Policing the Network: Using DPI for Copyright Enforcement

by Milton Mueller, Andreas Kuehn, Stephanie Santoso

Published online  at:  'The Network is aware - social science research on deep packet inspection' a project of  the University of Syracuse, New York. 

"Horten (2011) describes how France’s Olivenne Commission paved the way for a new law mandating graduated response. Late in 2007 the Commission engineered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) among ISPs and rights holders to experiment with technologies to identify and filter out illegal file sharing. For repeated infringers, a “Three-Strikes-Policy” was recommended. A regulatory entity would be created to oversee adherence to the agreement; non-collaboration by ISPs could lead to sanctions. The Olivenne MoU laid the basis for France’s HADOPI law and had a significant impact on the initial EU Telecoms Reform proposals."

 

"In the EU Telecoms Package, copyright lobbyists attempted to make a graduated response approach based on the French model compulsory on a Europe-wide basis. On November 13, 2007, Commissioner Viviane Reding introduced to the European Parliament the first draft of the EU Telecoms Package, a comprehensive policy reform that amended several existing directives in order to unify the EU Member States’ telecommunications market. The rights holders seized upon the telecom reform because it was the only way to get uniform contractual provisions authorizing ISPs to disconnect subscribers for copyright infringement; this could not be done through modifying copyright law. (Horten, 2011,)"

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’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. I am currently (from June 2022)  Policy Manager - Freedom of Expression, with the Open Rights Group.
