In his research, João Pedro Quintais focuses on copyright regulation in an age of widespread online access. Despite the efforts of legislators and copyright owners, there is little evidence that strict enforcement is effective in deterring unauthorised file sharing. Instead, it has become clear that strict enforcement poses a serious threat to fundamental rights and freedoms. In addition, the current regime is ill-equipped to generate adequate remuneration for the mass online use of works. Quintais examines reform proposals that focus on models of remunerated access to copyright works in online environments, known as ‘alternative compensation systems’.
