It’s no surprise that such file-sharing services like the Pirate Bay disagree with coming in forth of such laws as Digital Economy Act (DEA) that was enacted in the United Kingdom. This document is really “strange” from the point of Bay’s view. It offers to ban public Wi-Fi, as well as implement the web filters and 3-strikes policy to control the data sharing in the Internet. Such censorship is aimed to stop piracy, that contradicts the Pirate Bay’s philosophy.
Its representatives call the document “a piece of British legislation for controlling how people use the Internet. It gives the unlimited facilities to unelected politicians to find guilty everyone who was accused for copyright violation, even without the investigation”. The Pirate Bay insists that such laws limit the human right to freedom of expression and encourages everyone to demand the responsibility from those MPs who pushed the DEA on.
The Pirate Bay actually tries to defend its own interests with the help of UK citizens, but also has useful thoughts of how to stop such unfairness in point of human rights limitation:
• They encourage voters to ask the candidacies if they oppose the DEA. Each MP must explain his position to this act, that is why it is reasonable to ask the reasons of voting for or against it. The candidacies can be contacted directly via: http://bit.ly/emailyourcandidates
• The main concern is that people really don’t understand what implications the Act has and how it will influence on future society. That is why the Bay asks everyone to explain their friends and family how exactly the Act influences on human rights and the way of using Internet.
• To be well-informed in everything connected with the DEA, you can join the Open Rights Group’s Action e-mail list: http://www.openrightsgroup.org/sign-up-against-disconnection. Here you will find all about the DEA implementation progress and measures to protest against it.
There is no doubt that the DEA will influence on the online users community in a severe way. The Pirate Bay is right in its intentions to make the society informed in such serious laws like the DEA.
The most interesting fact is that the British Phonographic Industry, main DEA’s proposer, actually lied when saying it was the way to stabilize the music industry, as it already shown sales growth. It’s like they have additional interests that are far from ‘saving the planet from copyright catastrophe’.
