Hadopi : son efficacité déjà remise en causeFrance – D’après une étude de l’université de Rennes, le nombre de pirates aurait augmenté de 3% depuis trois mois. En cause : le développement, depuis l’adoption de la loi contre le téléchargement illégal, de pratiques échappant au cadre de la Haute autorité pour la diffusion des œuvres et la protection des droits sur Internet (Hadopi). Selon l’étude publiée par Les Échos, “à peine 15% des internautes qui utilisaient les réseaux peer to peer avant l’adoption de la loi Hadopi ont définitivement cessé de le faire”.L’effet dissuasif de la loi contre le téléchargement illégal peut donc être remis en cause mais surtout, les internautes s’orientent vers d’autres pratiques. Au cours des trois mois qui ont suivi l’adoption de la loi Hadopi, les pratiques de téléchargement autres que le peer-to-peer, tel que le téléchargement direct via des sites d’hébergement comme Megaupload ou Rapidshare, ou le simple streaming, se sont en effet considérablement développées. D’après l’étude de l’université de Rennes, 20% des internautes visionnent films et séries sur des sites de streaming tandis que 14% préfèrent utiliser les réseaux de partage. Ce sont ainsi quelque 3 millions d’internautes qui échapperaient à l’Hadopi, ces pratiques ne pouvant pas être détectées en l’état.Enfin, l’étude souligne un autre impact négatif de la loi Hadopi. Alors que la moitié des pirates se trouvent être également des acheteurs de musique et vidéos numériques, couper leur connexion Internet comme le prévoit la riposte graduée pourrait “potentiellement réduire la taille du marché des contenus culturels numériques de 27%”.Le 9 mars 2010 à 16:26 • Emmanuel Perrin
Deputy Thomas Pringle has today expressed his anger at the Government’s negative campaigning on the upcoming referendum, describing their approach as “Machiavellian”.Speaking at Leaders’ Questions to the Tánaiste on the matter, the Independent TD for Donegal South-West outlined his concerns.“Doubt about future funding is the stick that this Government is using to beat the Irish people into submission on May 31st.” Deputy Pringle put forward that “If the EFSF funding will not be available, why then did European heads of state in a statement on March 30th state that any member state in a programme will be funded up to the point that they can return to the markets?“Applications for this funding can be made until the end of June 2013 – this is where Ireland is currently getting its funding from and therefore will not be considered a new applicant when the ESM is due to take effect, so we will not be subject to its conditionality for future funding.”He said Michael Noonan has said himself that there is a commitment that European authorities will continue to supply countries that are in programmes with money even when the programme is concluded, providing they fulfil the conditions of that programme.“This situation has not changed; the Government would just like us to think that it has in order for this Treaty to be passed. “The fact is that regardless of the Treaty vote, Ireland is guaranteed funding under the current programme – as long as it meets its targets. A Yes or No vote will not change this” said Pringle.He added “The Government is scaremongering the people of Ireland into voting Yes by making threats which are simply untrue. It certainly says a lot when these bully-boy tactics are what is being resorted to in an attempt to get this referendum passed.“Regardless of the outcome of this referendum, the people deserve to know the truth about our funding situation, something which the Government has so far denied us.“Ireland will not fall into a black hole of funding uncertainty if people decide to vote No. In fact, the uncertainty lies if we become subject to the dire fiscal regulations of the Treaty” stated Pringle.PRINGLE SLAMS GOVERNMENT’S ‘NEGATIVE’ CAMPAIGNING ON REFERENDUM was last modified: May 3rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Deputy Thomas PringleFISCAL TREATY

Regular giving to charities by this method has grown for the third year in a row.Rapidata, the Bacs approved direct debit processing agency, reports that the volume of Direct Debit donations has increased by 7.8% in the past year to 3.5 million, the total value given by this method is up by 9.8%, and the average gift by Direct Debit has increased by almost £1 to £12.86. The figures cover donations to 117 charities.Direct Debit donation cancellations have also dropped to 3.32%, the lowest figure since 2007. The cancellation cycle throughout the year 2010/11 (up to and including March 2011) also closely followed the pre-recession pattern of cancellations, so it would seem that the high level of cancellations in 2008/09 has run its course.Online regular giving has increased considerably, up by 36%. The average online regular gift is £8.09, and 83% of online donors make a Gift Aid declaration, making the total average gift worth £11.39.Children’s charities have enjoyed the highest increase in average regular donations, from £13.11 to £15.01. Healthcare and medical research charities received the second biggest increase.The report points out that charities could be raising more from Direct Debit gifts, since many are losing income unnecessarily by failing to record efficiently and manage unpaid Direct Debits. Too many charities treat unpaid Direct Debits as cancellations. Rapidata points out however that the majority of unpaid Direct Debits are due to ‘insufficient funds’ and 62.5% of Direct Debits returned as Refer to Payer were paid when re-presented the following month.Scott Gray, Managing Director of Rapidata Services Plc, said: “The new statistics are truly encouraging but should not be taken lightly; it’s no time to rest on our laurels… The most exciting news is that for the first time we have undeniable proof that re-presenting certain failed Direct Debits prevents unnecessary loss of income, and charities need to be made aware of this.“It only takes some minor tweaks to the administration process to gain a significant amount of income, reduce attrition figures and the costs of reactivation programmes. For a large charity this could mean thousands of pounds a month.”Adrian Sargeant, Professor of Fundraising at Bristol Business School and at the Center on Philanthropy, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, welcomed the benchmarking report, adding: ““We also need to get smarter at recruiting the right donors into our organisations in the first place, taking investment decisions in respect of acquisition that are guided by the return on lifetime value that would accrue and avoiding short-term and potentially misleading measures such as immediate ROI.”Rapidata’s Charity Direct Debit Tracking Report 2011 will be published today at midday and will be available as a free download fromwww.rapidataservices.com Regular giving grows for third consecutive year, says Rapidata Tagged with: direct debit Individual giving Research / statistics Howard Lake | 9 May 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
