International Copyright: Principles, Law, and Practice surveys and analyzes the legal doctrines affecting copyright practice around the world, in both transactional and litigation settings.

National copyright rules on protectible subject matter, ownership, term, and rights are covered in detail and compared from country to country, as are topics on moral rights and neighboring rights.

Arguing that the translation of scientific and technical learning materials, and the publication of these translations in a timely and affordable manner, is crucially important in promoting access to scientific and technical knowledge in the developing world, this book examines the relationship between copyright law, translation and access to knowledge. Taking Sri Lanka as a case study in comparison with India and Bangladesh, it identifies factors that have contributed to the unfavourable relationship between copyright law and the timely and affordable translation of scientific and technical learning materials, such as colonisation, international copyright law, the trade interests of the developing economies and a lack of expertise and general lack of awareness surrounding copyright law in the developing world. Highlighting the need to reform international copyright law to promote the needs and interests of developing countries such as Sri Lanka, the book points to a possible way forward for developing countries to achieve this and to address the problem of striking a proper and delicate balance in their copyright laws between the protection of translation rights and the ability of people to access translations of copyright protected scientific and technical learning materials.

Die Reformbestrebungen zum Urheberrechtssystem der Europäischen Union werden in diesem Buch kritisch hinterfragt. Anhand der Kernelemente des harmonisierten Urheberrechtsacquis zeigt das Werk die Defizite der aktuellen Reformvorhaben im Hinblick auf die Schaffung eines digitalen Binnenmarktes auf. Hierzu wird besonders herausgestellt, dass ein grundlegender Ansatz als Basis für ein systematisch strukturiertes europäisches Urheberrecht in den bestehenden Richtlinien und Verordnungen nicht erkennbar ist, aber auch noch nicht erkennbar auf der EU-Ebene entwickelt wird. Diesem Problem werden grundlegende Lösungsansätze entgegengestellt. Hierzu werden drei mögliche Optionen zur legislativen Implementierung der Vorschläge diskutiert. Das Werk positioniert sich deutlich in der aktuellen Debatte zur Reform des europäischen Urheberrechts und bietet Ansatzpunkte, von denen ausgehend ein systematischeres und kohärenteres Urheberrecht erwachsen könnte.

This book explores the interface between copyright and higher education, and their complementarities for the advancement of sustainable human development. In its broader sense, the concept of human development is noted as a set of freedoms and human capabilities that are essential for human flourishing. Adopting a rights-based human development and capability approach (HDCA), this book primarily examines the relevant policy and legal flexibilities under the existing international copyright system, and their implications for access to knowledge required for creative innovation and higher education. Exploring the interfaces between copyright and higher education, this book argues that an unbalanced and restrictive copyright system impedes reasonable access to knowledge, and stifles creative and learning freedoms or capabilities. In effect, a restrictive copyright system results in serious ramifications for sustainable human development. In view of its findings, this book underscores the need for rethinking copyright and reframing its relevant flexibilities as users' rights that are vital for promoting creative and learning capabilities towards sustainable human development. Further, the book emphasizes the complementarities between copyright and higher education, and their joint roles for sustainable human development. Given its application of the HDCA to explore ranges of interlinked topics, this book will be of a great interest to researchers across the fields of intellectual property law, innovation, global development, human rights, and higher education.

The Right of Communication to the Public in EU Copyright Law
Language: en
Pages: 280
Authors: Justin Koo
Categories: Law
Type: BOOK - Published: 2019-05-30 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

This monograph conducts a comprehensive analysis of the EU right of communication to the public, one of the exclusive rights under EU copyright law, and provides an alternative framework for its interpretation and application. The present state of the law is unsatisfactory; there is uncertainty in the acquis communautaire and courts at the EU and domestic levels have struggled to apply the right. Therefore, the book identifies the problems with the existing right of communication to the public and proposes recommendations for reform. In addition to reforming the scope of the right of communication to the public, the jurisdiction and applicable law in relation to the right are analysed and changes are recommended. Thus, the book covers both the scope and practicalities of a coherent and effective reform of the right. In light of the continuing development and accompanying tribulations with this right at the EU level, this book provides a topical and timely analysis that will be of interest to academics and practitioners working on EU copyright law.
