Anti-piracy groups and government officials of the US, EU and Russia met up in Brussels at the roundtable “Combating Internet Piracy: International Practice” to discuss the need to cooperate and strengthen copyright legislation.
A meeting hosted by the Motion Picture Association was titled “Combating Internet Piracy: International Practice” and was attended by government officials from Europe, Russia and the US to discuss Internet piracy. The parties agreed that a lack of IP protection caused significant economic damage to individual copyright owners and the global economy as a whole. They also agreed that consumers are negatively impacted from enjoying entertainment in a safe environment. As a result, the parties came to a conclusion that collaboration is needed, both in sharing information and working towards tougher legal frameworks.
It is known that the representatives from the US “six-strikes” Copyright Alert System and the British GetitRight campaign attended the roundtable. These groups can share data on how educational messages affect the behavior of online infringers and how voluntary agreements with ISPs can help introduce pirate website blockades.
The parties also discussed the role of search engines and user-generated content companies in fighting Internet piracy. Russia mainly has problems with the local search engine Yandex, while the US and Europe focused on Google and services like YouTube. According to the summary of the meeting, the ISPs’ liability and related legislative initiatives will be relevant issues in the future, especially in the United States, where the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA are under scrutiny.

|Uh Oh, And a Ill wind blew when adversaries agreed upon a common enemy.|
That would be those who share.aka: us
|Doesn't sound good. But I'd say the politicians themselves are responsible for causing " caused significant economic damage"!|
Not sure what this is about? "They also agreed that consumers are negatively impacted from enjoying entertainment in a safe environment". They reckon going to the theater and sitting among noisy people trying to watch a movie is a positive environment? And a safe environment? Personally I wanna break necks of noisy people in the theater. Much rather watch my content at home where I can enjoy it, safely, and where I can turn the frikkin volume down for music and up for dialogue!

|Just get together with everyone in the neighborhood and have a unique WIFI password. One person gets a movie, so do 500 others, etc. No internet required!|
|oh they are so dump. it takes the power of major governments to think of solutions. when a 300 employeed seattle based private company, valve solves a majority of gaming piracy by working on a perfect service, steam. to be fair passion for gaming and respect for (some devs) was there its a the best marketting tool they have with customers and valve exploit this to increase it by investing in productive activities of the community.|
hollywood etc dont have this, they dont deserve respect. however they expect to get it. its a two way street, respect thy customers wishes. and since there is no spontaneous order of a gabe newell like company where there are no bosses and no beaten wife syndrome to had. Which is what valve says has happened to those they hire, who come from the movie industry. If they ever express an opinion or other insight someone will come out and smite them for doing it.
and further more alot of the piracy comes from ppl working in the industry who get pissed at whoever bosses them around, im thinking certain directors.
So they undermined their own industry through greed, they think if they stop piracy via cutting off access they will regain their lost profits from returning customers. NOPE, we'll just mock you on steam community driven content thats spilling into the film industry
"oh they are so dump."
Lol .. I don't think you should be calling anyone dumb when you're have trouble spelling the word dumb.
|@Mulva we can all forgive spelling mistakes can't we not, and by the way, who really cares he got his message through I understand exactly what he is trying to say.|
Now not realizing that is DUMB.
|@russianfuk Yes we can all forgive spelling mistakes.. but since his point was pretty dumb in the first place I found it pretty funny that he was pointing out how 'dump' others supposedly are.||
