The Obama administration has recently unveiled the Joint Strategic Plan On Intellectual Property Enforcement. That’s the name of a new initiative the administration hopes will inspire the efforts of the government departments focused on copyright theft.
The Coordinator of the Enforcement, Victoria Espinel, announced the commitment to protect the artistry and give American businesses some incentives to progress, also decrease the number of crimes connected with copyright infringement and protect U.S. citizens from counterfeiters. The only solution for all these problems is developing a strong copyright enforcement.
The above mentioned plan is the kind of fulfillment of the 2008 PRO-IP Act, which actually developed Espinel’s position in the government, dubbed the “copyright czar”. Her task is considered to coordinate federal and state attempts to stop piracy and counterfeiting.
Today’s plan supposes that the government should take a harder stance against those websites that are similar to ones mentioned in the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus’ list of the most dangerous websites in the world. Moreover, it says that the IPEC should later publicize and expand on the list.
In short words, the plan hints at the pushing ISPs for voluntarily agreeing to introduce a “three-strikes”, allowing to disconnect unauthorized file-sharers from the web. That is the regime the RIAA was thinking about since realizing its practice of suing individuals failed.
Vice President Biden joined Espinel on the plan, believing that physical and digital theft are of the same matter, because piracy hurts the U.S. economy, as well as people’s health and safety.
However, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has carried out a survey which revealed that the impact of piracy is much more complex as just lost sales. It actually has many different effects, both negative and positive. The negative ones for companies and the government include lost profits and tax revenue, while positive are consumers benefiting from lower prices and easier access.
The main concern is something that was known to everyone for a long time so far. That’s a substitution rate, i.e. the rate the number of unauthorized copies is compared to legal ones in terms of purchasing. The only ones who used it as 1:1 were the MPAA and RIAA.

|Lets see now they cant stop people from sneaking into the country illegal by the millions who suck up the system and drain it,cant stop the oil from gushing out the gulf,cant find w.m.d. in Iraq,sure as hell cant stop the Asians from selling boot leg movies in public they sell as if it was legal and no one says or does anything to the Asians in the state.they seem to be the only people selling movies in the state are the Asians like if it was candy. Its A Fooking joke how they get away with it in the states.u go into Manhattan and they set up tables on the street full of boot leg movies no ones does anything to them.|
|You are dead-on about the rampant and vagrant bootleg sales on the streets of NY city. It right in your face, at least where I used to live. When I used to live in the US I was ashamed of that country. Still am. The corruption is rampant and the legal system is an absolute joke. I had dual citizenship but after Bush got re-elected I proudly gave it up.|

|Oh Joy..... yet another own goal for Barack Hussein Obama. He must have given up on trying to sell "BP" as "British Petroleum" and/or discovered that it hadn't called itself British Petroleum since its name change around about 2000.|
|Barrack is such a pain.....So now what going to happen?|
|What do you expect from a president who thought America had 57 states?|

|Sh!t save you voted for them......now they got old left you to clean up what they stole|
|yes bang and this current president just stole 800 billion dollars on a stimulus bill that never stimulated anything...|
|I agree Banghard 100 percent, except you forgot something?|
They also can not tell the difference from their butthole from a hole in the ground without written directions and pictures.
As we all know they make a claim of copyright infringement and the ISP's are supposed to cut their connection.
I don't know about you; but if my connection is cut due to a "claim"; meaning no real documented fact that a file they "downloaded" from a user is in their possession; I will sue the ISP's and the "claimant" for slander and libel as well as other charges. American don't you just love it...
|well no matter what they say they are going to do they still have to up and do it. Make a company cut their customers for some other companies benefit. I just don't see that happening any time soon. Sure even if the ISP's are down for it at first they will soon see that it's hurting the pocket books not to just cut off customers but to police the internet.|
Just my thoughts.
|@banghard #3....the reason they can't stop or find any of that is because they don't have any1 to do it for them...hence why they want isp's to "voluntarily" go after they're own customers.|

