The MPAA's Wishlist For The Obama Presidency
Filters, three strikes and you're out anti-piracy policies...
by Karl Bode 06:26PM Wednesday Dec 10 2008
The transition team of President-elect Barack Obama, in an interesting effort at transparency, has been publicizing all of their meetings with interest groups to their website, and that includes any material being presented by those groups (with public feedback). Whether that accomplishes anything remains to be seen, but it does allow us to see, oh, things like what the MPAA's demands from the Obama Presidency will be. Within the MPAA's wish list (pdf) are requests for "automated detection and removal of infringing content" (ISP filters) and a desire to see the U.S. adopt efforts similar to those recently implemented in the UK and France ("three strikes" polices where your broadband connection is terminated upon the receipt of three DMCA warnings).

Re: My Wishlist For Obama

Obama may or may not be an American citizen, but his stated principles and politics are the polar opposite of the those the United States was founded on—so he can go bugger himself no matter where he was born.

Oh what, a system that can be manipulated to frame a printer isn't good enough for you, huh?

Re: 3 Strikes and You're Out

The problem is MPAA would just send out warnings without proof. Historically their tactics have been very shady.
