In the United States, this is known as copyright legislation. It is addressed at copyright owners who believe their rights have been infringed upon over the Internet, particularly not only under United States copyright law. The DMCA also addresses the rights and duties of OSPs and ISPs (Internet Service Providers), the companies whose servers or networks may contain infringing content.
