the internet as imagined in 1969. some of the concepts are spot on, but the analog execution of it all is amusingly ridiculous.

Secret Copyright Treaty Details Leak: ISPs Worldwide to Become Copyright Cops?

New negotiations for an international Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) kick off today, and this round focuses on a secretive Internet piracy plan drafted by the U.S government. No text has been released, but leaks have surfaced. It’s not looking good.

The leaks suggest that countries who sign up to the U.S promoted plan would have to force ISPs to proactively police copyright on user-generated content, cut off those accused (or face liability), and put “graduated response” clauses in customer contracts. An example of a graduated response is France’s “three strikes and you’re out” law. There, you get two warnings if caught sharing music or movies, then you’re banned for up to two years.

This provision would mean that every country that signs up to ACTA must allow content owners such as record companies and Hollywood studios to sue ISPs for failing to stop their subscribers from illegally sharing copyright-protected material such as music and movies.

By the way, two major sources of counterfeiting—Russia and China—aren’t in the talks.

ISPs really shouldn’t be forced to police the internet. but even if these new policies were implemented, someone somewhere will find a way around it. viva la piracy. viva la free media. viva people and bands like this.
