President of the Recording Industry Association of America Cary Sherman said recently they were looking forward to the law formalizing the “voluntary” cooperation between rights owners and service providers to tackle unauthorized file-sharing. Moreover, they want such cooperation to extend to advertisers, payment processors, and search engines.
Another day, another announcement from the RIAA, keeping telling and doing the things more disturbing than ever before. For example, recently the RIAA President Cary Sherman told the public at a Technology Policy Institute forum held in Aspen, Colorado that the DMCA is completely failing rights owners. He insists that the Digital Millennium Copyright Act needs to be revised and include another provision allowing Internet service providers and others to filter the web of copyrighted content.
Cary Sherman said that day that the DMCA was not working for content people. All the infringements can’t be monitored on the Internet, because it’s just not possible. The music industry isn’t able to search all the locations containing infringing material, like cyberlockers, as it appears new every second.
That is the exact reality of the new digital world, but the RIAA would prefer to make another attempt to break the Internet to satisfy its own economic demands rather than to give it a try and figure out how to adapt to the new reality. Everyone understands there’s no way to completely stop the unauthorized transfer of copyrighted content short of information packet inspection.
The RIAA President highlights that they are looking for a “voluntary” cooperation with broadband providers, and even advertisers, search engines, and payment processors. They believe such co-operation would help stop unauthorized file-sharing. The only thing, he believes, they lack now is the law that would encourage this kind of cooperation, though not mandate it.
In fact, the story of the RIAA’s partnership with ISPs is not a long one, if any. Two years ago the outfit claimed to switch from its strategy of fighting individual file-sharers to cooperation with service providers to filter copyrighted content and disconnect repeat infringers (in other words, implement voluntary “three-strikes” regime. So far no ISPs have chosen to cooperate with the RIAA, and you can guess why. So why can’t the RIAA?

|Thanks Sam, great article as usual. They still don't get it do they. At least they're realising the futility of chasing the single little guys, but the only way of making the ISP's co-operate is to buy them out and own a monopoly, which isn't going to happen neither. RIP RIAA.|
|What a load of utter claptrap and total bullshit! |
I guess ZERO ISPs will EVER cooperate with the RIAA . . . .
The main thing is it is impossible for ISPs or anyone else to distinguish between 'copyright' and non-copyright packets of data, and no sooner than fileserve or rapidshare or hotfile delete a download, it appears as if by magic as a TORRENT and if one of these got blocked 10 or 100 more would appear very quickly afterwards!
The RIAA might as well tear out all their appendages as actually do ANYTHING. If they try to stop anything IT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN! DRM for example just inconveniences or menaces legitimate users! There are cleverer or at least as clever people out there who do NOT work for copyright industries. . .
So basically S*D OFF you PATHETIC RIAA MORONS! Take one over-size baton and beat the cr*p out of your bollocks if you have any, and stick the baton up your oversized stretch-wrinkled as*h*les!
|As been mentioned before hear the RIAA and MPAA and others are tired of wasting their millions chasing after people so they are demanding ISP's waste their own money for them.|
You will see the ISP's hopefully band together and boot the RIAA, MPAA and crooked politicians in the ass. Hey were are talking about at least 64,000,000.00 RIAA and MPAA and other demand they spend chasing after really unfounded "copyright Violations". We already have seen people not even downloading get violations and the RIAA and MPAA said oops my bad...
|Menahunie's comments are ALWAYS worth a read. And I almost always agree. But chazzo125, that last line of yours belongs in a book of poetry or something. Awesome stuff!||
