EU looking to revamp internet downloading rules

Could be something interesting

| Connectivity & Communications News | Posted: Jul 9, 2009 5:04 pm

While searching around I stumbled across this little bit of news on how the EU is planning to revamp its rules for internet downloads. Now, thinking about the way that most governments handle any kind of technology questions I thought this would be something very funny to read and might while away a few minutes with a nice grin at the end.

 

This was not the case, as I started to read what I found was that, for a change, this could be something good. In the article it stated that the growing prevalence of Internet Piracy represented "a vote of no-confidence in existing business models and legal solutions. It should a wake-up call for policy makers,"

 

This is a staggering statement as it is exactly what most "casual pirates" rant about time and time again.

 

If this is not more political posturing it is possible that a "best of both worlds" solution could finally hit the EU. This would be a situation where both the consumer and the content creator can benefit. Perhaps in the process they can throw in a bone for the original content creators, out of the content distributors share of course.
