Athlonite: If they do away with the current fee then perhaps ISP's could "do away" with delivering infringement notices or start charging an hourly rate


Unfortunately those would not be options as it is the law its self that dictates the charges (By way of cap) and requires these systems to be in place and functional.

The fee its self is low for what it entails and likely comes out at substantially below the cost to maintain these systems.

CYaBro: ISPs are probably already making a loss on the $25 they get paid to go and retrieve all the information required and send out the notice.

Why should they lose more money?

Egzachary.

Would be nice to see the ISP's lobbying for the fees to increase so they can more fairly recover money they can actually prove they're losing!

That would be hilarious (and brilliant).  I can see the argument now:

 

“We based our $25 cost on a high volume of requests coming through.  Since we have only seen a very small number then we have fewer notices to spread the fixed component over.  Therefore the cost per notice is now $50.”
