Victoria A. Espinel, the government’s new Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, is submitted a brief from the Government Accountability Office, which highlights industry losses and outlines a plan to tackle the Internet copyright infringement. The proposals include Internet filtering, keyword blocking for the search engines, pressing on proxy services ad domain name registrars, bandwidth choking, social networks monitoring searching for promotion of infringing sites, applications installing on home computers that will find and resume illegal copyrighted content and many-many other pleasant things.
The post of Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator was created at the end of 2008 and instantly got dubbed the “anti-piracy czar”. It was a part of PRO-IP Act, which aimed at increasing penalties for violating intellectual-property laws and helping the Justice Department to coordinate its efforts against piracy.
As far as Victoria A. Espinel requested some comments on intellectual property enforcement, such groups of copyright owners as RIAA and MPAA were happy to provide them.
Actually seems like they created the top list of options to destroy Internet rather than protect it. For example, a paragraph regarding filtering for search engines reminds of China with its communist tyranny. In short words, now RIAA and MPAA want search engines like Yahoo and Google to somehow get their search result rid of keywords relating to exposing copyrighted content without the permission. However, no explanation how it is possible.
Another interesting thing is the intention to monitor social networks in order to catch any mention of links to infringing material. Welcome the government agents coming soon to MySpace and Facebook spying on illicit file-sharers and websites.
Finally, the use of applications installed on home computers in order to monitor for signs of illegal content is probably the most amazing of all. Again, no description on where to find those insane ones who would agree to do that with their home PCs! Well, if the candy is packaged properly, like some protection or anti-virus program, it might work.
Still can anybody understand why the record industry keeps playing a game against consumers where everyone loses?

|Internet destroyers their plan will never suceed|
|What does "pressing on proxy services ad domain name registrars" mean?|
|I could see them working a deal with Symantec, Norton, Spybot etc to include such software to find illegal software and remove/report it. I am suprised M$ has not included something like that. Part of the Global Validation process...|
Great article SaM.

|well hi all we all know that we have to pay for new software and music but what gets me is the lenth of time this protection lasts it should be 5 years or so not decades if a bit of software is really good it will be world wide in 1 or 2 years !!!|
but because of the power of the Â£ the rules are made to this Â£ and not common sence
cheers great ed
|It is nothing but censorship under another name...|
Like word filtering WTF; I say use the word "windows, Norton, any popular word" what?
I am going to get blocked for alleged copyright infringement?
What is being missed IT WON'T WORK....
Everyone ( copyright holders ) complaining about copyright infringement have not really addressed why this is happening?
My opinion is the PRICE they put on it - carp they peddle to the users and when the user buys it IT has allot of bugs and other problems that the copyright holder then demands the user pay for updates to fix the bugs... We all know one such OS that has been out for years and still is crap..
Put a fair price on it; it is a good product and PEOPLE WILL BUY IT - Hey we all work hard for our money. Those Corporate buttwads don't do any work except see how big a paycheck they can real in.
Granted even if the cost is reasonable THERE WILL STILL BE PEOPLE WHO PIRATE BECAUSE THEY CAN...
P2P torrents give many a chance to try something then if it is rally good and DOES WHAT THEY NEED IT TO DO; most times buy it for the tech support that they get..
|im only downloading movies i wouldent see or i should say pay to see otherwise , if they filter my downloading or block any of p2p well then there is no reson for me to have internet. i will cut service to all of my media if gona be that censored i dont want it|

here's a reason those companies will not do that there market share would collapse as every file sharer moves off there product
lets be honest here everyone that uses the net has broke copyright in some fashion even if it is saving a picture the way this is going all the net will be good for is for research
was that not the orignal idea for it guess they are trying to get that another way
|well if this thing becomes successful then there won't be any need for my broadband so the companies would lose money cause i would'nt subscribe to something i can't use it's like subscribing to cable but not watching any channels pointless really so in one hand people will lose jobs somewhere down the line this thing is becoming like china we are heading into a communist facist world people the net was designed for total freedom and no one owned it guess we better pack out bags and head to the moon folks|

|I Agree i would drop all my media 240.00 a month .4 what to restrict my freedom from the net.alot of jobs will be lost. point less ill just sit in star bucks on the wifi boot from their do my thing and get out. run a phone line to box in the basement and chit chat wit the world that way. plus i love to meet people who hack i might learn something and get a real job....Ta Ta...|
|Well, govrenment canÂ´t take the 'people' having control ofver their own thoughts. That would lead to open thought and 'action' (which is what they fear). The use of these laws regarding copyright and other tactics are just there to mask their real intention (control and laws to control). Isn't that why we invented 'organized religion'? It has been going on forever in one aspect or another. Take away a chunk of liberty at a time.|
