UK ISPs Outraged by Being Forced to Pay to Protect Copyright

One of the largest UK ISPs TalkTalk said it is absolutely rampageous for the Britain’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to require service providers to pay 25% of the expenses on enforcing the measures stipulated by Digital Economy Act, which final aim is to fight copyright infringement in the Internet. In addition, TalkTalk points out that it’s completely unfair to demand service providers to bear the costs of the entertainment industry attempts to enforce their own copyright, because all this costs would be transferred to their customers.


As you might remember, not long ago the country’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has taken the decision to split the cost of enforcing the DEA‘s measures between copyright owners and Internet service providers at a ratio of 75:25. While the government’s Minister for Communications claims such a decision is proportionate to everyone involved, many of the “involved” can disagree with this. The main reason is the fact that whatever the breakdown is, all costs would be finally transferred to consumers. In fact, ordinary people will be required to pay for protecting the outdated business model of the movie and music industries.

That’s why TalkTalk considers the decision absolutely outrageous – both service providers and their customers would somehow be forced to bear the expenses of the entertainment industries to protect their own copyright, which is just manifestly unfair. The content belongs to the rights holders, and if they think it is being accessed illegally, it’s they trouble and they should pay to solve it all by themselves.

The truth is that the consumers would have to pay for the entire cost of enforcing the law anyway, but there’s a difference of whose customers they are. People using Internet just for emailing and chatting would somehow be required to subsidize the movie and music industries’ efforts, even if they aren’t interested in films and music. Meanwhile, the consumers of the entertaining content would be required to pay 75% of the cost (as the industry would pass the expenses to consumers too), even if they don’t own a computer; or the entire 100% if they use Internet for any purposes. The most outrageous fact is that the industry wants the consumers to pay for efforts aimed at extracting as much money from the same consumers as possible!
