BAMP was founded in 1996 as the only organization, representing and protecting the neighboring rights of music producers on the territory of Bulgaria. The main priority of the association is to co-operate to the competent authorities in the process of organizing and coordinating the fight against both physical and Internet music piracy.

BAMP is well known for its activities to the state administration and legal authorities, entitled to enforce the IPRs related legislation, as well as to the right-holders’ and collective management organizations, and the public.

The Pirate Bay blocked in France

Société civile des producteurs phonographiques (SCPP) has been successful in its application to have The Pirate Bay blocked.  The Paris Court has ordered 4 French ISPs (representing 90% of the market) to implement all appropriate measures block access to The Pirate Bay and several proxy and mirror sites.

The ISPs have 15 days to implement the order and the block will be in place for a period of 12 months. The method of blocking has been left to the ISP’s discretion and further they can inform SCPP if they face any difficulties when implementing the blocks. The court rejected the argument raised by one of the ISPs that blocks can be circumvented, noting that blocking is the only real effective way for rightsholders to address online piracy.

 Regarding costs, as we saw in the Allostreaming decision, ISPs may ask SCPP to reimburse the cost of implementation.

 The Pirate Bay has now been blocked in a total of 8 countries, with pending actions in Austria and Sweden.
