World Copyright Summit 9-10 June 2009, Ronald Reagan Center, Washington DC, USA Debate ISPs/telcos: Part of the Problem or the Solution? Voices in many countries are asking for ISPs and telcos to be more pro-active, alongside rights owners, to find a solution to the vast amount of uncontrolled illegitimate material available through the net. There are also those who believe that ISPs should accept that content contributes to the success and the value of their services, and that they should therefore share some of this success with the creative community. Executives from both sides will offer their views and discuss scenarios for the future relationship between rights owners and ISPs.
