British ISP Abandoned Piracy “Cap and Trade” Levy

British ISP Abandoned Piracy “Cap and Trade” Levy

UK ISP TalkTalk believes that estimating file-sharing levels on provider’s network aimed at defining technical fines is useless, because people may simply choose using undetectable methods like streaming or encrypted services.


The recent report says that the British leading royalty collection group PRS for Music is suggesting service providers to introduce either a negative or a positive “spillover” approach to unauthorized file-sharing on ISPs’ networks. Of course, this suggestion couldn’t make any ISP happy, and TalkTalk is not an exception.

The first part of the suggestion is a kind of “cap and trade” approach imposing a penalty depending on the rise and fall of piracy, while the second one means the acquisition of a blanket license, resembling that issued to broadcasters, allowing them transmitting copyrighted content.

TalkTalk said it would cause traffic monitoring, which can have huge implications if turn to privacy and data retention issues. It has called it profoundly unfair action and compared it to holding a bus company liable for shoplifters using their buses to go to those shops. Moreover, ISP pointed out it’s quite futile, because people can rapidly switch to undetectable methods, such as encrypted services or streaming.

Once again, it suggested that the industry needs to better fix its own business model rather than demand the government to fix it for them. This controversy was caused by PRS for Music’s realization that the DEA makes the UK’s Office of Communications (Ofcom) implement a methodology for monitoring the level of unauthorized file-sharing to estimate the efficiency of the Act’s measures. However, the debate didn’t take into consideration that the ratio of pirated material doesn’t equal to a lost sale, as rights owners like to announce.

In fact, recent Harvard study revealed that file-sharing can only be blamed for 20% of the reduction in music sales. The figure has been revised from an earlier result saying that it was close to zero, but anyway it can’t be compared to the 100% that entertainment industry claim P2P is responsible for.

Another conclusion came from Norwegian business school, stating that file-sharers in fact purchase 10 times as much content as they download for free.

As for the proposed levy or license, it’s difficult to imagine how much it would cost the individual Internet user…

"Another conclusion came from Norwegian business school, stating that file-sharers in fact purchase 10 times as much content as they download for free."

i think thats BS cause if you could afford to purchase 10times the amount you downloaded you wouldnt have to download anything and with me and all my friends who download stuff youd be extremely lucky if we purchased 10% never mind 10x
