blog Well, that was short-lived. The anti-piracy plan mooted by many of Australia’s ISPs last week has already been reportedly knocked back by several major organisations representing the content industries. The AustralianIT reports today that Australian Content Industry Group spokeswoman Vanessa Hutley had this to say about the plan (for the full article, including comment from Foxtel, click here):
“ACIG does not think the scheme proposed by the Communications Alliance and its members creates a balanced process and it falls well short of the expectations we had had for an open, balanced and fair solution.”
Well, she would say that, wouldn’t she. As so many readers had predicted, the content industry does not believe the ISPs’ plan goes far enough. Aaaaaand … we’re back at square one. Or is this the beginning of a beautiful negotiation?
