Cov neeg pluag rau cov ntaubntawv povthawj Kev lag luam Association of America (RIAA) yog nkees nug Google coj cia ib tug neeg tshwm sim ntawm liam copyright cuam tshuam thiab xav kom ib tug xaus rau banhammer Groundhog hnub.
Lub RIAA tau noj ib tug saib tsam uas ntawm Google tus senior copyright txoj cai ntuas Katherine Oyama tus nyob rau hauv nws zaj lus tim khawv ua ntej lub US lub tsev ntawm Cov Neeg Sawv Cev Intellectual Khoom Subcommittee ntawm lub Judiciary Committee lub lim tiam no.
Oyama tau tim khawv hais tias tej zaum takedowns yog tsis zoo tshaj plaws system, ntxiv hais tias nws tseem yog qhib rau ua phem rau. Nws hais tias Google ua hauj lwm nrog ntau yam li takedowns nyob rau hauv ib lub lim tiam nyob rau hauv 2014 raws li nws tau ua nyob rau hauv tag nrho cov ntawm 2010.
“Qhov zoo tshaj plaws txoj kev uas yuav sib ntaus sib tua piracy yog nrog zoo, ntau yooj yim, tsim nyog cawm kom piracy, as services ranging from Netflix to Spotify to iTunes have demonstrated,” nws hais tias. “The right combination of price, convenience, and inventory will do far more to reduce piracy than enforcement can.”
The RIAA made its own statements to the subcommittee, and has also provided anyone that wants it with a copy of Oyama’s testimony with its own annotations (PDF). The RIAA enjoys the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) system, but it does find it frustrating.
Where the Google counsel said one thing, the RIAA took the opposing line. Piv txwv li, where she recommended voluntary systems the RIAA responded by saying that Google “hasn’t yet actually entertained the idea of a voluntary agreement with content owners”.
The RIAA has also published the testimony of its chairman and CEO, Cary Sherman. Along with an appeal to approve monitoring systems, Sherman asked Google to help it end the daily game of ‘whack-a-mole’ that it plays.
“[Google should] ensure that when links to content are taken down, the same content on the same site is not continuously re-indexed when repopulated by the pirate site, rendering the takedown process useless,” nws hais tias.
The RIAA would also like to see ‘pirate’ websites deranked, and forced way down on search results, as well the introduction of a “trusted” badge for what it views as legitimate websites. Thaum kawg, it seems that it just wants an easier ride.
“Regardless of what Google takes down today, its search engine will spider the same pirate sites tomorrow and index anew all the illegal content on the pirate sites. All those links to infringing music files that were automatically repopulated by each pirate site after today’s takedown will be re-indexed and appear in search results tomorrow,” added Sherman.
“Every day we have to send new notices to take down the very same links to illegal content we took down the day before. It’s like ‘Groundhog Day’ for takedowns.
