'As Australia’s ISP filtering proposal continues to evolve, the possibility of scope creep into other domains of the ISP-based content filter, once established, remains a live concern. Copyright filtering is an obvious candidate.

Around the world (EU Telecoms Package 2007, Horten 2009, Anderson 2007), the entertainment industry has been agitating for governments and ISPs to implement filtering technology to prevent online copyright abuse (Yu 2008).'


'DPI is the wonder child of copyright filter supporters because it presents the technological opportunity for ISPs to stifle P2P traffic. Both in Europe (EU 2007, Horten 2009) and the US, (Anderson 2007) the entertainment industry is campaigning for a DPI copyright filter.'







The Copyright Enforcement Enigma tells the story of the 2009 Telecoms Package and how the copyright industries tried to hijack it.

'accurate and absorbing account of the story of the Telecoms Package' -Journal of International Commercial Law and Technology

'...a must read for those interested in knowing in depth about copyright enforcement and Internet.' -Journal of Intellectual Property Rights.
