Domain Name Registrars Accused of Facilitating Piracy

A number of major international tech giants, including Microsoft, Google and Facebook, are urging the American government to leave domain name registrars alone and not to place them on the yearly overview of piracy-facilitating markets. The tech firms explain that registrars and other third party providers cannot be held responsible for the actions of their customers.

Recently, copyright holder groups have submitted their overviews of “notorious markets” to the US government, which would use them to provide an overview of threats to copyright industries. As usual, the submitted list mentions a well-known file-sharing websites like The Pirate Bay, but last time it also mentioned a domain name registrar. Now the entertainment industry expanded the list and identified domain name registrars as possible piracy facilitators once again.

In response, the tech giants submitted a rebuttal to the US government and outlined their concerns, defending domain registrars and explaining that 3rd party service providers enjoy immunity from copyright infringement claims under the law.

Worse still, the movie and music groups went event further and argued in their latest filings that service providers other than domain registrars should also increase their efforts in countering online piracy, including Cloudflare, who was said to have many “notorious” websites among their customers. The tech giants and their representatives also opposed this request and warned against measures that would involve 3rd-party companies in regulating and policing the web. They pointed out that copyright owners have many tools to reduce copyright infringement and should not be allowed to interfere with fundamental Internet infrastructure.

BaBaDapper avatarSo are THEY saying to registrars they shouldn't have names like "pirate" "torrent" etc available? Well lets say THEY win that one. What THEY gonna do when OUR language evolves to make something innocuous like "care2share" cover P2P activities? THEY are always going to be one step behind as they try to outlaw any words WE chose to introduce.
