American ISPs Refuse to Disconnect Repeat Pirates

American ISPs Refuse to Disconnect Repeat Pirates

USTelecom, a US trade association representing a number of broadband providers, opposed the abusive takedown notices and recent requests to terminate the accounts of repeat pirates. The group claims that Internet service providers cannot be forced to pass on takedown notices and highlights that their subscribers cannot be disconnected solely on copyright holder complaints.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act was introduced almost 20 years ago and meant to ready copyright legislation for the digital age. This piece of law secured a safe harbor for ISPs, saying that they cannot be held responsible for their pirating users if they address the problem of repeat infringers. However, the ISPs reluctantly disconnected accounts of digital pirates.

Copyright owners claim that 3 infringement notices (“strikes”) are enough for disconnection, but the ISPs don’t agree. USTelecom explains that DMCA’s safe harbor provisions do protect ISPs from liability for copyright infringements carried out by their subscribers and reminds that the ISPs normally act as mere conduits who pass on digital data, which are not subject to takedown notices at all, especially given the fact that such notices often include settlement demands that copyright holders pressure ISPs to forward to subscribers.

Of course, the copyright owners are not ready to agree with this position and instead push for tougher actions against Internet users who receive repeat notices, often urging the ISPs to disconnect subscribers based on these allegations. USTelecom stresses that the DMCA notices are not always addressed to the right person, and the senders do not always represent the copyright owner.

Crash1 avatarThey don't have to DISCONNECT somebody in order to PUNISH them ... If they throttle the connection speed down enough it makes it pretty DIFFICULT to do much pirating ... unless they're VERY patient. (How much could YOU download if your speed was throttled to 128 or 256kbps)
This also has the benefit of NOT giving a reason for a lawsuit (as the subject would still have internet access for shopping, news, etc), and appeasing the copyright trolls somewhat.

No avatarThe Fcc ruled a year ago that cable companies CAN"T throttle or disconnected users for what they decide is illegal or obscene. Putting Cable into the utilities category where they should be.My cable company used to send threatening letters and shut us off. But that just doesn't happen anymore. I live in Nevada/America and no one is being shut off here anymore.