|so much for the left being Liberal...In case no one noticed most of Holloywood is for the dems. Of course they protect their own..Wont stop me or stop p2p. MORE EMPTY HOPE AND CHANGE. The only thing thats changing is my freedom!|
|"Vice President Biden joined Espinel on the plan, believing that physical and digital theft are of the same matter, because piracy hurts the U.S. economy, as well as peopleâ€™s health and safety". This statement stuck out like Cheney's butt during a Gay Pride parade. Wow!!!! Allowing Big Business to hire other people to ferry in ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, and work for $5.00 a day instead of $5.00 an hour, allowing them to drain our resources AND offer them AMNESTY for citizenship!!! Bite me Biden, you and the current adminstration are about as in tune with the working class people as failin'palin and a room full of talking monkeys. We, the people YOU seek to take even more freedoms from WORK for a living. If anyone here or anywhere else in the town of Reality, not involved in politics, were to perform their jobs as good as you anal-delling blenderheads, we would've been fired by the end of the first week. And as far as health and safety, well, the state of affairs in our once great nation speak for themselves, If anyone here thinks that a Mexican is reading a paper from the Plain Dealer, Akron Beacon Journal, or the Columbus Dispatch on Sunday morning and planning a trip to Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, or West Virgina to seek gainful employment at a Bob Evans, Steak and Shake, Burger King, or anyone minimum pay job, Think again, Corporate America hires people to go and find these people and bring them here, check out the recent busts in meat packing plants across America. The present administration is great on chest pounding but folds like a card table and chairs in under 30 seconds. Intelligence is not required but a certain amount of common sense can do in a pinch. In the middle of the word BELIEVE, is the word LIE, and Obama used to in his early champaign stand under the LIE while getting the crowd to chant BELIEVE. Yeah, I believe...NOT|
|messiahx4ever is my hero|
|no one works for 5 dollars a day...??...thats lunch money.....|
|Shouldn't Obama be more concerned with BP instead of trying to catch copyright infringers? Oh that's right, the copyright infringers didn't contribute millions to his campaign. Douchebag.|
|Government is not the solution...government is the problem.|
|Ok so its been said that what? 80% of Internet traffic is P2P in the US, I wonder what will happen to the economy when everyone gets kicked off the Internet by there ISP's. A book from amazon cost $28, the same book from amazon but in ebook format costs $25. Its a digital file idiots, no paper no delivery costs no warehouse to store the books. Why is it only a 3 dollar difference. It should be like 5 or 1o bucks. And they wonder why people P2P.|

|I took two kids to a movie and purchased 3 small popcorn and 3 small sodas and was out of over 45 dollars. I didnt feel like I was contributing to the artist, I felt like I was being f__king RIPPED OFF. I dont mind paying the extra buck for the movie, but 25 dollars for popcorn and soda? the whole movie going experience is totally over rated and seriously over priced. Im all for bit torrents and p2p.|
|Please stop your bitching and moaning about President Obama. What makes you any better than those "crooks" selling bootlegs on the street? You are downloading the same movies for free and just as much a crook robbing the industry. If you download and watch the movie, you are just as guilty. As far as Prsident Obama appointing Czars, this is not a new condition for a president. Find something legitimate to bitch about. I find it hilarious, the very party which claim others are scamming the system are on this site downloading illegal music, games, software and movies. LOL, Government is not the solution until it serves conservatives---then it is the main solution! Unreal!|

|@jumpstarter...i've had a lot to say to your comment but i keep deleting it cause i don't want to bore people with more political ranting from myself. personally i'm in it for the fight, others may have their own reasons. but i do want to show a point here, so i'm gonna try....bear with me for a second. “I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” now what i did here was quote stephan hawking from his book. i typed as he did....did i infringe? he wrote it...i rewrote it...should they be looking to come after me for that? do you think they will? NO!? what about if i typed the whole book? i still doubt it.....but if i upload it or download it...I'M A CRIMINAL!!!! everything on the web is possibly infringed. tell me how many times you can google and view that quote, and or that book...then tell me how many of those viewings are from the copyright holder. that's why we bitch. and honestly, if you ask me, all the mpaa and riaa are proving, is if you have the money....you can sway these governments....and even you know that. i buy a dvd, i do what i want with it...if they don't like what i do....then they shouldn't make it available. if its still considered their property after i buy it, then they should come after me for dumping gas on it and setting it on fire and call it destruction of property. but they don't...why? because it becomes my property once i put the $$$ on the table. all they've went and done is turned the words around and changed the meaning of copyright. as for your we are "robbing the industry" comment. oyur mpaa/riaa friends could always go after the computer manufacturer's and stop them from making it possible for dvd/cd drives....but i think that's a fight they know they would lose...which means, its possible they can lose this one, i'm just waiting for the right person to stand up..................and once again i've ranted..all apologies :)|
|The worst words an american can hear is. I'm from the government, I'm here to help. As for you Jumpstarter let me rephrase my previous post. Obama is not the solution..Obama is the problem.|

