MPAA seeks ISPs help in online piracy fight

If the movie industry gets its way, then your Internet service provider may one day start playing a greater role in keeping pirated content off its networks.

Motion Picture Association of America Chairman and CEO Dan Glickman said Tuesday that his industry has been attempting to “deepen our relationship” with telephone, cable and Internet companies “because we’re all in this together.”

“Their revenue bases depend on legitimate operations of their networks and more and more they’re finding their networks crowded with infringed material, bandwidth space being crowded out,” Glickman told an audience composed mainly of attorneys at a daylong seminar called “Legal Risk Management in the Web 2.0 World.” “Many of them are actually getting into the content business directly or indirectly. This is not an us-versus-them issue.”
