Abstract

With the advent of a global community, which draws its sustenance from the unfettered communication of ideas and expression, it is worth reflecting on the role of copyright law and considering whether the existing legal frameworks of copyright in Europe have the capacity to meet the changing needs of a new generation who have given a whole new meaning to the term ""creativity"" and to that of ""original expression."" This book considers the prevailing tension between the competing values of copyright, the freedom of expression, and the right to information. It also looks at the possibility of introducing a public interest exception to the copyright framework of the European Union as a means of resolving the existing discord, along with a comparative survey of the developments presently taking place in the jurisdictions of France, Germany, and the UK.

Abstract

How are users influenced by social media platforms when they generate content, and does this influence affect users’ compliance with copyright laws? These are pressing questions in today’s internet age, and Regulating Content on Social Media answers them by analysing how the behaviours of social media users are regulated from a copyright perspective. Corinne Tan, an internet governance specialist, compares copyright laws on selected social media platforms, namely Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter and Wikipedia, with other regulatory factors such as the terms of service and the technological features of each platform. This comparison enables her to explore how each platform affects the role copyright laws play in securing compliance from their users. Through a case study detailing the content generative activities undertaken by a hypothetical user named Jane Doe, as well as drawing from empirical studies, the book argues that – in spite of copyright’s purported regulation of certain behaviours – users are 'nudged' by the social media platforms themselves to behave in ways that may be inconsistent with copyright laws.

Abstract

The law, in particular copyright, has a major impact on what remains in collective memory of the great wealth of our cultural heritage. In the digital world where everything is copy and therefore - in the sense of copyright - reproduction, every use of the cultural heritage is also relevant under copyright law. On the other hand, we live in times of rapid media development and an abundance of information, images, films and texts. This is why the challenge of keeping the memory of our cultural heritage alive is all the greater. It is therefore a question of cultural self-assertion how the legal framework conditions for dealing with our cultural heritage are set. What cannot be found online will increasingly disappear. In this respect, the effects of an unbalanced copyright law that does not take sufficient account of cultural heritage can be dramatic. This book brings together various proposals and reflections on how to change the legal framework in order to increase the presence of copyrighted cultural heritage on the Internet. These proposals are written by experts from memory institutions, law and politics, and thus by authors who are well acquainted with the international framework conditions and copyright discourse in Germany.

Abstract

Digital technology has made culture more accessible than ever before. Texts, audio, pictures and video can easily be produced, disseminated, used and remixed using devices that are increasingly user-friendly and affordable. However, along with this technological democratization comes a paradoxical flipside: the norms regulating culture's use —copyright and related rights —have become increasingly restrictive. This book brings together essays by academics, librarians, entrepreneurs, activists and policy makers, who were all part of the EU-funded Communia project. Together the authors argue that the Public Domain —that is, the informational works owned by all of us, be that literature, music, the output of scientific research, educational material or public sector information —is fundamental to a healthy society. The essays range from more theoretical papers on the history of copyright and the Public Domain, to practical examples and case studies of recent projects that have engaged with the principles of Open Access and Creative Commons licensing. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the current debate about copyright and the Internet. It opens up discussion and offers practical solutions to the difficult question of the regulation of culture at the digital age. The free PDF edition of this title was made possible by generous funding received from the European Union (eContentplus framework project ECP-2006-PSI-610001).

Abstract

This book analyzes the EU’s approach to P2P, a digital age technology that highlights the tensions between the Internet and a territorial and fragmented copyright law. It aims at providing the necessary legal qualification and context to understand why the EU, while following an economic and socially onerous path, has thus far failed to achieve its deterrence goals. It is argued that a solution to this conundrum must be based on the use of copyright law and policy as tools for market organization and innovation growth, with respect for rights holders and users (sometimes) opposing interests and the existing legal framework. The best answer to mass online P2P uses seems to be that of collective rights management, as it offers an organized licensing and remuneration system compatible with the interests of stakeholders. This is especially true in the EU, home to a developed and sophisticated market of CMOs, subject to numerous ECJ and Commission decisions, as well as varying EU institutional approaches, all pointing towards a preference for multi-territorial and pan-European licensing models. In this context, this book tests the compatibility of several non-voluntary and voluntary approaches to P2P with international treaties, the acquis or simply strategic policy considerations.

Abstract

Copyright law prevents market failure by making intangible goods exclusive and thus marketable. Exclusivity, however, has a downside: If the right holder prohibits uses without making them himself (in a certain way), out-of-print works lie dormant, innovations are hindered, and scientific journals are made prohibitively more expensive. The remedy could be a compulsory copyright licence. This special type of obligation to contract regulated by copyright law – the right holder must grant a licence, but can negotiate the conditions – leads a shadowy existence in literature and legislation. The aim of the work is to close this gap. First, using a comparative law approach and the goal of “normative efficiency”, the author analyses whether and in which cases a compulsory copyright licence should be regulated. He then examines how the compulsory copyright licence could be designed in order to be effective and compatible with international, EU and constitutional law.

Abstract

"Is the copyright law in the information society going to collapse or may a “cultural flatrate” produce relief? In view of the plentiful everyday occurrence of unauthorized and unpaid utilization of digital creative goods, the paper names the deficient situation of German and international copyright law regarding the different interests of copyright holders and users and presents possible perspectives.The legal classification and feasibility of lump-sum payment models that even in the political discussion apply to be an assumedly simple solution of the so-called digital dilemma is surveyed within the work. At the end, an ambitious but non-illusory vision of a European “cultural flatrate” is proposed.Dr. jur. Seyavash Amini has been a scholarship holder of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich, he founded the IVOCAT GmbH with focus on Intellectual Property Management in Hanover and works as legal advisor and entrepreneur."

Abstract

Das Werk zieht Bilanz über die bisherigen (Miss-)Erfolge des Einsatzes von Digital-Rights-Management-Systemen bei der Online-Vermarktung von urheberrechtlich geschützten Multimediawerken. Weiterhin wird ein neuer Ansatz zum Schutz solcher Werke im Web 2.0 in Form von Filtertechnologien, die digitalisierte geschützte Inhalte identifizieren können, vorgestellt. In rechtlicher Hinsicht wird geprüft, wie sich der Einsatz solcher Technologien durch Betreiber von Social-Media-Diensten auf deren urheberrechtliche Haftung auswirkt, vor allem im Hinblick auf die Haftungsbeschränkungen nach dem TMG und nach dem US-amerikanischen Digital Millennium Copyright Act, die einer rechtsvergleichenden Analyse unterzogen werden.
