About this product
- DescriptionCan broadband providers be asked to enforce copyright? The issue of copyright enforcement on the Internet - peer-to-peer downloading and so-called 'piracy' - is a political hot potato. In 2007-2009 it sparked a highly polarised policy battle in the EU and France over the 'three-strikes' (graduated response) measures which would make broadband providers cut alleged infringers off the Internet. This is the enigmatic case of the EU Telecoms Package. It was an attempt to enable copyright enforcement by amending telecoms law, but the crux of the political debate concerned the right to a fair trial. How should we understand the connection between copyright, telecoms and judicial process? The Copyright Enforcement Enigma sets the problem into a historic context of copyright enforcement, techlogy and liability, and exposes why the Telecoms Package was the policy vehicle chosen. Written in a lively and accessible style, the book takes the reader through the European Parliament processes to illustrate how they shaped the unexpected policy outcome.
