All Consumers to Pay for the Digital Economy Act

There are lots of things wrong with this “three-strikes” legislation, one of the most appalling being that service providers would most likely have to foot the bill to enforcement, covering costs of letter writing campaigns, for example. What is worse, consumer groups are concerned that those costs would later be passed on to users.


This cannot sound for a deal for an ordinary consumer anyway. If you are not an infringer, you would still have your Internet provider increase your subscription fees in order to enforce this legislation and start letter writing campaigns aimed at stopping the infringement. If you are an infringer, you would of course have to pay either a lawyer to defend yourself, or the court penalties unless you are looking forward to facing some jail time.

An impact assessment of DEB was done not so long time ago and it showed that enforcement of the Act doesn’t come very cheap. It estimates the costs of notification being around £3-10 per letter. As you remember, the “three-strikes” regime objective is to achieve the reduction in copyright infringement by 70% in 2 years. You can calculate further: the figures reveal that for achieving this result 6.5 million unauthorized downloaders should be notified per year. This brings the costs for the ISPs around £20-£65 million. And here the talk is about a single letter. You can imagine the figures if multiple letters get involved.

All this is supposed to be paid by the ISPs. If they pass the costs on to their consumers, this will cause an increase in prices by 0.2%-0.6%. This, in its turn, will cause a permanent effect of decreasing demand for ISPs’ services around 10,000-40,000 people, which is £2- £9 million of additional revenue lost every year.

This will affect even users only turning their computers on to check e-mail. Actually, the plan of disconnecting works great – people will disconnect themselves because they wouldn’t be able to afford the broadband services. This doesn’t seem right at all.

That’s what is wrong with Digital Copyright Act. If it exists, it has to make sense. If an entertainment industry wants ISPs to play cops, then it should cover the costs, because it’s not them doing business, but the industry. No one can expect the consumers of both sides to pay for the failings of an antiquated business model, as it’s a mere absurd.