|Obama is a joke. Only reason he is in office is because acorn,african americans needed a black leader so they flooded the ghettos across the us and were signing up Crackheads and drug dealers on the corner to vote. |
And in a time of war,turmoil and recession the us is more focused on going after the poor who cannot afford to buy or go see a movie. To protect the movie/music industry. Its total BS.
|The whole thing about hating on the black prez and poverty etc.. The prez isnt a joke,the actual office is. It has been since the 1930's when the American government went nato over the "red cats". They legitimized illegal actions by the government departments in the name of whatever they felt like. Obama has a script and a gun pointed at his head. Just like Kennedy. And you guys know what he got. Left, Right, politics its all a crock. 99% of the worlds wealth is in 1% of the worlds hands.|
|Oh jeez another conspiracy nut job.....you can come out into the real world with the rest of us whenever you like.|
|A responce to Saveit4later and the other less educated among you. 1st a challenge to open itellectual debate based on facts and a precise definition of terms, accusations and misnomers and redirection you tend to expouse, I will not engae in banter based on personal feeling and opinion , as they are irrelevant to the truth, they are a view of a position. There is a different by literal definition. Mr. Obama is not the problem..its ignorance of facts and misleading information, demogogues and misdirectorswho are as always the problem. If you allow the time by definition and using websters dictionary as a source , I will first debunk alot of the rhetoric you espouse in favor of truth and accuracy. No matter who is president of these stetes they are 1st required to uphold the law and U.S. constitution under oath, despite personal opinion. Thus if the law staes so far it is copyright ibfringement , he has to uphold it , unleess congress or the people write laws to the contrary. Then he would have to uphold them. Regan, bush1, bush2, all have made efforts to tamper with the laws by using the office as a platform, this is inconsistant with the spirit of the us govt system, but allowed and misuded regularly. All the republicans will be against file sharing as they support business and "money". they seek deregulationor no regulation, pure capitalism and fundamentally the right to get money. Torrents are sharing of "purchased materials by a private individual. except interms of profiting from a share a person who purchases should be illegal- but as an owner of a purchase , all rights to use of my purchase should belong to me to do as I see fit. but this loophole of life bothers the greedy, who want to own an idea- sell it to you- then say you can only use the idea one way, thus allowing the idea owner to see this idea, no matter how old, no matter how common, he wants to profit forever from the idea.under thsi - the wheel , would be payable to "OG" the invenetr, and the screw-shoould be paid to archemedies family, or representative, it is a lie of greed. This is why the copyright laws are ludicrous, meant to protect- but used to subvert. But btw, I keep noting those who want to blame everything on Mr. Obama. They do not even have respect for the office as they call him in a familiar manner and with insult and implied epethets.(not professional- not christian, not buddhist, not any religion you can identify. Obama socialist? Another tactic.Another label totally unrelated to this agaenda. We share files as a right of purchase and to save money. Thers leachers who get but dont give- thats "stealing" as there is no share. The industry steals as they do not pay the artists comprable to the art or technology, contracts are written to enrich- effluent " europeans" and label owners and distributors, who have raised all prices despite chgs in technology that made thier costs cheaper. (thats why such ahuge profit- all the cars and bling for executives-who sing not, rap not but collect money. Prince had it right- being independent. All this invoolves is money, and for governments - taxes and revenue, the love of money is the root of all eveil . get your slide rule and common sence and see this for what it is. More revenue, for rich and effluent whites and "some artists", the attempt to profit forever on a single idea. while selling the public often less than sterling albums, movies and books they cannot see the total contenbts of until they purchase. buying a "pig" in a poke. There is no oversight and they steal from us in higher prices, lower quality , and pass all overhead and new costs on to the consumer never lowering thier profit margin. The president unleess fully involved ususally just signs papers based on what he is told and advised. he cannot read it all and will not ususally know the full contents of the law/ bill. the whole system is corrupted and also been misused. but until you and other like you see wto change the system, no matter whos in office , the cheat factor will exist. CONSIPIRACY NUT JOB? calling names, superior attitude, you neither sound educated , accurate or Itellectual, sorry ..this is an opinion based on facts derived from your banter. I know you not , but you although seek the same goals as I , are a poor representative of truth n wisdow. Get you facts and attitude right , so we can fight together for JUSTICE.|
1. The president is not responsible for BP. The oil spill was created by bad engineering and poor choices. The presidnets responsibilty is -federal level, administrative mgmt of the federal resources and provide leadership in the analysis and measured responce in relation to the citizens,environment, and those realted issues that will affect the country. BP is private, the goof is therwes, they are required to fix it, the Presidnet canot force them to work faster, harder or anything other than legally, thats the job to exceed this means intruding directly into private industry- which is again whta we are not seeking as file sharers.
