While in Germany musicians will love for a three-strike law campaign for a Three Strike Law campaign, they are now defending themselves against such collecting experiments in England
In 1999, the music industry tried to make mood for the introduction of new prohibition rights at EU level by "Explanation" with the signatures of previously edited musicians sent such new prohibition rules allegedly heated. Although the music industry could not enforce its maximum targets, which had made any playback procedure without DRM, but the following EU directive has caused that that "Bypass technology" banned. In 2009, such a clamping at least with British musicians does not work so well.
In August, the economic Minister Lord Mandelson announced that he was convinced of the need for a Three Strike Law after the model of the French Loi Hadopi. While the Music Industry Association UK Music clapped as expected applause, a commented on the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC), the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) and the Music Producers Guild (MPG), had a comment on one of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and "non-answerable" Question catalog, in which the association pronounced in rather significant words against such measures.
The project Mandelson, who was already involved in several scandals, is, among other things, as a ruck waiting, nonsensical and (with regard to the expected consequences) "plenty" rated. The government considered to consider such tarpaulins, according to the joint opinion of the association, how far their way of thinking "removed from the public and music consumers" may be. Speaks in the explanation that you suggest the made "decided countertrete" and also in view of the effects of complaints against consumers wool, "that the whip is meanwhile no longer standing in sugar bread in any ratio".
The fact that costs for the enforcement of such a three-strike law will move to the official estimates after the first year between 65 and 85 million pounds. The benefit of 200 million pounds indicated by the Group Locomotists was hardly allowed to be realistic, according to the association, because he is based on the amption that one would be sold for every non-exchanged song.
What gained special attention is that the composing association not only represented persons like Billy Bragg, who already severely criticized monopoly and prohibition rights in the past, but among thousands of musicians, composers, texts and producers also the needle of the British Pop music like Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
Great Britain had long been a call to be a stucco in terms of music. If you look at the lobby battle for a Three-Strikes law, then you could also see this judgment currently confirmed: Not only that there is no corresponding call in the Federal Republic — instead, the rights of the rights found a three-digit number of musicians last year in the last year who will love them so impress that they signed a call for intellectual property orientation to France published as a full-sided advertisement in superregional daily newspapers.
However, compared to that of the Heidelberger appell, it remained rather transparent — which could probably also be because no Hans Magnus Enzensberger and no Robbie Williams signed, but "DJ Otzi", Egon Frauenberger, Christian Bruhn ("Heidi"), SOAPSTAR YVON CATTERFELD, "Superstar" Alexander Klaws, Ballermann-Star Mickie Krause, Scooter, Tokyo Hotel, "Atze Schroder", De Hohner, Ralph Siegel and Similar Caliber.
