Copyright and Fundamental Rights in the Digital Age: A Comparative Analysis in Search of a Common Constitutional Ground

About the eBook

This timely and thought-provoking book explores how the protection of copyright in the digital age requires a reconsideration of how this is balanced with other fundamental rights and freedoms. Analysing the impact of the rise of digital technologies and the internet on copyright regimes, it particularly focuses on the effects of recent reforms to the EU's legal framework for the protection and enforcement of copyright.<P><P> Taking a comparative approach, contributions from both leading and emerging scholars offer a variety of perspectives and methodologies through which to examine copyright law in the context of the digital economy. They investigate issues such as the relationship between private and public enforcement mechanisms, the parallels and divergences between US and European approaches, and the influence of the Court of Justice of the EU and the European Court of Human Rights on national courts and the European legal regime.<P> Scholars of comparative and European law, as well as those with a particular interest in copyright in the context of digital technologies will find this an essential read. It will also prove useful to practitioners looking to understand recent trends in the interpretation of the EU legal framework around copyright.<P><P> Contributors include: M. Bassini, G.G. Codiglione, F. Macmillan, M.L. Montagnani, T. Mylly, O. Pollicino, E. Psychogiopoulou, G.M. Riccio, O. Soldatov, A. Strowel, A. Trapova
