"Kompromisszusatz 6 des Trautmann-Vorschlags bezieht sich auf Artikel 33 der Harbour-Vorschläge, in denen er die 'Kooperation' zwischen den Providern und den Medienkonzernen vorschlägt", so Monica Horten zu Diese Kooperation könnte so aussehen wie das in Frankreich auf den Weg gebrachte "Loi HADOPI" alias "Three Strikes Out", bei dem die Provider dazu verpflichtet sind, ihren Kunden den Zugang zum Netz zu kappen, wenn die Medienindustrie und eine zentrale Internet-Kontrollbehörde das wollen - ohne Einschaltung eines Gerichts.

Iptegrity in brief 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.
