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

Although open content licences only account for a fraction of all copyright licences currently in force in the copyright world, the mentality change initated by the open content movement is here to stay. To promote the use of open content licences, it is important to better understand the theoretical underpinnings of these licences, as well as to gain insight on the practical advantages and inconveniences of their use. This book assembles chapters written by renowned European scholars on a number of selected issues relating to open content licensing. It offers a comprehensive and objective study of the principles of open content from a European intellectual property law perspective and of their possible implementation in the areas of scientific publishing, of the re-use of government information, of the dissemination of works held by cultural heritage institutions and of the exercise of rights on music phonograms.

Abstract

The debate over the use of copyright law to prevent competition and interoperability in the global software industry.We live in an interoperable world. Computer hardware and software products from different manufacturers can exchange data within local networks and around the world using the Internet. The competition enabled by this compatibility between devices has led to fast-paced innovation and prices low enough to allow ordinary users to command extraordinary computing capacity. In Interfaces on Trial 2.0, Jonathan Band and Masanobu Katoh investigate an often overlooked factor in the development of today's interoperabilty: the evolution of copyright law. Because software is copyrightable, copyright law determines the rules for competition in the information technology industry. This book—a follow-up to Band and Katoh's successful 1995 book Interfaces on Trial—examines the debates surrounding the use of copyright law to prevent competition and interoperability in the global software industry in the last fifteen years.Band and Katoh are longtime advocates for interoperable devices but present a reasoned view of contentious issues related to interoperability issues in the United States, the European Union, and the Pacific Rim. They discuss such topics as the protectability of interface specifications, the permissibility of reverse engineering (and legislative and executive endorsement of pro-interoperability case law), the interoperability exception to the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the interoperability cases decided under it, the enforceability of contractural restrictions on reverse engineering; and recent legal developments affecting the future of interoperability, including those related to open source-software and software patents.

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.
