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

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.
