BILETA 2007 – Cyber Piracy Paper

The papers presented at the BILETA 2007 conference have not yet been uploaded to the BILETA website, so I’ve made a PDF version of the full paper I presented available here for download. The paper presents the results of the exploratory study which took place in December 2006, and argues that there is a danger of the law of cyber piracy being misrepresented to the public and policy makers¬†through means such as the¬†“Piracy Is A Crime” campaign, and press articles such as that recently seen in Empire magazine.
