Music Industry covers various individual label, but most of them believes that they are incapable of fighting ‘with piracy any further. The Future of Music Coalition (FMC) and the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) has issued a new study that shows the miserable condition of music industry against piracy.
A2IM and FMC has requested the independent labels, to answer on the unauthorized music use and to share their involvement with Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
The responses were, 87% people infringed their work online where as 30% individual labeled didn’t inquired about their infringed work. As 65% believed it took more than 24 hours to remove the infringed works or even that work may not have been removed. The sum of 68% reverted a “ whack-a-mole problem” ( that implies that soon the infringed works get removed it reappeared either on the same service provider or any other service provider).
Altogether it is simply understood that the independent record labels don’t have enough resources to fight the online piracy for their own work, 65% stated this mere reason. Even the 30% believed that as the previous enforcement hasn’t worked yet their initiative will also go in vain.
To understand it more briefly A2IM and FMC’s have stated majorly three reasons why these rights doesn’t work effectively. (i) as the resources were not enough to track their own infringed work (ii) they even some time couldn’t discover details of liable person so they can request complaint against them. (iii) and most of the time, the notice given by the DMCA aren’t taken seriously by the infringed websites.
With these survey, it becomes clear that companies and the independent labels are already aware that people actively participate in getting the content from the pirated sites. Even the 87% of responder knew of unauthorized uses in any typical three-month period. Illegal piracy is learnt once or few times by 29% of companies and 26% learn how people are infringing their work on daily basis.
As the analysis of the study goes in the manner that it is confirmed that the independent labels have gone through in person encounters while using the notice to get hold of the illegal person. They even go through some very tedious unreasonable encounters. Although with these measurable regulations taken by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act hasn’t curbed the entire problem and thus the goal is achieved fully, some stricter laws are required which will help the independent labels to fight for their right and will get an assured correct judgment.
