While American VP Joe Biden is talking tough about copyright protection, some key players of the American entertainment industry think they need to lobby more in order to ensure the political types support their game of helping rights holders tackle Internet piracy.
Jim Urie, the CEO of Universal Music, heads a campaign helping American entertainment industry types to begin more intensively lobbying the US government and parliament in terms of the file-sharing matter. The organization wants American politicians to begin an investigation on the measures provoked by their twins from the United Kingdom, New Zealand and France concerning fighting Internet piracy, or so-called “three-strikes” regimes forcing ISPs to get more involved into actively fighting file-sharing.
Despite Urie said they keep supporting the attempts to reach a voluntary agreement between the online companies on the anti-file-sharing techniques and a record industry, the government still needs to push on to inspire this event by threatening to implement “three-strikes” officially in case the abovementioned voluntary agreement can’t be reached.
Urie launched the campaign after receiving a great number of letters where music business representatives were reacting very enthusiastically to his recent call to action. Now, he believes, is the right time to start the action, as the record business is facing great challenges from infringers. He also thinks their duty is to help the government to respond to this crisis. What he was exactly calling for is to treat the government more aggressively when bringing attention to the consequences of piracy. That is the fight that can never be won alone. The examples given are the governments of other countries, succeeding in playing a prominent role in regulating process in dealing with ISPs. As a result, sales have improved much in all those countries (New Zealand, South Korea, the United Kingdom and France).
So the approach is like that “we hope to negotiate a voluntary deal, but at the same time we need our government representatives as a reserve". It’s not clear enough what specific measures will be done, but the American-based record label types are invited to go to the organization’s official website and read through the detailed plan.

|well here goes the land of the free next thing its going to be we have to asked to take a dunk in the US.|
|What is clear is the record Companies ie RIAA and even the MPAA do not want to do the work - proving some one is alledged infringer. They are working to require the ISP's to do all the work for them..|
So what they hope to do is dump enough money? "artists" fans money into the pockets of crooked politicians in the name of copyright protection.
It has been said and proven over and over the business model these companies use are outdated and unworkable because these models are nothing more than to control the "artists" AND THE CLIENTS - you and I.
These companies blame P2P for loss of hugh amounts of money; yet when these companies are pressed to prove these losses THEY CAN NOT PROVIDE TRUE DOCUMENTATION. They can and do only provide WHAT THEY THINK THE LOSSES ARE...
Any one and I mean any one who goes into a court WILL LOSE; except the elities of this sociaty who consider laws of evidence and proof not applicable to them; yet hold these requirements to you and I.
What is happeneing is what WE the P2P'er ALL KNOW. The "artists" are leaving these companies and producing and distributing their "ART FORM" to you and I via P2p or the direct sales over the internet. Remember on group who put out and album and all they asked was pay what you thing it was worth? Allot of people involved in the record companies laughed at them for doing this; but this rock group had the last laugh ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK. They made over TEN MILLION DOLLARS IN ONE WEEK. NOT ONE PENNY WENT TO THOSE GREEDY BASTARDS IN THE RECORD INDUSTRY...
The record Companies and yes even the Movies Industry ( Technology has made it where YOU can make your own movie ) see ALL THAT MONEY AND CONTROL SLIPPING AWAY..
This is why these record companies are foaming and thrashing around to destroy anyone who doesn't go with THEIR PLAN.
This include P2p'ers and YOU...
|well said menahunie...i'm with you. the artist you're referring to is "radiohead" and they caught 1.2 million d/l's sold on the day of the release with an estimated 10 mil grossed in less then a week. lets hope others follow suit..|
|oh..i forgot to mention. the average price paid per d/l was $6.|
|Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”,|
after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.
