#P2P #Filesharing #Research - Storage Wars: Clouds, Cyberlockers, and Media Piracy in the Digital Economy - Nick Marx (e-Media Studies) [Volume 3, issue 1] -
"This article examines the role of online media piracy in the shift away from acquisition- and ownership-based models of consumption in favor of access-based models. In this media industry climate, cloud technologies have played an increasingly important role in providing audiences with content on their own terms. Piracy has long served a similar function, but it is taking on aspects of cloud services as well. I investigate how cloud technologies are changing media piracy activities by examining cyberlockers, web-based services that afford consumers ubiquitous access and ownership of media content. Cyberlocker use for the illegal trade of copyrighted content, I argue, complicates conventional technological, legal, and cultural discourses about media piracy." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#P2P #Filesharing #Research: "Digital Piracy Debunked: A Short Note" by Giancarlo Francesco Frosio -
"In the last two decades, the industry has endlessly deployed the rhetoric of the “digital threat” in order to demand harsher measures against digital piracy, peer-to-peer file sharing and the like. In fact, the uneasiness in sharing the view that harsher measures are an adequate response to copyright infringement in the digital environment comes from the uncertain grounds on which the heavy-handed reaction against digital piracy has been based. Two related arguments might run against this heavy-handed approach. First, market conditions might incentivize piracy. Additionally, there are raising doubts over the argument that piracy is a threat to creativity, especially in the digital environment. All in all, it may be hard to find a factual justification for policy decisions based on the “digital threat” discourse. In fact, digital technology seems not to have negatively affected the creation of new works, whose encouragement is the main justification to the legal monopoly created by... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#P2P #Filesharing #Research: Technologies of Piracy? Exploring the Interplay between Commercialism and Idealism in the Development of MP3 and DivX | Spilker | International Journal of Communication -
"This article compares the development of the two central “piracy standards”—MP3 (sound) and DivX (audiovisual content)—analyzing the actors, strategies, and motivations involved in their inception and diffusion. Until recently, the main focus in the research literature investigating the relationships between commercialism and idealism in the development of the Internet has been on the clashes and confrontations between two supposedly incompatible worldviews. In accordance with newer approaches such as Castells and Cardoso’s (2012) and Lobato and Thomas’ (2012), we challenge this dichotomous and irreconcilable picture by investigating the borderlands and crossings between the two sides. As we argue, the cases of MP3 and DivX are strategic for beginning the exploration of these overlooked dynamics. The actor-network theory concepts of “displacement,” “translation,” and “immutable mobiles” are employed to trace the various phases in the propagation of the two standards. By following MP3... more... - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet

#P2P #Research: File Sharing, Network Architecture, and Copyright Enforcement: An Overview - Tilman Klumpp (University of Alberta, May 2013)
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of internet file sharing networks and explores the relationship between technological, economic, and legal aspects of file sharing. I chronicle the evolution of content sharing technology since the 1990s and examine the role of network architecture in a copyright holder’s choice of enforcement strategy. I also describe how users and developers of file sharing networks have responded to various enforcement tactics. The target audience of this survey consists of economists and legal scholars interested in the technology and economics of file sharing networks and the enforcement of intellectual property rights on these networks." - Miguel Caetano
