A copyright masquerade, how corporate lobbying threatens online freedoms, Monica Horten - hbk

Summary
This highly original analysis of three attempts to bring in new laws to defend copyright on the Internet - ACTA, Ley Sinde, and the Digital Economy Act - investigates the dance of influence between lobbyists and their political proxies and unmasks the sophistry of their arguments. Copyright expert Monica Horten outlines the myriad ways that lobbyists contrived to bypass democratic process and persuade politicians to take up their cause in imposing an American corporate agenda. In doing so, she argues the case for stronger transparency in copyright policy-making"
