Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme (Vcap)
« on: May 09, 2014, 10:44:42 AM »
BBC is carrying an article about the soon to be activated Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme (Vcap). What's particularly interesting is the way Rights Holders want to use the system for, what amounts to, harassing users with indirect threats of legal action about unconfirmed and unsubstantiated violations of Copyright - it's not for service providers to act on Rights holder behalf, but for the Rights Holders to police and pursue protection of their own properties. Thankfully ISP's appear to have seen the potential can of worms this might open and are preferring a more 'educational' approach to warning users about infringements.
