Abstract/Index

There have been several trials against online piracy: filing of lawsuits against individual file sharers, unconvincing pieces of legislation that stretched the boundaries of both copyright law and fundamental rights, technological measures that put at risk the net neutrality principle of the web and all its features and the introduction of legal platforms from which users can legally download copyrighted material. They all have one thing in common: they all failed. This paper, grounded on the idea that the success or failure of a legal system in protecting copyrights depends mostly from on the appropriate balance between, on one hand, commercial hopes to maximise profits, and on the other, the willingness-to-pay of potential customers, will introduce the reader to facts, figures and several alternatives to the current anti-piracy regime.
