Organisations band together over file sharers

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

As the French parliament votes today on its version of the ‘Three Strikes’ rule on illegal file sharing, in the UK media organisations such as the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), along with the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA), are getting together in order to pursued the government to come to a decision on file sharing.

Yet the sides are said to be divided over what to do with those internet users who continue to download illegally shared music, software and film.

The media firms want to see illegal file sharers banned from the internet, whereas the ISPs believe that banning somebody from the internet is disproportionate to the offence of downloading copyrighted material.

All parties recognise that illegal file sharing is wrong, but there is no real agreement as to what to do about it.
