Australian Government Moving Forward With Anti-Piracy Mandate For ISPs 128

angry tapir (1463043) writes Australia is moving closer to a regime under which ISPs will be forced to block access to websites whose "dominant purpose" is to facilitate copyright violations. A secret government discussion paper (PDF) has been leaked and proposes a system of website blocking and expanded liability for ISPs when it comes to "reasonable steps that can be taken ... to discourage or reduce online copyright infringement."

That's why almost everywhere in the US there is a monopoly on Cable TV and Telephone

The Fed doesn't have a thing to do with local franchise agreements.

Since the late 90s, technology has allowed telephone companies to provide TV, and cable companies to provide telephone service, so it's a duopoly all the way. Then you can throw in satellite providers of TV and internet, and cellular providers of phone and internet, and let's not forget the superior option of OTA TV antennas, and most everyone has several choices for all of the above, thanks to technology more than any regulation.

Isn't that what consumers pay Netflix for (and justly so!)? And where the hell would that work? If the ISP didn't pay the bill, then the service would fail and the consumer wouldn't pay their part of the bill either. These guys are fucking insane. A chimp eating carrots out of his own asshole makes more sense.

Reality: cable companies are afraid of Netflix because they fear the day they lose the competition with them.

And, as proof of that, starting in November, the official CAs will stop issuing those types of certs.

Not quite. As of November, the official CAs will claim that they've stopped issuing those types of certs. When something like the SSL Observatory points out that they're still issuing them, they'll say that this (and the other 8,192 times they did it) was a one-off mistake and they've updated their policies to make sure it never happens again. Then when they get caught again they'll say that it was test certificates that accidentally escaped. After that, they'll stop responding to reports. And we'll all be much, much safer, and phishing will be eradicated once and for all.

Yeah, i don't see how their supposed 'netflix is going to extort us' scare is supposed to work. Everything I remember about how the internet works pretty much invalidates the idea.

I think they're looking at how cable companies have to pay content providers to broadcast their content.

Disney, ESPN, CNN, etc all charge the cable company for their content. If the cable company doesn't pay, then their customers don't get the channels.

Will this happen with websites or Netflix? It doesn't seem possible, yet it's hard to know just where all this is going.

Consider facebook. What would happen if suddenly facebook demanded an ISP pay them for access by the ISP's customers? Who would the customers blame? Would they simply give up on facebook or would they hound their ISP to pay up?

You seem to think people are rational, or can be forced into rational thinking. This is not the case. For example, even now in times of drought and mandatory water conservation, we have HOAs attempting to enforce lawn watering rules.

To fight against this specific issue here in San Diego, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzales has been pushing for CA AB2104 which would prevent the HOA from imposing rules upon homeowners observing water regulations. It's a sad state of affairs, but NIMBYism isn't rational.
