Music Industry’s Global Anti-Piracy Strategy Leaked

While there is no way to prove the authenticity of this document, it is definitely interesting to get a glimpse inside the "mind" of the music industry.

A confidential internal report of the music industry outfit IFPI has been inadvertently made available online by the group itself. Penned by their Head of Internet Anti-piracy Operations, the report details the global strategy for the major recording labels of IFPI. Issues covered include everything from torrent sites to cyberlockers, what behavior IFPI expects of Internet service providers, the effectiveness of site blocking, and how pirates are accessing unreleased music from industry sources.
