English term or phrase:graduated proportionate responses
Respect, integrity and using graduated proportionate responses are key principles at the core of our working culture.
Our own Rules for the Use of Force (RUF) have been developed as a proportionate and graduated response which is commensurate with the threat. This fundamental document is underpinned by the inherent right to self-defence and the preservation of life.
Graduated response is a protocol or law, adopted in several countries, aimed at reducing unlawful file sharing.
The main characteristics of these initiatives are:
• "Rights holders monitor P2P networks for illegal downloading activities"
• "Rights holders provide ISPs with convincing proof of infringements being committed by an individual at a given IP address"
• "Educational notices are sent through an ISP to the account holder informing him or her of the infringements and of the consequences of continued infringement and informing the user that content can be lawfully acquired online"
• "If the account holder repeatedly ignores the notices, a tribunal may take deterrent action, with the most severe sanctions reserved for a court"
