FOX FILMS: We Should Disconnect File-Sharers Like France

CEO Jim Gianopulos says punishing repeat offenders is necessary to create “a level playing field” for independent filmmakers, those, it claims, hurt hardest by piracy.

Fox Filmed Entertainment CEO Jim Gianopulos believes the US should follow France’s lead and impose a “three-strikes” system disconnecting repeat file-sharers from the Internet.

He said that internet piracy is the single biggest threat to the worldwide film industry, and that independent films are the hardest hit.

Speaking to a news conference in Athens, Greece, the country that’s ironically the birthplace of democracy and free speech, he told the audience about the state of piracy that “the bad news is that the internet is big, and it’s anonymous.”

That’s why ISPs must be forced to track down the IP addresses of suspected file-sharers and sanction them.

“If we can do that, it would be a big victory against piracy,” he said, and would help create a “level playing field” for independent filmmakers who he claims are the hardest hit by piracy

Strange that it was only a few days ago that an independent film maker praised the internet and piracy for promoting his film. This in turn created a much larger paying audience than he could have reasonably expected. It seems that Fox are being very selective in who they listen to.

As low as they can go since it's a "cart before the horse" situation. They can't get it done one way, so they try to do it another way to claim justification for the original way that they couldn't get it done.
