Writers Guild of America, West urges FCC to create guidelines to fight online piracy

HollywoodNews.com: Calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to preserve an open Internet and address copyright infringement , the Writers Guild of America, West is asking that the agency institute net neutrality by reclassifying broadband transmission under Title II while also creating clear rules that require Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to police piracy – but with techniques that do not interfere with lawful content, do not create barriers to entry, and do not disadvantage independent producers as they compete for viewers with huge media companies.

In reply comments filed today regarding the Framework for Broadband Internet Services, the WGAW voices strong concern with the implications to free speech and the right to privacy if the methods suggested by others in the entertainment industry are employed under the guise of network management.

“We are opposed to all forms of piracy,” said WGAW President John Wells, “But we must find solutions that do not trample on 1st and 4th Amendment rights. We are confident that a free and open Internet, governed by net neutrality principles, can and must coexist with strong copyright enforcement.”
