Abstract (Document Summary)

Copyright infringement remains an international problem, as recent legislation in South Korea, New Zealand, Ireland, and the UK shows. These countries have implemented a "three strikes and you're out" policy to anyone found to be infringing copyright. This type of policy is also known as a graduated response program. The US, on the other hand, introduced a six-strikes program effective in late February 2013. Each program cuts the Internet access of anyone found to be infringing copyright three (or six) times, generally with a delay of anywhere from 6 months to a year between each warning. Although the administration and adjudication of each program differs, all are more alike than is immediately apparent. Each policy relies on a rightsholder initiating a claim that is submitted to an ISP to police. None of the programs openly defines the parameters of what a specific infringement entails, with the exceptions of obtaining the content from an infringing site or using a file-sharing application to distribute the content.
