The IFPI (International Federation Phonographic Industry) announced today a new round of lawsuits against 1,872 alleged P2P pirates. Compared to the RIAA's campaign, the IFPI has spaced their copyright enforcement efforts quarterly rather than monthly. The last round of IFPI lawsuits occurred back in November 2005, when approximately 2,000 alleged pirates were targeted.
Whether the IFPI’s efforts are working remains questionable. What are not in question are the BPI’s (British Phonographic Industry) continued losses, which equated to over 1 billion pounds in the last three years and continue to rise. An interesting conundrum that questions how losses can continue to mount if actions against P2P users - the assumed cause of such loss - is a purported success.
