P2P and the Future of Private Copying
posted by scubacuda on Monday October 11, @01:51AM
from the dept.
Copyright Peter Yu writes "My upcoming article on "P2P and the Future of Private Copying" is now available at http://ssrn.com/abstract=578568. This Article examines the RIAA's enforcement tactics, legal developments in copyright law in 2003, and possible challenges the entertainment industry will face in the next few years. It also evaluates critically proposals commentators have put forward to solve the unauthorized copying problem: (1) mass licensing, (2) compulsory licensing, (3) voluntary collective licensing, (4) voluntary contribution, (5) technological protection, (6) copyright law revision, (7) dispute resolution proceeding, and (8) alternative compensation. The article concludes by noting the need for a range of solutions that meet consumer needs while taking into account the Internet's structural resistance and networked feature and the changing social norms in the digital copyright world, as well as the need for new ways to rethink the P2P file sharing debate. Comments and suggestions are welcome as usual. And thanks for the very helpful feedback for my book chapter."