2. BP's ceo knows nothing of the dailies and choices made as he is CEO of a tech company and CEO's arent tech. He sits around, puts a "face " on things, hob nobs and signs papers. He should do better in leadership as it is his company, but he was probaly out yachting or similar when decisions were being made. Ease up on him a liitle. Not much -but a little. Whos the enginers? they should be under fire. the PE who signed off on systems and installations, then examine the materials and suppliers, get to the bottom of this. as far as the leak, they all are lying to protect money. Ther shoudl have been a summit- since this involved the environment- engineers should have been brought from everywhere to commnet and advise on the stopping the well flow. (seeking the best and ideal answers.) Volunteers must underrstand, the money part, as BP and anyone will balk at future lawsuits based on exposure to the oil/ and chemicals duting clean up. so volunteeers are being denied. BP wants tyo stay in business and not lose face. They want to fix it themselves( greed). and the other oil co's are quiet, afraid because so far they have the same plans, designs and plans of action. they want to raise prices, but are afraid of the image. especially if the same incident should happen to them. again rich "euro's"-
(sorry no minotities here as owners-just showpieces)the love of money-no one wants to take a real loss. the oil retrieved shall still be sold. the profits made in oil are enough to cover the losses in oil and clean up costs- do your research.
|Sweet_T: sorry my LAdy: some corrections are in order. I beg to differ on your assesment.|
"Obama is a joke. Only reason he is in office is because acorn,african americans needed a black leader"-Mr./ President Obama was elected by the votes of millions of citizens of the United States, by definition of vote counting. African Americans make up 10% of the population. Acorn is a organization of limited size. Together their total number would not eqaual enough votes to elect a President. Its mathematically impossible-UNLESS its an electoral win & no majority of popular votes-(where have we seen that before?). So the president of the US was elected by a lot of people seeking change from the policies and circumstances which led to the meltdown, the mortgage problem, the war, many things which we forgot was terrrible and the precursor and foundation of whats going on now. To say acorns and african americans elected the president is insulting and a genuine diswervice to the american people, the world which cheered and embrased the change and simple mathematics...
yes its all BS.. its about money. Until we either chg the system(laws-courts) or get the more affluent among us to change thier habits of paying just because they have money, then downloads will become more and more restricted and impossible. Coincidentally same reason why marijuana is illegal- although million of users, no deaths, too much money to be made...its all about money folks...oh btw..its the rich who coincidentally are mostly "wealthy" or a business who can have this kind of money and not be questioned or investigated on the wealth. any one else would be investigated. the upper echelon is the problem, money the motive, this is as it was in europe and asian for over a thousand years..simply put a class war (we have no ROBIN HOOD). Face it we need beter tech to outdistance the chasers,users groups, ip hiding,shadow networks, to have a chance at JUSTICE. They will always seek to stop anything which keeps them from gaining more profit. Despite 4 trips to monaco, a tour of Israel and a rolex-gold plated, cellphone, gps, with a golf ball finder attachment, they never have enough, and need us to support their financial gain.
I dont download- not enough disk space- but support the rights of those who share.
dont give up. Hope is like faith. Both are based on the "unseen and unfounded". hope isnt guaranteed to come true. but keeps us to the positive still seeking justice and truth despite what we've seen of life.
Hollywood is filled with both republican and democrat-the commonality here is money. Do no expect those who have access to money, ability to get large amounts of money, who want to live a superior lifestyle and so called "suceed" to understand your and my needs. They have money. They want more. The public is the cash cow. Movies and music can be sold amillion times over, the same product, of both high and low quality. They dont care all that matters is the revenue. As times change they will fight progress, use words like capitalism. but the Star Trek worrld of everything free, lots of resources will never come. They will fight to keep money as again, they can live bettr while you and I will not.
Thats why the poor and down trodden are left with Hope and Faith. Something to hang on to in hard times. No one man can do it all. we have Congress and Senate, corporations, businesses, banks and the people. They all must work together for change..it takes very little effort from any small faction to disrupt and minimize the drive and effects of change. There is no one man/ president who can provide change...it will take a mass of US working together.
|after all that ranting. the reason why Obama's poll numbers continue to take a nose dive. Is because he continues to govern against the will of America. Thus is the same reason why he is only a 1 term president. Obama will leave office in about 2 years with the lowest approval rating in the history of Untied States. Jimmy Carter will become the 2nd worst president of all time....the approval numbers have already dipped as low as 41%. Obama: " for those of you who did not vote for me, give me time to win you over." Times up.|
|oh and btw Al Sharpton : "it's obvious that americans voted for socialism, when they voted for Obama."||
