ISPs Are Against a “3-Strikes” Law

With the “three-strikes” law walking around the planet, many users have got an unexpected ally – ISPs. They are against the “three-strikes” despite they are at the same time strive for ending network neutrality and throttling users.


Lots of ISPs, when being asked about their attitude to a “three-strikes” and ACTA, respond that they are concerned about ACTA and don’t like the idea of playing Internet police part by monitoring their own networks at all. The reasons for ISPs to be so resistant to becoming the traffic cops are numerous. First of them is resources. The ISPs would rather like the idea of rights owners bearing the costs of monitoring such amount of traffic to help themselves to prosecute file-sharers. However, the Canadian rights owners were not happy with such suggestion and began asking for copyright reform instead.

The copyright holders are looking for a silver bullet that can magically eliminate file-sharing. The problem is that they can’t understand such a bullet doesn’t exist. Well, even if it existed, file-sharers would just find another way to circumvent it and continue as usual.

The “three-strikes” law changes little with its passing. The copyrights owners still want broadband providers to carry all the cost a “three-strikes” law bring with it. But now it is a money issue, as it comes to the situation when entertainment industry asks ISPs to finally reduce their profit. That is not natural for a sane industry to eagerly drop their revenue at the demand of someone, you know. It’s easy – entertainment industry disconnects users and ISPs will lose money on subscriber fees.

Another rule service providers don’t like is blocking access to different websites. Well, everyone agrees that there are some sites that really need to be blocked, but who will decide when to stop? Rights holders want to block file-sharing websites, political activists want to get rid of their ideological opponents, various companies want to block the competitor’s websites and so on. That can come to an end of the Internet at all. Less online resources means ISPs can’t sell traffic because almost every website is blocked.

While many users consider a “three-strikes” regime and ACTA a great threat to their freedom, it can be pleasant to know that copyrights owners will have quite a steeper hill to climb on they way!

dubbsizzle avatarI think that even if ISP's wanted to do it. After a short while they would see the cost in trying to police the network and pull the plug on people's service. Not only do the lose the money spent trying to watch over traffic but also lost money in less customer base. This is a lose, lose for any ISP. So i don't see it going anywhere but getting the little warning letters in the mail. That also may stop after some time when they see it's really not working but they are losing revenue on that also. Nothing will work unless those looking at ending file-sharing pay the money to do so. And that wouldn't make sense at all.

Just my thoughts.

2die4 avatar@ lizard this law was forced thru because the pedophile that is mandelson went on a business trip with Sony Europe and was bribed i mean lobbied to make this into law and then what happened was that labour decided that this would be party policy so that meant all labour MPS would have to vote on this bill so thats why it was FORCED THRU during the wash up process of parliment.

dslbandit avatarI recently read an article about an ISP in Europe that found a way around the required monitoring: they stopped maintaining user logs and therefore have no way of ratting on their customers. Maintaining logs is not required at all. Unfortunately if this catches on they may try to incorporate this requirement in a new bill. Smart thinking on the part of the ISP though!
