Sony: can we treat pirates like terrorists, please?

Dear Sony (and others),

don’t you think you’ve had enough SNAFUs this year already? Do you really think the EU should grant you the right to access data gathered under the protection of terrorism act to hunt for music pirates.

“The music and film industries are demanding that the European parliament extends the scope of proposed anti-terror laws to help them prosecute illegal downloaders. In an open letter to MEPs, companies including Sony BMG, Disney and EMI have asked to be given access to communications data – records of phone calls, emails and internet surfing – in order to take legal action against pirates and filesharers. Current proposals restrict use of such information to cases of terrorism and organised crime.”

I don’t know what to say. I guess this year may really kick off the end of commercial media as we know it. There’s just no point in buying the crap any longer, you’re only encouraging them.

    Diese Forderung ist natürlich auch gerade vor dem Hintergrund der derzeitigen Debatte um die Freigabe von Mautdaten zum Zwecke der Verbrechensbekämpfung sehr interessant. Wann fordert Sony Zugriff auf unsere Bewegungsprofile? [via Gadgetguy ]
