U2 Manager Faults ISPs for Piracy

By Sergio Published on .

U2’s manager Paul McGuiness places the blame on Internet service providers for the losses the recording industry has been facing due to Internet piracy, the Los Angeles Times reports. “[ISPs] are the gatekeepers with the technical means to make a far greater impact on mass copyright violation than tens of thousands of lawsuits taken out against individual file sharers,” McGuiness said at the Midem international music conference in Cannes. He asked ISPs to take “a moral obligation to be true, trustworthy partners of the music sector.”
