Reason #687 why increased enforcement won’t fix the copyright system

April 8, 2008

Jon posted a story at p2p.net that details how hundreds of Australian police caught downloading copyrighted DVDs at work will escape prosecution. He links to the original story, published by The Australian, with the following title:

“DVD piracy too rife among police to prosecute”

The MPAA must love this.

Makes me wonder, yet again, why the USTR, E.C., World Customs Organization and others think more copyright enforcement will solve these kinds of problems…
