Rights AllianceWith recommendations that are similar to – but more wide-ranging than – recommendations made to the European Commission in mid-May by an EU Parliament member, Denmark’s Rights Alliance responded to a Danish government request for recommendations on site blocking.

Unlike the recommendations made to the EC, which set a goal of shutting down a specific genre of streaming piracy in a specified period of time (30 minutes), the Rights Alliance makes the more “abstract” and non-genre-specific recommendation to streamline the take-down process so live streams are terminated while the event is in progress.

Rights Alliance also suggests monitoring by government-appointed informants, and recommends that these guidelines be added to Denmark’s “Growth Plan for Creative Industries.”

Why it matters

Currently, request-processing time interferes with timely implementation and limits mitigation to happen after-the-fact.

Also, while the Growth Plan for Creative Industries recognizes ‘scam sites,’ it reportedly lacks a time interval component.
