Abstract

There has been a long history of copyright litigation in respect of musical works and sound recordings. Over the last decade there has been a new battlefield. In the wake of legal action against peer-to-peer networks such as Napster, Kazaa and Grokster, and torrent services such as The Pirate Bay, copyright owners targeted internet video sites, which provided access to copyright works such as music, television and film. There has been significant conflict in respect of internet videos between creators, the music industry, online intermediaries and consumers. The internet video sharing site YouTube has been a focal point of copyright litigation and public policy debate.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
