Big tech accountability? Read how we got here in  The Closing of the Net 

EU anti-piracy overhaul under attack; ISPs warn against site blocking, censorship, by Zack Whittaker, in ZDNet,15 April, 2013

Meanwhile, Internet policy expert Monica Horten described the consultation as "seriously
problematic." Writing on her blog (http://www.iptegrity.com/index.php/ipred/844-european-commission-copyrightconsultation-
is-no-april-fool), she warned that its substance "gives a sensation of déjà vu to anyone who followed
the ACTA debate," and noted that a three-strike system and ISP policing of the Internet were all included,
though "some of the code-words have changed."

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.
