Abstract

Recently, the UK Government proposed a new approach  view[PH1]  foron Copyright regulation.  The Hargreaves Review and Richard Hooper’s subsequent programme of study represents a truly true “shift” in the European legal framework. At the contrary[PH2] In contrast, in Spain a new Law of Intellectual Property is being preparinred by g [PH3] by the Minister of Culture to be discussed [PH4] in at the Parliament[PH5]  in[PH6]  tthe next months.   At the same time, as soon as the new President of France, Mr. Hollande, arrived in to[PH7]  the Eliseo Elysée Palace, he promised a review of the Hadopi[PH8]  Loi. This is the morestrictest law in Europe because it provides for implies[PH9]  –after “three advices[PH10] warnings”- the cutting off  [PH11] of any Internet access to anythe user who downloads “illegal content”.   InAt[PH12]  this regard, we realise a switch in regulation, not only because of the protest[PH13] s against ACTA, SOPA or PIPA Laws all over the world, but also because Europeans [PH14] Governments and industry associations are contemplating a tremendous threadthreat: [PH15] reguover regulation of clation over content [PH16] is stifling markets and opportunities to sell or rent music, videos o TV programmes, and could end up by asphyxiating them’.  which can asphyxiate and kill them[PH17] .     We will compare[PH18]  analyze the afore mentioned [PH19] UK proposal "Modernizing Copyright”, which is currently before the British Parliamentright now at the British Parliamen[PH20] t, and its likely influence on the international agenda to reform content regulation which we’re studying in a wide Research project[1]. After the “Consultation on Copyright: Comments on Economic Impacts”,[2] In the Consultation on Copyright: Comments on Economic Impacts[3] scholars suggest, as we have also done, that another approach to copyright law is desirable.scholars can assure also, as we did before, another Copyright Law is possible. [PH21] Consultation The consultation h[PH22] ighlighted the strongly opposing views of rights holders and others on[PH23]  about the likely benefits of the Government’s proposals. [PH24]    This paper is part of a research project in which we aim to perform a more extensive comparative analysis of the various legal and political texts currently under discussion at the international level (SOPA or PIPA in the US, ACTA in the European Parliament), as well as at the national level, such as the two Anti-piracy laws in Belgium, the Sinde Law in Spain, the Hadopi Laws in France or the Digital Economy Act in the UK.   There is a very prolific[PH25]  interesting approach to this issue which can be drawn this way:     What strategy  is better? Follow the money Follow the user Follow the site New UK strategy Hadopi Law (France) Sinde Law (Spain) Criminal Law   ACTA-SOPA-           Thanks so much!!!!     Loreto [1] I did a previous presentation also at ECREA Pre-conference “Imposing freedoms”. The project "Las libertades informativas en el contexto de la web 2.0 y las redes sociales: redefinición, garantías y límites" ("Freedom of information in the context of Web 2.0 and social networks: redefinition, guarantees and limits") is financed by the program "Proyecto I+D" of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain (reference DER2009-14519-C05-01).
