RIAA Opposed Reasonable Copyright Bill

Another anti-piracy legislation suggested to the US Congress hasn’t been approved by the Recording Industry Association of America. The bill in question is called the OPEN Act, and the RIAA claimed it would do nothing to stop copyright infringement on the Internet and might even make the problem worse.


The entertainment industry seems to be apparently eager to kill the bill in question until it includes more draconian punishments and draws up the American Constitution to provide it with total control. The Recording Industry Association of America believes that the bill can’t provide a workable framework, standards, or remedies. In other words, it can’t be supported by those it purports to protect.

OPEN bill is sponsored by Rep. Darrell Issa and Senator Ron Wyden. The suggested legislation is trying to shift enforcement against “notorious” websites to the International Trade Commission (ITC). In case the ITC decided a service was dedicated to infringement, the domain name would be cut off from the US advertising and payment intermediaries. Nevertheless, the Recording Industry Association of America is worried that this will take too much time to happen and indeed, the International Trade Commission might actually carry out an investigation instead of taking its word as proof of infringement. Thus, the process envisioned by OPEN law could allow for endless submissions by services like Google in order to slow down the process.

In addition, the music industry also warned that the need to hire an attorney to navigate the commission’s legal process could put justice out of reach for small companies. It isn’t clear, however, which small business could be interested in taking down a pirate website to the cleaners. Thus far, there has been no case with a family business trying to take down a file-sharer. Instead, the main prosecutor has always been the content industry.

The Recording Industry Association of America also claimed that it was virtually impossible to prove that a website infringed willfully as the suggested bill required. The RIAA’s statement says that OPEN bell needs to be scrapped, and both the stakeholders and Congress should start over with a fresh look at addressing this problem.
