Anti-Piracy Outfit Recruits Microsoft Director To Work On Mission Impossible

Anti-Piracy Outfit Recruits Microsoft Director To Work On Mission Impossible

Music Industry Piracy Investigations has recruited a prominent figure to become the next General Manager of their organization. MIPI will be hoping that when ex-Microsoft director of intellectual property Vanessa Hutley starts work in a few days time, she’ll be more optimistic of winning the piracy fight than she was in 2008. Back then Hutley declared that it would “never” be possible to stop people obtaining pirated media from file-sharing sites.

Music Industry Piracy Investigations (MIPI) was established in 1995 with a brief to fight physical piracy but it was the changing nature of their enemy 9 years later that thrust the anti-piracy group into center stage.

In 2004, MIPI raided the offices and home addresses of people involved with Sharman Networks and Brilliant Digital Entertainment. Two universities and 4 ISPs were also raided during the search for evidence to support their now infamous case against the companies behind file-sharing client KaZaA.

Just two years later in 2006, trained lawyer Sabiene Heindl joined MIPI, a stay that was to last five years. But following an announcement in June and having served 3 months notice, Heindl will leave MIPI anytime now.

After 11 years in the music business, Heindl will head over to NBN Co, the Australian government-owned corporation tasked to design, build and operate Australia’s National Broadband Network. At NBN she will take up the position of its stakeholder manager.

At the time of her resignation, former MIPI general manager Michael Speck said that Heindl’s role was one of the hardest in the music industry. Nevertheless, MIPI think they have found a worthy replacement to oversee their civil and criminal rights enforcement, anti-piracy lobbying and educational programs.

On September 12th, Heindl will be replaced by Vanessa Hutley, ex-senior corporate attorney and director of intellectual property at Microsoft .

“With her previous background and achievements, she is very well-positioned to lead MIPI into the next phase of its development,” says Sony Music Australia CEO Denis Handlin.

Handlin, an industry veteran, also holds the post of chairman at the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), the outfit that provides MIPI with its funding.

Considering MIPI’s vision of reducing online file-sharing to a trickle, the anti-piracy group will be hoping that Hutley joins them with a more positive outlook on dealing with the issue than she held three years ago while working at Microsoft.

In an interview, Hutley conceded that Microsoft would never be able to stop people obtaining pirated copies of its software from file-sharing networks. Instead, she said that Microsoft would concentrate on fighting physical piracy.

But this approach will be no good for MIPI. No-one wants music on CD anymore – not even pirates.

Somehow the pessimism of 2008 will have to change to optimism, but with file-sharing growing every year some will see her challenge quite simply as Mission: Impossible.

Nice one for the very well shown information. Sorry for the offtopic post nevertheless i need an individual to discuss this with. I'm really troubled over the instance I actually suffered at the workplace and am just sitting down here, writing in order to destroy time. Want a person to read my thoughts and present an honest view. I'm a teacher of British literature at the school of Los angeles and I suffered a difficulty with one of my pupils this morning. A youngster by the name Dave handed in a term paper for my own class according to the scarlett letter novel. As I was grading the papers, I just read over the essay and it ran beautifully. I thought that the essay was quite great and that that well deserved to be awarded a straight A grade. I was nearly finished with the grading when out of the blue it occured to me that I was doing some thing drastically wrong. The youngster was one of the most awful pupils in my course. How could he produce such a masterpiece. I smelled a thing and questioned him to come see me in my business office after classes. We'd a severe chitchat and I was able to make the kid disclose the supplier of the fantastic work. It been found he bought an essay over the internet on a website, so that it was done by some other person. I searched search engine and found the website right aways (the search term I used was How To Write An Essay) they usually arise right on the first page. Now my personal trouble is how to keep on my educational work if you can find websites like these in existence? Some of my individuals can go and buy a term paper. What shall I actually do to the kid who got trapped? I am sipping on a alcohol, pondering tough...
