Vodafone agree to system for tackling music piracy

Story :

Vodafone Ireland has become the latest internet service provider to agree a "cease and desist" protocol aimed at tackling music copyright piracy, the Commercial Court has heard.

The graduated response procedure involves cease and desist notices being sent to subscribers who illegally upload/download material before, on the third notice, the name and address of the alleged infringer are supplied by the service provider to the owners of the copyright. Ultimately, this allows copyright owners to seek court orders terminating their internet service if they refuse to desist.

Major providers, Virgin, eir and Sky, have already put the cease and desist protocol in place.

This followed proceedings brought by the Irish arms of Sony, Universal and Warner music companies under copyright legislation and recent court decisions.
