Enforcing three strikes could cost ISPs millions

Internet access providers willing to take part in the RIAA's new initiative against file sharing should take notice of some new reports from France: The French business paper Les Echos reported in late Feburary that French ISPs expect to spend up to 16 million dollars per year on enforcing the country's proposed three strikes regulations, according to a summary report compiled by my colleagues from Futurezone. France has been on the forefront of this approach that aims to send warning notices to file sharers and punish repeat infringers with cutting off their Internet connection. Three strikes was originally based on a voluntary cooperation between ISPs and the music industry, but rights holders have been pushing for this to become an enforceable law for over a year now. A bill requiring providers to cooperate with record labels could be discussed in the French parliament as early as next week. The Paris-based daily La Liberation "estimates" that the bill could trigger around 10,000 warning e-mails, 3000 letters and 1000 decisions about Internet cut-offs per day. However, non-compliance wouldn't exactly come cheap for ISPs either. The current bill wants to fine ISPs more that 6000 dollars per declined warning message or unenforced cut-off request.

An interesting article. It shows that the music industries "Knights in shining armour" (Don't you just love sarcasm) could create huge additional costs for the ISPs. I wonder how keen they would be if they had to reimburse ISPs for all those additional costs?. All these extra costs will of course eventually be passed on by ISPs to all users pirates or not !!!!!  There's no wonder that the vast majority of ISPs around the world don't intend to cooperate with the music industry.

I can almost see most ISPs ignoring this policy unless it was being really pressured by the RIAA.
