Cullen International’s new research examines new administrative and court procedures to fight online piracy in Europe. Online piracy remains high despite the emergence of successful online offers such as Netflix.
It shows if EU member have put in place (or are examining the possibility of introducing) administrative procedures on the blocking of websites, including by internet service providers (ISPs). This includes for example giving powers to adopt website blocking rulings to authorities other than courts (such as national regulators). It shows that four countries (Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain) already have administrative procedures in place. Belgium is also about to adopt a new law and France could be following suit.
The new benchmark also highlights if national courts have ordered innovative injunctions to make sure that websites with online piracy are effectively blocked (such as to stop mirror websites).
