More dirty work at hand from the copyright maximalist media mafia http://www.zeropaid.com/news/88322/uk-study-isps-could-earn-304m-wbundled-music-services/
The British Phonographic Industry (BPI) is once again trying to lure in UK ISPs to help it fight illegal file-sharing on their networks, this time by releasing the results of a study it funded that found ISPs there could earn as much as £203 million ($303.9m USD) by 2013 if they launched a bundled digital music services for their subscribers.
It also said the offering would generate indirect value of more than £20m per year ($30m USD).
In response to the study UK ISP TalkTalk, which claims to be the country’s largest broadband provider with over 4.25 million customers, sarcastically thanks the BPI for its “strategic business advice,” but says the £203 million ($303.9m USD) figure glosses over the fact that it would have to criminalize the behaviors of many of its customers in an ultimately “expensive” and “futile” pursuit. It’s silly that the BPI is even offering such “innovative” ideas for others to follow when it can’t seem to come up with any for itself. It’s like getting workout tips from a couch potato.
Besides forgetting that its the consumer who pays for their service and thus is the ultimate decision maker in the loop big monopoly media groups are always hinting to ISP companies that "bundled" media deals could be profitable for them in some undocumented fashion, despite the fact that many ISP companies already operate some form of bundling and fat cat media have already shown their unwillingness to licence such offerings when asked many times before, just what is their sleazy game ?
