Copyright holders would have to tell ISPs how much financial damage they suffer from alleged digital copyright infringements, under an amendment proposed to the Digital Economy Bill.

The amendment, proposed by Lord Lucas, says that “copyright infringement reports” - which record labels and movie studios would send to to ISPs, detailing instances of alleged abuse by a customer - must also “set out the value of the infringement on the basis described in the initial obligations”.

The cartels quoting an estimated figure of their losses is one thing. Showing how they arrived at those figures is another. People have always been able to lie about figures to try to prove any case they want. What's needed is a common sense approach. If that happens it will mean some of the earlier statements, as regards losses, given out by the cartels are going to look very silly indeed,and very over exaggerated.
