Editorial Infringing Websites Shut Down in Italy

Editorial Infringing Websites Shut Down in Italy

While the movie and music industry is making headlines in the US and most of Europe with their copyright infringing lawsuits, an Italian agency responsible for dealing with financial crime has raided and shut down ten websites accused of illegally distributing news content. The operation was dubbed Phoenix and has also resulted in the arrest of 5 individuals; in addition, further 5 overseas websites were blocked by attacking their DNS.

Unlike all the usual stories with infringing movies and songs, the Italian authorities are ready to pursue people going to profit other web-based content. The news is that the law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance coordinated national action in order to prevent the illegal distribution of subscription editorial material. The Special Unit for Broadcasting and Publishing conducted an investigation, which resulted in identifying a number of people as being responsible for the illegal publication of newspapers and periodicals online without permission from the copyright holders. This is how 5 Italian residents were arrested on suspicion of backing 15 websites offering unauthorized news content including digital copies of subscription newspapers. In total, 10 local websites were raided and shut down. 5 other foreign websites were blocked by interfering with their DNS records. The authorities also seized computer equipment.

The Italian government announced that the operation Phoenix was made possible after the introduction of a new system of the local media groups which allows to track digital copies in the web. It was also said that the same principles applied in file-sharing cases were used in the news piracy investigation. The system is dubbed “Follow the money” and leads to suspects after tracking the financial resources that connect the operators of the unauthorized websites to the suppliers of the advertisements that showed up on their platforms.

The Italian authorities studied the local “publishing crisis” to find out that piracy of editorial content daily resulted in lost sales amounting to 400,000 copies of news articles in 2014. Thus, a 5-year decline in sales has led to 4,800 jobs being lost in the sector.

No avatarBah! I am in the USA and can get 5 full Italian major daily papers and about two dozen weeklies, for free. They are on the site I a am a member. I wouldn't buy those papers and don't even want to download them for free because they are huge files (1gb) Anyway, those Italian weeklies are full of ads. Print media (in Italy) is failing because there is so much cheap over the air tv that its disgusting people. I have a sat dish for free content and national over the air with 100 plus channels, which I don't watch!
