Payment Services Consider Making up a French “Pirate Site” Blacklist

Urged by the French government, some payment platforms cooperate with rights owners in order to ban infringing websites. Apparently, the stakeholders are trying to decrease online piracy using the "follow the money" approach. This move was taken after the failed introduction of SOPA legislation in the US. Now the entertainment industry is looking for alternative means to achieve the same goals.

Thus, the anti-piracy groups are lobbying the public and private sector to help them. So far, the governments supported voluntary agreements in the US and the UK. Now France seems to follow the same path, trying to strangle the revenues of pirate services by making it harder to run adverts and accept online payments.

France’s Minister of Culture and Communication suggested that payments to and from pirate websites should be blocked where possible. As a result, a number of leading online payment processors such as PayPal, Visa and MasterCard discussed a possible “pirate blacklist” agreement. It should be noted that most of the largest online payment services already prohibit copyright infringing services in their terms of use, but the new measures would go above and beyond them. According to the voluntary agreement, copyright holders would create and maintain the blacklist, while the payment providers would use it to prevent blacklisted sites from signing up or to terminate existing accounts. It should be noted that the new plan deviates from previous suggestions by the authorities that the blacklist would receive government oversight.

Critics of the move fear that without proper oversight the blacklist may become too broad, which would potentially result in destroying businesses not deemed illegal by any court.
