Illegal File Sharers Promised "Fair Hearing"

The European Parliament and Council will make a decision about the Telekom’s Reform Package in late November. With the package they want to make sure that users from all 27 EU states are put trough a “fair and impartial” procedure before they are disconnected from the services of their provider.

Fair Trial

After regulations from all Europe’s telecoms are examined the ruling will take form as an amendment 138/46 as part of the Telecom’s Package. This means that the internet providers won’t have the right to disconnect the services of people who are accused of illegal file sharing.

This will, for now, stand in the way of the “three strikes” rule at least the last part of it. For those who are not familiar with the “Three strikes” rule I would just add that they were introduced after they were proposed by Peter Mandelson in the UK. The rule is simple but cruel. The first step is sending an e-mail as a warning to stop sharing and downloading, the second is a letter that says the same and the last step is disconnection from the services by the provider. But now the third step will have to wait until the decision is made in court about it.

The only problem about the whole reformulation of amendment is that it does not state clearly enough what will be meant under “fair and impartial”, to be exact it does not state anything about it. So the whole story of a “procedure” could be changed from time to time according to the relevance of the case, which in my opinion means everything but “fair”.

Monique Goyens, director general of BEUC (The European Consumers’ Organisation) said that at least all sides involved acknowledged that fundamental rights of users need to be guaranteed in the digital world. She added that all the rights will mean nothing if the “three strikes” will be enforced on national level. In France the rule was already passed under the name Hadopi law.

The whole thing sounds funny, because a recent study even suggested that about 72% of people who admit they download illegally also spend most of their money buying content legally. It shows that people already spend enough money, someone would ask what more do they want.

Lord Mandelson said while speaking at the Cabinet Forum last month that the disconnection from internet would be the “last resort”.

After saying all this, I just want to add that even if it looks like a continuing witch hunt, this little break will be good for us and them as well. We await the decision and what will it bring for us. Finger crossed guys!

SnakeyB avatarThanks Z0R4N, nowhere in your article does it state how and when Lord Mandelson invented the internet. Oh he didn't, Well I can't see how he can dictate to the EU how it is to be run. Sorry for sounding like a broken record with my posts, but if he had no input on something in the beginning, I cant see how Lord Mandelson and the likes of him can come along and tell us how it should be run.

Z0R4N avatarI know SnakeyB, the positive side in all is that those for p2p are gaining ground slowly but surely, and one day probably the corporations won't have the upper hand, and the voice of the people will be heard.:o) So I'm with you, but I'm an optimist.
