Your ISP To Be The Next Music Copyright Cops (Chris Pirillo 13/2/09)

Post by VampiricPadraig on Sat Feb 14, 2009 5:17 pm

The music industry
is at it once again. They have sued college students, teenagers, and even a dead woman in their attempt to stop music piracy. Now they are turning to the ISP’s across the land and want them to be the new copyright police. It seems that music piracy is at an all time high and nothing seems to stem the tide. But by having ISP’s warn customers that piracy is illegal and that their accounts could be shut down, the music folks are hoping to put a stop at piracy.

According to an article over at Bloomberg it states that:

Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group Corp., EMI Group and Sony Music Entertainment have gained leverage through court and government actions to pressure ISPs into warning customers not to steal music — in some cases with a threat to cut service. Crowded networks are helping to soften U.S. and European access providers’ resistance to working with record companies.

I seriously doubt that this new tactic is going to be successful. music piracy will continue no matter what the music folks believe.
