The music and film lobby has rejected a Communications Alliance proposal to stem copyright piracy that lacked teeth.

The music and film lobby has rejected a Communications Alliance proposal to stem copyright piracy that lacked teeth.

The proposal was developed by Communications Alliance with five ISPs – Telstra BigPond, iiNet, Optus, iPrimus and Internode – and “collaboration” by AAPT, Ericsson Australia and the Internet Industry Association.

The scheme would have required ISPs – in response to evidence provided by copyright holders – to forward “education and warning” notices to customers whose Internet accounts had been detected undertaking piracy activity. But it lacked a system of enforcement or punishment of repeat offenders making a living from piracy.

A previously little-known body, the Australian Content Industry Group (ACIG), says it represents music and film rights content owners, who it said it would not ratify the plan.

“ACIG does not think the scheme proposed by the Communications Alliance and its members creates a balanced process and it falls well short of the expectations we had had for an open, balanced and fair solution,” said ACIG spokesperson Vanessa Hutley.
