ISOC Report on Copyright Enforcement

I’m pleased to report that the Internet Society has published a discussion paper looking at different methods being proposed around the world to respond to the use of the Internet to breach Intellectual Property Rights. For each of the approaches – graduated response and suspension of access,  traffic shaping, blocking, content identification and filtering, and DNS manipulation – the paper looks at the implications for the Internet, Internet technologies, access and use.

It was interesting working with ISOC and other members of the Internet community to develop the paper – I hope it’ll be an equally interesting read.
