Right to privacy of electronic communication; protection of personal data; copyright; internet providers; cyber crime
Research covers the analysis of ongoing clash of interests on three different types of legal rights: right to privacy of communication, right to protection of personal data and copyright. These three groups of rights are subjected to analysis of current legal framework in Republic of Serbia, through the prism of conflict of rights when electronic communications are being used for copyrights infringements. This is especially visible within analysis of misconduct of internet operators in Serbia who use socalled ‘retained data’ on their subscribers in order to react to alleged copyrights infringements. Paper is based on their actions, as well as actions and rights of subscribers and copyright owners, all with the aim to point out deficiencies of the current system of legal protection which cause violations of right to privacy of communication and right to protection of personal data.
