Movie Studios Sue ISPs in Australia over Blocking Expenses

Major torrent sites will be eventually blocked in the country, but how the blockade will be arranged is so far unclear. This week the Australian Internet service providers and movie studios have been in court fighting over who will cover the costs of blockades.

New copyright legislation in the country was passed in 2015, and the first site-blocking cases were started in Federal Court in early 2016, where entertainment companies sought to have a number of pirate websites blocked at the ISP level.

After a hearing in March 2016, major industry players and local broadband providers showed up in court again a few days ago to clarify the details. The Internet service providers do not refuse to implement blockades, but just want to agree on some practical issues.

The problem is that the new law states that ISPs can be forced to block an overseas “online location” if it infringes copyright, where the term “online location” is intentionally broad, allowing the copyright owners argue that it encompasses blocking more than just IP addresses and URLs. In other words, the entertainment industry wants the same powers as in the United Kingdom, where proxies and other workarounds can be easily added to existing injunctions against the infringing sites like The Pirate Bay. However, copyright owners and ISPs have so far been unable to agree on how such a mechanism can be implemented in Australia.

To cut down on costs, copyright owners want the ability to swiftly add mirrors and proxies to existing blocking orders after advising Internet service providers. They believe this approach can streamline the process and ensure that new blocks are implemented within 2 weeks. The ISPs do not agree and want rightsholders to obtain new court orders for each “workaround” site that emerges.

In the meantime, another significant matter is who will pay: while copyright owners feel that ISPs should bear the costs, the ISPs think otherwise. The entertainment industry claims that ISPs are “successful and wealthy organizations,” for which the costs of blocking are both minimal and “comfortable” to bear. And they will have an incentive to keep costs down. Moreover, aside from wanting ISPs to cover the costs of blocking, the copyright owners also want them to pay all of the legal bills, too.

eyemanozzy avatarso copyright owners want a free ride !!...well if the cost is so minimal , what's wrong with copyright owners paying their own way for their legislation ??
sounds like the greedy pigs are having a cash smorgasboard.....and we all know they can't make money from shit movies yet they still make them !!
maybe the copyright cartel can pay our legal costs if we get caught !..afterall,it is only a minor cost....
greedy dickheads..........

BaBaDapper avatarScrew this " The entertainment industry claims that ISPs are “successful and wealthy organizations,” for which the costs of blocking are both minimal and “comfortable” to bear". Pretty sure the entertainment industry is more 'successful and wealthy' and so the costs to them would be even more 'comfortable' and finally and importantly its their material they are supposedly trying to protect.

Slimy corporations at their best wanting to screw over everybody else for a bigger piece of pie.

InPlainSight avatarUniversal alone grossed $2.5 billion from 21 movies in 2015. That's the simple version. NOW have a look at "Hollywood Accounting" at techdirt.com and get your tissues ready to weep into with sympathy for the big studios. Yeah, things are tough.
