Abstract

P2P file-sharing dominated the illegal online uses of copyrighted materials since its appearance in 1999. In 2012, I have concluded my research on this field in a monograph. Six years passed by and it is time to double-check what foreseeable consequences came through and how some other unexpected developments have changed the landscape of copyright law.

Keywords: platform economy, copyright law, online media consumption, file-sharing, law enforcement, piracy
