From idea to IPRED : The Swedish Film Institute’s arguments regarding file sharing, copyright and the Internet (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to examine how the Swedish Film Institute’s arguments regarding file sharing, copyright and the Internet relates to the changes made in the Swedish copyright law during 2003 and 2007, using the current debate about surveillance versus liberty on the Internet as a backdrop. The theory used is based on Lawrence Lessig’s ideas about how a network such as the Internet can be controlled, and what regulating forces a government can use to constrain a certain behavior such as illegal file sharing. By examining referral statements made by the Swedish Film Institute to five different communications from the Swedish government regarding copyright and film politics an idea analysis is being used as a method to answer the following sub-questions: 1.) How has the Swedish copyright law evolved during the latest years? 2.) What arguments are being used by the Swedish Film Institute in issues regarding file sharing, copyright and the Internet? 3.) Are the arguments being used by the Swedish Film Institute regarding these issues changing during the examined period? The findings of the study show that the Swedish Film Institute has been eager to support a more powerful expansion of the copyright laws, often suggesting more powerful solutions than the Swedish government itself. The Swedish Film Institute thereby supports a stronger regulation of the technical architecture surrounding the Internet which means that copyright holders and their spokesmen easier can demand of suppliers of Internet connections to reveal the identity of their customers if copyright infringements have been made.
