Following their SOPA defeat three years ago, the MPAA, RIAA and ESA are again arguing that registrars need to take action against domains being used for infringing purposes. The groups told the House Judiciary Committeeâ€™s Internet subcommittee that dealing with anonymous domain registrations is also an urgent matter. One of the key aims of the now infamous SOPA legislation that failed to pass several years ago was the takedown of domains being used for infringing purposes. The general consensus outside of the major copyright groups was that this kind of provision should be rejected. However, within the movie and music industries the spirit of SOPA is still alive, itâ€™s just a question of how its aims can be achieved without giving alternative mechanisms the same name. Yesterday, during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committeeâ€™s Internet subcommittee, domains were firmly on the agenda. One group in attendance was the Coalition for Online Accountability. COAâ€™s aim is to improve online transparency and to encourage â€œeffective enforcement against online infringement of copyrights and trademarks.â€ No surprise then that its members consist of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA). COA counsel Steve Metalitzâ€™s testimony called for domain name registrars to deal with complaints effectively. Domains â€œIn recent months, there have been increasing calls from many quarters for domain name registrars to recognize that, like other intermediaries in the e-commerce environment, they must play their part to help address the plague of online copyright theft that continues to blight the digital marketplace,â€ Metalitz said. â€œUnder the 2013 revision of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), domain name registrars took on important new obligations to respond to complaints that domain names they sponsor are being used for copyright or trademark infringement, or other illegal activities.â€ However, according to Metalitz, registrars are not responding. The COA counsel said that the RAA requires registrars to â€œinvestigate and respond appropriatelyâ€ to abuse reports and make â€œcommercially reasonable effortsâ€ to ensure that registrants donâ€™t use their domain names â€œdirectly or indirectlyâ€ to infringe third party rights. But there has been little action. â€œWell-documented reports of abuse that are submitted to registrars by right-holders, clearly demonstrating pervasive infringement, are summarily rejected, in contravention of the 2013 RAA, which requires that they be investigated,â€ he said. As an example, Metalitz highlighted a Romanian-hosted â€˜pirateâ€™ music site using the domain Itemvn.com. â€œBy August of last year, RIAA had notified the site of over 220,000 infringements of its membersâ€™ works (and had sent similar notices regarding 26,000 infringements to the siteâ€™s hosting providers). At that time, RIAA complained to the domain name registrar (a signatory of the 2013 RAA), which took no action, ostensibly because it does not host the site,â€ he explained. A complaint to ICANN was also dismissed, twice. Itâ€™s clear from Metalitzâ€™s testimony that the MPAA, RIAA and ESA are seeking an environment in which domains will be suspended or blocked if they can be shown to be engaged in infringement. But the groupsâ€™ demands donâ€™t end there. WHOIS WHOIS databases carry the details of individuals or companies that have registered domains and registrars are required to ensure that this information is both accurate and up to date. However, since WHOIS searches often reveal information that registrants would rather keep private, so-called proxy registrations (such as Whoisguard) have become increasingly popular. While acknowledging there is a legitimate need for such registrations (albeit in â€œlimited circumstancesâ€), the entertainment industry groups are not happy that pirate site operators are playing the system to ensure they cannot be traced. As a result they are aiming for a situation where registrars only deal with proxy services that meet certain standards on issues including accuracy of customer data, relaying of complaints to proxy registrants, plus â€œground rules for when the contact points of a proxy registrant will be revealed to a complainant in order to help address a copyright or trademark infringement.â€ In other words, anonymity should only be available up to a point. In a letter to the Committee, the EFF warned against the COAâ€™s proposals. â€œAs advocates for free speech, privacy, and liberty on the global Internet, we ask the Committee to resist calls to impose new copyright and trademark enforcement responsibilities on ICANN. In particular, the Committee should reject proposals to have ICANN require the suspension of Internet domain names based on accusations of copyright or trademark infringement by a website,â€ the EFF said. â€œThis is effectively the same proposal that formed the centerpiece of the Stop Online Piracy Act of 2011 (SOPA), which this Committee set aside after millions of Americans voiced their opposition. Using the global Domain Name System to enforce copyright law remains as problematic in 2015 as it was in 2011.â€ https://torrentfreak.com/mpaa-riaa-demand-dns-action-against-pirate-domains-150514/
The world's newest blockade of The Pirate Bay has been thwarted in a matter of minutes. After a court in Spain ordered the country's ISPs to block the notorious site on Friday, users who tweaked their connections to use Google's DNS instead of the one provided by their service provider were back on the site in seconds. One of the major strategies of the worldâ€™s leading entertainment companies is to have sites like The Pirate Bay blocked at the ISP level. The idea is that when subscribers canâ€™t access â€˜piratesâ€™ sites they will flock to legal alternatives. While there can be little doubt that some will take the opportunity to test out Netflix or Spotify (should they be available in their region), other users will be less ready to take the plunge. In Spain, where online piracy is reportedly more widespread than most other European countries, users faced a Pirate Bay problem on Friday when a judge ordered the countryâ€™s service providers to block the site within 72 hours. Some ISPs blocked the site immediately, provoking questions of where to get free content now that The Pirate Bay is off-limits. Of course, there are plenty of alternatives but for those a little more determined, access to TPB was just a click or two away. The problem is that for whatever reasons, thus far Spanish ISPs are only implementing a Pirate Bay ban on the most basic of levels. In the UK, for example, quite sophisticated systems block domain names and IP addresses, and can even automatically monitor sites so that any blocking counter-measures can be handled straight away. But in Spain users are finding that blocks are evaded with the smallest of tweaks. By changing a computer or routerâ€™s DNS settings, Spaniards are regaining access to The Pirate Bay in an instant. Both Googleâ€™s DNS and OpenDNS are reported as working on several Spanish discussion forums. â€œIâ€™ve [followed the instructions] and in two minutes you can enter Pirate Bay. And I am a computer illiterate and have no idea what a DNS is,â€ a user of a gaming forum writes. Another user, who moved away from his ISPâ€™s DNS a while ago, wasnâ€™t even aware that any block had been put in place. â€œIf the block is using DNS, I would not call that blocking, really. Iâ€™ve been using the DNS of Google for years and I have not even noticed anything,â€ he notes. While Spaniards will be pleased that the blockade is easily circumvented, itâ€™s the reaction to the news thatâ€™s perhaps the most interesting aspect. News that the site is being blocked is hardly being welcomed, but there is a definite absence of panic among those who are supposed to be some of Europeâ€™s most hardcore pirates. Whether thatâ€™s chiefly down to the weak blocking method being employed by some ISPs is up for debate, but having seen blocks do little to stop file-sharers across Europe â€“ particularly in the UK where the practice is widespread â€“ the Spanish probably see no real reason to break into a cold sweat just yet. https://torrentfreak.com/new-pirate-bay-blockade-foiled-by-simple-dns-trick-159030/
