Feds Plan to Fight Internet Piracy Like Physical Piracy

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) tells reps from the MPAA that it plans to “target the new threats enabled by the Internet in the same way that we have targeted ‘hard goods’ in the past.”

The federal govt seems to be buying into the hair brained MPAA notion that illegal file-sharing is supporting terrorism and criminal gangs.

It’s well known that physical piracy has always been about profits and that many of the same groups, as pointed out by a 2009 RAND Corporation study, that illegally trade in pirated copies of films are also involved in everything from human smuggling and document fraud to contract killing and the drug trade.

However, file-sharing is a much different animal. It’s called sharing for the simple reason that no money ever changes hands only data does. The MPAA and other copyright holder groups can’t very well wage a campaign to stop illegal file-sharing without having a certain amount of hysteria and fear to succeed, especially when its trying to get law enforcement and legislators on its side.
