Old dogs and new tricks: why the content industries are the real pirates

28.05.2008

"According to Monica Horten, PhD researcher in EU communications policy at the University of Westminster, the EU is effectively in stealth-mode but is banging the legal building blocks into place so it can introduce its own EU-level three strikes rule. "

"The general theory is that these moves are all coming from the same school of thought, and likely to have been lobbied for by the same groups," says Horten. "In the EU those include the MPA (Motion picture association), IFPI (recording industry trade group), and the French cultural industry - groups such as Vivendi, and the SACD which is an author's group representing film producers."
