[liberationtech] New article from the Cybernorms RG published

Dear all,

Today we got informed about the publication of our article: "Law, norms,
piracy and online anonymity: Practices of de-identification in the
global file sharing community", authored by Stefan Larsson, Måns
Svensson, Marcin de Kaminski, Kari Rönkkö and Johanna Alkan Olsson. The
article was published in Journal of Research in Interactive Marketing.

Short extract from the conclusion of the article:
"Legal enforcement of a copyright regulation that does not correspond
with social norms leads to countermeasures, in this case an increased
use of anonymity services, sprung from the social norms that are not in
compliance with the law. Given the generativity of the technologies of
online communication in networks, these countermeasures imply an
increased diffusion and maybe, in the future, a diversification of
techniques of online anonymisation. The foundations of law enforcement
have changed with new technologies and the internet; at the same time,
the internet has also changed the foundations of social life. We have
only begun to see the implications of traceability in an online
environment in terms of both law enforcement and privacy protection. Law
enforcement and privacy protection are likely issues that will grow in
importance and potentially create political conflict in the years to
come, in line with the absolutely inevitable embeddedness of digital
networks in almost all aspects of life: social, cultural, work-life,
education, citizenship, government, business, etc."
