    PERANAN ISP DALAM ISU PELANGGARAN HAK CIPTA
    DAN KEBEBASAN BERSUARA DI INTERNET

    by
    AHMAD SHAMSUL ABD AZIZ,* RUSNIAH AHMAD,**

    Pengenalan

    Pemberi Perkhidmatan Internet (ISP) merupakan sebuah entiti komersil yang membenarkan seseorang individu untuk suatu capaian (akses) menerusi komputer kepada Internet.[1] ISP menurut seksyen 43B Akta Hakcipta 1987 adalah seseorang yang memberikan perkhidmatan berhubung dengan, atau mengadakan penyambungan bagi, capaian, pemancaran atau penghalaan data. Isu hak kebebasan bersuara dan ISP timbul apabila ia melibatkan pertembungan antara pematuhan undang-undang hak cipta bagi melindungi pemunya hak cipta dan peranannya dalam menyediakan capaian kepada para pengguna. Perlindungan kepada ISP di bawah kebebasan bersuara terfokus kepada perkara berkaitan kebebasan berkomunikasi oleh pengguna. Dalam kata lain, perlindungan kepada hak kebebasan bersuara itu melindungi cara berkomunikasi di mana pengawalan dibuat oleh entiti tertentu sama ada orang sebenar atau pemilik rangkaian jalur lebar.[2]

    ISP dalam Isu Hak Cipta dan Kebebasan Bersuara

    ISP berperanan dalam menentukan arah kebebasan bersuara di Internet. Pengetahuan perlu sampai ke pihak ISP berkenaan wujudnya aktiviti pelanggaran hak cipta sebelum ISP berhak untuk mengambil sesuatu tindakan. Isu-isu kebebasan bersuara oleh pengguna dalam menggunakan suatu karya berhak cipta dan peranan ISP dapat dilihat dalam perkara-perkara mengenai penamatan akaun serta pengawalan capaian pengguna, pemberitahuan untuk melumpuhkan capaian dan memperlahankan kelajuan Internet.
