Australia’s Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Stephen Conroy unveiled a report titled “Australia’s Digital Economy: Future Directions” recently that outlines the areas of focus for government, industry and the community to “maximize the benefits of the digital economy for all Australians.”

“The digital economy is essential to Australia’s productivity, global competitive

standing and improved social well being,” reads the foreword, written by Conroy himself.

He hopes that the report can be used as a template for the creation of a healthy digital economy for Australia, part of which being the need for govt to “facilitate development of an appropriate solution to the issue of unauthorized file

“File-sharing is cited by the content industry as a barrier to further investment in sustainable and innovative content initiatives in Australia,” read the report. “One solution proposed by copyright owners is a ‘three strikes’ or ‘graduated response’ proposal under which copyright owners would work together with ISPs to identify the ISP’s customers who are suspected of unauthorized file sharing and the ISP would then send a notice on behalf of the copyright owner to that customer advising of this allegation. After multiple notices, a series of escalated steps could be taken with respect to the customer’s account.”

Steve ought to stop listening to people who don't know what they're talking about. He ought to also not associate banning file sharing with a healthy digital economy; it would have quite the reverse effect, I'd say. I have yet to hear from Steve how he plans to differentiate between 'illegal' file sharing and legal file sharing. To Steve, all file sharing is illegal by definition, even though I have thousands of public domain or owner-permitted files that say otherwise.
I presume the 'Content Industry' means the Cartel. They don't invest; they take from the artists and from the ordinary punters, making you pay repeatedly in every possible way they can think of. It's not file sharing Steve-boy needs to regulate, but the Cartel, who are the real thieves. Just because the law protects a thief doesn't make him any less a thief.
