Dutch Film Creators Accused Government of Damaging Industry

Moviemakers accused the Dutch government of tolerating and even encouraging online piracy for a long time. Now the Dutch filmmakers' association is claiming damages they've suffered over the past decade, which could amount to hundreds of millions of euros.

Online piracy, which affects producers of movies and TV-shows, is very widespread in the Netherlands, compared to many other countries: about 30% of the population download and stream illegal copies of copyrighted content for free. This is because the Netherlands has traditionally been a safe haven for pirates – the matter is that pirating movies was not illegal there until 2014, when the European Court of Justice criticized the tolerant stance. After that, the local government quickly outlawed illegal file-sharing. Nevertheless, the local piracy rates still remain high.

As a result, the Dutch filmmakers’ association claimed the government was responsible for damages and had to compensate the piracy losses suffered. The association submitted the claim to the Ministry of Security and Justice earlier in 2015. It was denied, but the content creators intend to press on, insisting that their demands are legitimate and the government has to compensate them for a decade of piracy damages. The filmmakers explain that despite the new ban on illegal downloading, almost nothing has changed – there haven’t been any prosecutions of downloaders. In other words, it looks like the Dutch government has actually encouraged the public to pirate, which costs the industry millions in lost revenues.

In respond, critics often argue that the entertainment industry itself can do more to curb piracy – for example, make sure that their content is widely available to the public for a decent price. The filmmakers agree that improvements can be made on the supply side, but they should be combined with stronger enforcement. On the other hand, the local government has already decided that consumers should not be prosecuted.

The association is currently calling for an accurate estimate of the damages the entertainment industry has suffered. They are hard to estimate, but the moviemakers point to a recent study, which estimated the losses at 78 million euros annually.

analogkid6103 avatarIm sure they have all kinds of numbers for them,they get the tracker numbers and attach a full retail price to each tic.
And than post it as if it were stolen right off of the counter.
Or most likely as orders cancelled for the package.
Yeah its great theater and it keeps the lawyers working.
Its still not an accurate count of actual revenue loss.
Cause I know plenty of peeps who are broke and have the best content.
And they did not go broke buying it,nor would they.

Biggest_Baddest_Wolf avatar@analogkid6103: "...and attach a full retail price to each tic" - nahhhh that'd be too cheap, wouldn't fetch enough money.
Each tic is considered a big downloader/uploader, who spreads the content to at least 1000 others, so you're looking at "each tic is 1+1000*full retail price lost to piracy".
Add to that the taxes, the "kopiëer heffing", the taxes, again the "kopiëer heffing" PLUS taxes, then count that 1001 times per tic again, and finally add taxes plus "kopiëer heffing", and that's the outcome.
Of course, we won't consider that there's only so many people actually downloading, because then we won't be able to charge in with a multi-billion Euro double-dip attitude... or someonew might notice that the industry's percentages and prices are way over the top... "because really, as a large industry, we are entitled to charge everyone and their great-great-grandparents twenty times for one single missed purchase".

eNdEmiOn avatarShouldn't they be waiting for TTIP to be realized before suing a state!? (sarcasm)
Maybe we should sue the state for the damages caused forcing us into using VPN services and such just to get privacy back what they are supposed to be defending in the first place already.

I wonder who came up with the term piracy? I bet it's on purpose so similar to privacy so that it subconsciously creates a link between the 2 all in a big manipulation move to get people to confuse the 2 and therefor be more ok with losing rights. Sadly we are even using the term ourselves and even think it cool to use. All the wile not even realizing that the only thing you buy when "purchasing" a movie is permission to watch it in a certain way and/or a certain amount of times. Which is of course preposterous knowing that one man has no right to force another to ask him permission to do anything.
