The time came for Denmark to try again and negotiate the possible introduction of a sort of “three-strikes” file-sharing regime. Within its frame, the government considers committing the taxpayers’ money to the plan, while the Ministry of Culture considers funding a public anti-piracy campaign. Besides, matching financial contributions are expected from the movie and music industries and broadband providers.
Along with many countries throughout the globe, Denmark has faced a pressure from the music and movie industries related to unauthorized file-sharing. After the entertainment industry failed to eliminate piracy by pursuing individuals and torrent sites, it made a decision to focus on Internet service providers.
Naturally, such decision led to discontent of the broadband providers, not willing to be held liable for the activities of their subscribers and to harm customer relations. Currently, to address the problem, the Ministry of Culture created an Anti-Piracy Committee, which aim is to come to agreement on how copyright violations should be handled.
Although the negotiations between attorneys, copyright owners and broadband providers have been going on since the beginning of 2010, it was only revealed early this month that the country would choose a “three-strikes” path. However, how exactly it will do that remains unknown. Of course, the main point of discussion is about who would bear the cost.
Actually, there are only 2 models currently existing: in both of them the copyright owners will perform all the monitoring of subscribers, and an independent body assesses the evidence. Meanwhile, one model suggests ISPs to send out notifications to accused, and the other proposes to assign this task to a public body. Besides, the notifications are supposed to carry an educational message.
The representative of the Consumer Council confirmed that an agreement has been reached not to discuss the matters with the press. Nevertheless, it is clear that the consumers would inevitably be the ones who will pay for the legislation. In case the entertainment industry is chosen to bear the bill, their consumers pay. If service providers are to finance the law, their subscribers pay. Finally, if the government is chosen to pay, the taxpayers would carry the burden.
