This paper reports on a large-scale measurement study about the effects of measures against copyright infringement on One-Click Hosters (or “cyberlockers”). While such efforts are visible, their overall impact appears to be rather limited. The paper also discusses proposed new measures (such as SOPA) and finds that they may not be as successful as their proponents might expect.
