BSD distros as possible and offer to "sell" CD/DVD copies for a nominal - but above cost and therefore technically profitable - fee so they can file their own lawsuits against organizations & governments for restriction of trade, interference with one's ability to earn a living, etc. when and if they get blocked somewhere.

To beat 'em we need to be just as looney as they are.

rathtain avatarI am 42 years old. I used to record music off of the radio onto cassettes. and make copies of cassettes. I used to have 2 VCRs and made copies of movies I rented. This is no different.

No avatarThey aren't losing money. Look at the top pirated movies of the year list, it's similar to the top grossing movis of the year list. If anything, piracy boosts ticket sales by increasing word of mouth. Heck, I've went and seen movies in ththeaters that I normally would not have just because it turned out to be good. Piracy has put MORE of my money in Hollywood pockets than the lack thereof. If they shut down these sites, they'll only get my money through DVDs... and maybe via wal-marts $5 bin at that.
