Kiwi Authors Group Calling for Imposing P2P Tax on ISPs

Maggie Tarver, the CEO of Society of Authors, compared this suggestion to the licensing system already used by photocopiers where the entity they’re located in should pay a fee to allow users make copies of copyrighted material. Tarver emphasizes that this plan can make sure that rights owners are compensated for unauthorized file-sharing going undetected too.

While Commerce Select Committee of New Zealand is taking public input on the country’s Copyright Amendment Bill, the Society of Authors, uniting the authors of the written word, starts pushing for resolving its own problems. Its CEO told the committee that it has to consider the implementation of a blanket licensing regime, also known as ISP tax, in order to make sure that rights owners will be compensated for unauthorized file-sharing remaining undetected.

The Copyright Amendment Bill, developed to replace Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment Act asking for permanent disconnection of repeat infringers, changes the rate of severity and now threatens file-sharers with temporary suspension for six months and damages of $10,000 per each case of infringement. The current version of the Bill received almost unanimous support right in the first reading this past spring.

The Society of Authors compares the proposed tax to the one used by the country’s Universities having photocopiers, where the entities hosting them pay a licensing fee to provide students a possibility to photocopy the copyrighted material. Of course, the case with Internet would be much more complicated, as here the industry deals not just with institutions and companies, but also with individuals, ISPs and international parties. The government should bear this in mind.

Why the Society is so anxious about the Bill is because they are afraid it will forget about the damage peer-to-peer networks will do to authors, because digital e-books now become extremely popular, and the legislation is supposed to look to the future.

On the yonder side there is InternetNZ, a non-profit outfit dedicated to protecting the web. It criticized the proposal of an ISP tax, pointing out to total revenues for the entertainment industry that increase every year.

With the country’s copyright holders asking for temporary Internet disconnection and an ISP tax, it’s clear that an Internet connection won’t ever be a fundamental right in the country.

menahunie avatarJeez if I fart the ET Theme from my arse; what?
Is some one gonna pop outta the wood work and slap a tax sticker on it for "copyright" violation.

This is a first step in censorship called "copyright" protection.
What you'll have is educational institutions setting their teaching criculum around what books to buy so as to not get screwed by "associations" representing book writers..

What is going on is the regulation of what you will see; hear and do.

Just remember this people; when you make things difficult for people, they go else where. This means you make if more expensive to READ; then more people will just watch the Telly; but that will also get you in the end for copyright enforcement.
These people consider allot of people who use torrents to see their favorate TV shows - when and where they choose too; as pirates as this control greedy bastard freaks call us.
