Government plans to tackle worldwide music pirates

Government plans to tackle worldwide music pirates

Culture secretary Andy Burnham has announced plans to develop a memorandum of understanding with other governments in a bid to conquer illegal music downloads and save the ailing music industry.

The plan is part of a five part strategy that includes getting both the US and European government on board with the UK’s goal to cut illegal downloads by up to 80 per cent.

Burnham’s comments come as industry experts reveal that the music industry must learn from the ‘dark side of the internet’ if it is ever to recover from the fight against piracy.

At the annual industry gathering in the south of France in January, executives revealed that they  needed to relinquish more control and could even pick up some ideas from the pirates - people who have created services to download music illegally - who they are fighting.

Burnham said that the only way the government could successfully achieve its goal was to have an international consensus that would create worldwide internet guidelines.

Success also requires that the industry, from internet service providers to music companies, to work together to offer legal download alternatives and the vigilance to crackdown on piracy, according to Burnham.

The culture secretary has also made calls to extend the copyright term on sound recordings from 50 to 75 years as well as the creation of more rehearsal spaces in the UK and various music programmes in schools.

In Lord Carter's interim Digital Britain report, the government said that legislation would be introduced to force ISPs to notify illegal downloaders that they are breaking the law.
ISPs will also be asked collect anonymous data on the worst offenders along with personal details, on receipt of a court order, so that rights holders can seek to take legal action.
