I am pleased to announce that today marks the beginning of the implementation phase of the Copyright Alert System (CAS). Implementation marks the culmination of many months of work on this groundbreaking and collaborative effort to curb online piracy and promote the lawful use of digital music, movies and TV shows. The CAS marks a new way to reach consumers who may be engaging in peer-to-peer (P2P) piracy and I am excited that our new website features information on the CAS, the Independent Review Process, copyright, P2P networks, and numerous consumer oriented legal sources for music, movies and television shows.Five Major U.S. Net Providers Launch Copyright Alert System [copyrightinformation.org]
Over the course of the next several days our participating ISPs will begin rolling out the system.
Our members include artists and content creators like the members of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as well as independent filmmakers and record producers represented by the Independent Film and Television Alliance (IFTA) and the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM), and 5 major Internet service providers – AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon. Our leadership also includes an Advisory Board made up of consumer advocates, privacy specialists and technology policy experts.
Love to know how many of the people involved in these organisations also have money invested in Pinterest..
And I would love to know what they think about Google's and Bing's Image Search copyright violations and bandwidth theft.
One way to find out- once the system is rolled out, start filing reports against Pinterest, Google, and Bing.
become a formidable block with clout
So all the leachers will do is move to an ISP not participating in the scheme
this is VERY different from sharing a movie, or a song online. ... it has nothing to do with scraping websites.
Some don't have the money to buy the movie or the song it is not free... It has more to do with financial capabilities.
Um, please correct me if I have misinterpreted what you wrote, but it sounds like you're saying it's okay to steal something if you don't have the money to pay for it?
How is it any different?
those who get the shared content mainly do not have the money to buy it.
If you don't have the money to by the admission ticket then the extra eye won't hurt the painting or the museum.
It's ok to share what you have with a friend who has no money.
Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal interviewed EFF lawyer Fred von Lohmann about the Jammie Thomas-Rasset case, and von Lohmann noted that the RIAA had so far "targeted about 35,000 people, many of whom seemed to settle usually in the neighborhood of between $3,000-$5,000."
Practically speaking, this means our content partners will begin sending notices of alleged P2P copyright infringement to ISPs, and the ISPs will begin forwarding those notices in the form of Copyright Alerts to consumers.
The movie and music industry needs to realize that those into copying movies would not pay them even if they could not get it online,
Let's look at this model for the music industry
Regardless, if you want to stick with the "It's okay to steal something if you can't afford it" position, it's your right.
But I don't think you will find much sympathy here.
