How Enforcement Works: Despite the centrality of enforcement to Internet policy debates, there is still surprisingly little work on its actual practice: how it is organized in the public and private sectors, how much it costs, how effective it is, what role the courts play, and so on.  This session will explore recent work and opportunities for research on the practices of enforcement, from the growth of distinctive ‘enforcement industries,’ to efforts to estimate economic impact, to accounts of border enforcement against counterfeit goods.
