TV, film and radio industry groups and trade unions have launched a new coalition to lobby the EU to take a harder line on online piracy. The catchily-named European Audiovisual Social Dialogue Committee wants more pressure to be put on ISPs to do their bit to detect and prevent illegal file-sharing, while also calling for more EU-funded research into the economic effects of online piracy. “The unauthorised filesharing of protected works and performances – as well as the need for all right holders to derive tangible benefits from the exploitation of their work – are important issues that need to be better recognised by the European commission and other EU institutions,” says the committee in a statement.
