Abstract

This article will argue that recent US litigation in BMG v Cox (2018), and Sony v UPC in Ireland (2016), may point to a new entertainment industry strategy pursuing private regulation for copyright enforcement online. Assuming this to be the case, it will weigh that strategy’s prospects for success relative to internet subscriber rights under the EU legal framework.

Keywords: Online Copyright, Piracy, Enforcement, Private Regulation, BMG v Cox, EU Law
