Disney: ISPs should ban pirates - 11-September-2008, 00:40

Bob Iger, the chief executive of the Walt Disney Company, has called on Internet service providers to ban people who illegally download content.

In July, six of the UK's biggest ISPs signed a memorandum of understanding with the government, music industry body the BPI and the Motion Picture Association to reduce illegal filesharing within three years.

Iger said as part of the deal between distribution businesses and firms like Disney, clauses should be made that people who illegally download content are banned. "We are simply asking for people who are downloading illegal files to get a warning initially then to get their service cut off," he said. "That should be part of the agreement with these companies. We are not asking for information on who the customer is or to show up with law enforcement authorities."

"Most distribution businesses succeed because they have a distribution process in place. They also have product. We contribute to that mightily. It is a joint partnership. As part of that pact to give our product and make it available on their platform, we believe they should work with us to prevent people from stealing. It is in their best interests we well," he added.
