France leads the way in common sense

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/11...common_sense/1

The French have led the way in terms of anti-piracy legislation by making the punishment by casual file-sharing consumer fit the crime committed. However, it's at some expense to online privacy.

It's a step in the right direction, but I'm not sure I'd like my ISP snooping on my traffic.
How's the snooping going to work, anyway? It'll have to be automated, and who's going to make sure that no false positives get reported? Or, as Bindi said in the article, that it is actually the owner of the line who's doing the sharing?

Sounds good in principle, I don't think it'll work in practice.

Commons sense in what to do with those caught but pushing privacy too far with the method of catching. What would really reduce privacy is proper services providing the tv, movies and music people want at a reasonable price drm-free.

Greetings!

Since ISPs will be inpecting the traffic, might as well clean all spammers and virus from it.

Also, the law also specifies that DRM ends and all movies must be released in DVD six months after the opening day in theatres.

The article claims it'd only be persistent downloaders that get smacked in the face with the law, but how does the ISP determine whether or not the user is persistently downloading, with monkeys like the RIAA and assorted other heavy handed groups threatening ISPs rather than the ISPs customer? Okay, that's only really been seen with torrent sites tracking 'illegal' files so far, but how are we to be sure that someone won't threaten to bury an ISP in paperwork for lawsuits if they don't disclose everyone downloading files that're suspicious in nature?

I don't know if anyone'll be able to read that and make heads or tails of it, but hey. I'm open to questions :B

Common sense coming from France? ... ... Yay France!


The first question for me is what traffic can / will they monitor? There are a few very valid, non-invasive uses for such statistics and a few nefarious uses for the same data. The most important question for me is who all gets to use that data and for what purpose(s) - and who will be denied access?

In the way of monitoring:
i guess they [ISPs] would just monitor the amount a person downloads and then start logging what they do.

yeah, French dubbed movies..... and of course you also want to consider that lots of stuff are more expensive around Europe than in the UK, there is stuff in the UK that costs 3/4 what it costs here and in the US there is stuff that costs 1/2 the price...... i really hate the euro and what it has done to the buying power of us Portuguese.....

sorry for the rant

/rant

on French i only have the next to say.

People here talk about common sense and yet have missed a massive incrotchment on civil liberties I could imagine, why would I want my ISP snooping through what I do or transfer on the internet? In terms of encrypted traffic whats this law do to say they cant break it and look into it? If anything this makes ISP some of the most powerful instituions in France now imo, I mean just how to they determine whos a file sharer.

Next we might as well say everyone should be fitted with a tracker so if your near a crime scene you can be identified and well what after that? I'm not saying big brother here far from it what im saying is what about your data? your details? do you really want someone who has the control to do what they like with your connection snooping about your personal traffic? Perhaps reading emails? Looking at sites youve visited? People you talk too? Perhaps even looking at encrypted data to see what youve been doing? Then where does it stop exactly?

I'd rather have bigger penalties for file sharing than that anyday.

don't fool yourself

The government already monitors most traffic in/out of the county, and most ISP's do too - how do you think they catch child pornography?

Uh, what? I appear to be missing the connection between "the RIAA etc" and "cascading style sheets [sic], frames and pictures".

No we haven't. You're naive if you don't think your data is snooped through by people in ISPs. The only protection your email has from unscrupulous eyes is the massive swathes of spam that surround it. You are just hiring a service from your ISP to route your messages to other computers around the world. There's no obligation of privacy for ISPs any more than their would be if you sent messages in the post without an envelope.

And incrotchment

Dam my sole purpose of replying was to make a joke about the French and the title of the article, but I can see its already been done to death!

I think this could be a step in the right direction, if a little misguided.
