'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.'

Iptegrity in brief

 

Iptegrity.com is the website of Dr Monica Horten. I’ve been analysing analysing digital policy since 2008. Way back then, I identified how issues around rights can influence Internet policy, and that has been a thread throughout all of my research. I hold a PhD in EU Communications Policy from the University of Westminster (2010), and a Post-graduate diploma in marketing. I am on the Advisory Council of the Open Rights Group.  I’ve served as an independent expert on the Council of Europe  Committee on Internet Freedoms, and was involved in a capacity building project in Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine.
