Lucchi, Nicola, Internet Content Governance & Human Rights (May 1, 2013). Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law Vol. 16, No. 3 (2013). Available at SSRN

  • “The paper examines how Internet content governance is posing regulatory issues directly related to the growing importance of an equitable access to digital information. In particular, it looks at conflicts arising within the systems of rights and obligations attached to communication (and especially content provision) over the Internet. It seeks to identify emerging tensions and to draw out the implications for the nature and definitions of rights (e.g. of communication and access, but also of IP ownership) and for regulations and actions taken to protect, promote or qualify those rights. These points are illustrated by a series of recent examples.”
