Buzzword Internet Piracy
Internet piracy is an issue for both content and service providers. Content providers suffer from lost revenue. Service providers are overwhelmed by the huge data volumes generated by P2P file sharing and one-click file hosting. The ubiquitous and free-of-charge availability of high-quality content is a major stumbling block for the launch of commercial content-distribution schemes.
The workshop will start with an overview of the contents being exchanged in today's Internet based on brand-new results from ipoque’s Internet Study 2008. This will illustrate the extent of the problem. There is an ongoing and controversial discussion about how to deal with Internet piracy. The panelists will provide different perspectives and also talk about possible solutions using commercial, technical, legal, and regulatory control mechanisms.
Klaus Mochalski expects a controversial discussion: ”Our panelists have very different perspectives on Internet piracy. This diversity of opinions is important for a lively discussion. We would like to provide a unique overview of this controversial topic.“

Interviews and Background Information
Klaus Mochalski, Hendrik Schulze and the other participants are available for interviews after the discussion. In connection with the workshop, ipoque will publish a white paper, which provides a survey of the technical possibilities of dealing with Internet piracy. It will include opinions of various industry and government experts and discuss possible solutions and their feasibility.
