Los ISP franceses espiarán a sus clientes para luchar contra la "piratería"
Qué negras se ponen las cosas... Y aún así, no se me agota la inquebrantable confianza que tengo en el progreso de la red y la libertad de circulación de la información, frente al ridículo que llevan tiempo haciendo gobiernos e industria, atrincherados en posiciones mentales del siglo pasado. Como decía el poeta: VENCERÉIS, PERO NO CONVENCERÉIS. Y, mucho me temo por ellos, ni tan sólo vencerán.
The Association of the French ISPs (AFA) agreed to propose concrete
solutions to stop illegal downloading, following the discussion on 3 October
2007 with the Commission fighting Internet piracy led by Denis
Olivennes. The solutions included the introduction of a system to detect the
Internet users that illegally post copyrighted contents on the Internet.
During the meeting with the Commission, AFA suggested the introduction of a
system to detect the Internet users that illegally post copyrighted contents
on the Internet, such as music or movies, based on "radar" robot
computers that would react as if their users wanted to download content on
P2P networks. The system would use different ISP accounts and
dynamic addresses in order to keep anonymous. The Association did not
however want to monitor the system suggesting that it should be placed
outside the ISPs networks. The system "must be administered by a police
authority as it touches questions of individual liberty" stated Dahlia
Kownator, AFA general delegate .On the other hand the association opposed
to any type of content filtering which is considered an inefficient tool,
especially as regards the encrypted transmission .
Another suggestion made by the AFA was that warning messages could
be sent to Internet users by a public authority as it was done in the US.
AFA also agreed to contraventions as a last measure, but with the parallel
development of legal opportunities to buy content on the Internet.
The idea of contraventions is favoured however by the National Union of the
Phonographic that hopes the idea will be resumed. Not surprisingly its
General Director, Hervé Rony considers there is the need of rapid sanctions
for the Internet user who makes illegal downloads. He believes that there
should be a legal way to fine such downloading, something similar to a fine
ISPs favourable to anti-pirates "radars" (only in French, 5.10.2007)
