Ireland will disconnect Internet users, who access to pirated content

2010-05-25

National Irish newspaper "The Irish Times" today reports that the country has earned the notorious practice of European law on "the three warnings", after which Internet users can be disconnected from Internet for downloading pirated content. The newspaper reported that the country's largest ISP Eircom fell under pressure from local representatives of the music and cinema industry, blamed the provider of aiding pirates.

The Irish Times wrote that against the ISP was launched huge law firm, in respect of the provider in a week of film and music studios was applied for 50 claims. In part of the lawsuits accused the provider, in other part - its customers.

The publication concludes that the decision to implement a system of "three warnings" on the part of the largest Internet service provider automatically commits to deploy something similar in other smaller companies. However, company Eircom notes that for the technical implementation of such system is necessary to introduce a new and very powerful software and hardware system, which the company yet not have.

At the same time, the Irish High Court ruled that the IP-addresses of users are not private data and the provider has the right to disclose and use for systems analysis of content. The Irish Times notes that if Eircom in near months will introduce such a system, then Ireland become the first country with forced disconnection from Internet for downloading pirated content.

Today the same system at the legislative level approved in South Korea and France, but still have not yet implemented.
