Postage, stationery - and mobile - this excludes.
Letter model, which rightholders and more politicians in Denmark hopes to introduce, will cost 10 million dollars over the next three years. Alone in system costs.
It turns consultant Netplan calculation ComON had access to at the Culture Ministry. The note was commissioned by the Ministry.
The memo also reveals that the licensees expect to send up to 50,000 letters a year to suspected file sharers. There are approximately 2.5 million Danish households with internet, which amounts to 2 out of 100 households receiving a warning letter a year - excluding any letters to companies.
The plan is that the model letter will serve as an active information campaign - in contrast to the passive TV commercials, as right holders to date have used. Deeds must get more to stop illegal file sharing and instead buy movies and music legally.
Suspected netpirate must receive two warning letters where they are told that they must not watch movies and listen to music without paying for the right to it. Then, they risk the bailiffs come out and seize the computer - Asked by rights holders.
The letters must not officially seen as a "acceleredende enforcement process", but nevertheless looks right holders letters as aggravating. Lawyers have previously against ComON estimated that the letters may be evidence in lawsuits against file sharers.
Rights holders and ISPs scramble time about who should pay the bill for letter model. Pr.brev price will vary greatly. For small ISPs, the price range up to 294 Danish per. letter writing Netplan in the analysis. For the large ISPs are the price down to 12 Danish. The average cost of a letter 68 Danish to put the address of.
The price covers only the cost of 16 Danish ISPs to establish a system to find identity on netpirate. Added to be included postage, paper, labor and right-leases with the model. The actual price for the model alone exceeds by far the 10 million kronor.
And mobile WiMax are exempted
Letter model, which underlies the memo covers only between 65 percent and 70 percent of the Danish Internet customers today. That's because Netplan not include mobile networks. As ComON previously described, mobile networks pose problems because they do not assign a static IP address to network users. Netplan are unable to assess what it would cost to get mobile users in the model. In Netplan note is the mobile data modem connection, public WiFi, WiMax and small antenna under TDC excluded.
By contrast, Internet customers over the phone line (xDSL), fiber network and cable television with in letter model. Netplan assesses the vast majority of piracy takes place on those lines.
"... With regards to mobile broadband, we have chosen to assume that these systems are hardly used at present in any significant degree of illegal copying. We are therefore not these systems further in this memo." writes Netplan.
Priorities are, however, unlike in the EU system, where rightholders lobbyists say that music consumption of mobile broadband is growing, as telecommunications companies have confirmed.
Netplan memo also takes into account that 30 percent of TDC's IP addresses actually belong to customers of the 15 companies that rent space on TDC's network.
Here is the cost
Consultant assumes that ISPs must create bar-identity databases, abbreviated LID database, and queries to get the identity behind an IP address to be exchanged using an XML interface.
ISPs will also each create repeat databases, containing information that a subscriber has already received two letters. The database may contain unique identification of the customer, time of previous notices / warnings and warning from nature.
It is not clear from the note on telecommunications companies to send letters, or whether an independent board to send them.
Netplan have anticipated that a small ISP must purchase a server for 30,000 Danish , while a major supplier to buy a server to 70,000 Danish. There must also spend money on a standard software, including Microsoft SQL Server 2008. A small provider must use the 150 consultant hours, while a great need 300 hours, to develop the system that are fairly simple. The animal is not to develop the system but to adapt the individual service providers, writes Netplan. Individual providers may save money to make a system together, writes Netplan, which does not have an estimate of any savings resulting from the cooperation. With the price of 10 million is the cost of electricity, rent, network connectivity and cooling - and a part-time employee of the operation.
The cost of printing, enveloping and sending of letters is not included in the memo. According to an email exchange between the Ministry of Culture and Netplan ISPs have not had major objections to the cost analysis results.
A draft of the proposals made by the Culture Ministry's anti-piracy committee ComON previously had access, shows that the licensees expect that a certain percentage of letter recipients would address the problem and stop file sharing.
"It is also clear that an information letter is not likely to have significant influence on the conduct required of a more professional violators of copyrights," according to the draft.
source google comon if want the price in $$$$$$$$$$$$ then just say 30000x5 ect then you get a kinda price for what its gonna cost the ISP in denmark its not cheap and i know they dont wanna pay for it all alone so lets see what other contry comes out with so one danish is about give or take 5.5 $ so do the equation
Many thanks,nice post
tho the best of it is when you take the cost of this,then the cost of any prosecutions v's the money recouped from winning the trials in court,there is no/little money left to give to preforming artists/studios that we (filesharers) are supposidly taking from them thro lost sales/revenue.
Box office revenue in Denmark for 2009 - 131m EURO,($172 million,£110 mil),
Average budget for a film production in Denmark 2009 - 2.4million Euro($3.1 mil,£2 mil).
So as you can see from these figures,in Denmark alone they would have budgets to make 4 more films and still have some change left over instead of spending money on these letters.
