Sky: Everyone must tackle filesharing
In a report submitted to the Department for Business, Innovation and Science, the internet service provider (ISP) has claimed all parties "have a role to play" in reducing the "prevalence" of such web-based activity.
However, it warned that such bodies need to put their heads together to ensure any efforts to restrict access to filesharing systems are successful.
"It will only work if a level playing field applies across the whole industry and no ISP or rights owner is able to avoid its responsibilities," Sky stated.
"Additionally we would like to see the government taking responsibility for identifying sites which ISPs should block from their networks."
Sky offers broadband, home phone and digital TV services to over nine million customers across the UK.
