'This hybrid volume, part commentary, part primary sources, with questions to stimulate further thinking, serves both as a teaching tool and as a manual for lawyers who seek a comprehensive overview of EU intellectual property law. the book aims at a generalist legal audience, with very a helpful précis of international law, including the major multilateral treaties, as well as a summary of the EU legal framework that non-Europeans will find highly useful. the authors explore the full range of traditional and emerging IP rights. They also provide in-depth analysis of remedies and of the international private law issues that increasingly arise in contemporary complex IP litigation.' - Jane Ginsburg, Columbia Law School, US

. . . an important contribution to the study of EU copyright law. It provides a good overview of different aspects of copyright law in the European Union and comprises a prevailing guide which undoubtedly will be of great use to both academics and practitioners. Ghufran Sukkaryeh, European Intellectual Property Review Estelle Derclaye s book is indeed a Handbook on EU copyright law, since practically every aspect of copyright law is examined through the lens of EU law by foremost European specialists. But it goes further than providing an understanding of what has been and ought to be happening in EU copyright law: each chapter can touch a raw nerve in the copyright law of any country in the world. Rarely has it been so obvious that EU copyright law can be considered a laboratory for copyright law in general. Ysolde Gendreau, Université de Montréal, Canada It has been over fifteen years since the EU started harmonising copyright law. This original Handbook takes stock and questions what the future of EU copyright should be. What went wrong with the harmonisation acquis? What did the directives do well? Should copyright be further harmonised? Each of the 25 recognised copyright experts from different European countries gives a critical account of the EU harmonisation carried out on several aspects of copyright law (subject-matter, originality, duration, rights, defences etc.), and asks whether further harmonisation is desirable or not. This way, the Handbook not only gives guidance to European institutions as to what remains to be done or needs to be remedied but is also the first overall picture of current and future EU copyright law. This Handbook will be of great interest to academics and intellectual property lawyers, as well as general commercial lawyers, across Europe because it reviews European directives in the field of copyright and also the relationships between copyright and other laws. Policymakers will also find much to interest them in the discussions regarding the future of EU copyright law and the proposed amendments to the existing legal framework.

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Law - Media, Multimedia Law, Copyright, Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, course: Master of Law and Business (MLB)-Copyright Law, language: English, abstract: Copyright law is considered to be one of the most dynamically developing fields of the law. This dynamic character of development has been mentioned in the European Copyright legislation as well. Although the significant challenges to this legislation have already been successfully overcome, the critics show that it still has the long way to go, before reaching more complete and advanced level of harmonization. Together with the positive evaluations, the actual process of harmonizing European Copyright law has deserved some critics as well. Therefore, while implementing the norms of that law into the national legislation, especially in the countries not belonging to the European Union, the legislators have to take into account both – the positive and negative aspects observed in the European level, in order to guarantee the successful realization of the European Copyright law implementation. Georgian example has been provided, in order to acknowledge the challenges of European Copyright law implementation into the legislation of the country, which does not belong to the European Union. However, the process of harmonizing Georgian Copyright legislation with that of the European Union has been activated during slightly more than a decade. This period has been characterized by the high level of dynamic developments, reflected in the changes and amendments. The main characteristics of development of the Georgian Copyright law up until now have to be taken into account for the process of future harmonization. The process of European Copyright law implementation has its own challenges as well. An abstract desire of harmonizing the European law should not be enough to overcome these challenges. Rather, the legislator has to take into consideration not only the European law which has to be implemented, but the existing reality and the logic of development in the national law as well. Similarly, during the implementation, balance has to be found between the general interests of harmonization and national interests of the existing legislation. In our opinion, this kind of ‘balance-based’ approach would lead to the successful realization of the European Copyright law harmonization into the Georgian legislation.

Beyond specificities of each intellectual property right, some principles and rules are common to all or several intellectual property rights. Therefore certain statutory provisions enacted at European or international levels are of great importance for all or various intellectual property rights. Intellectual property is one of the branches of law where the international harmonization started the earliest thanks to international conventions (e.g. the Paris Convention of 20 March 1883 for the Protection of Industrial Property). Harmonization is still at work today (e.g. with the Agreement on Trade-related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) and has been carried on to a high degree at a regional level thanks to the secondary legislation of the European Union (especially thanks to directives and regulations). This volume aims to offer the reader a rapid understanding of some of these European or international texts which deal with some general and jurisdictional issues and are very important from a practical point of view. Key features include: * An article-by-article commentary on the relevant international treaties and European instruments * It is intended to provide the reader with a short and straightforward explanation of the principles of law to be drawn from each provision * Editors and authors are all prominent specialists (academics and practitioners) in the field of international and European IP law Concise International and European IP Law - TRIPS, Paris Convention, European Enforcement and Transfer of Technology is part of 'Concise IP', a series of five volumes of commentary on European intellectual property legislation edited by Thomas Dreier, Charles Gielen and Richard Hacon. The formula of this series is based on the successful German and Dutch formula 'KurzKommentar' and 'Tekst en Commentaar'. The five volumes cover: Patents and related matters, Trademarks and designs, Copyrights and neighbouring rights, IT and a general volume including jurisdictional issues.

With an acceleration in the last decades, the language of property, piracy and theft has become mainstream in copyright matters. Scholars have argued that this latent propertization has progressively led to the undue expansion of copyright and an enclosure of knowledge, causing clashes with users’ fundamental rights and EU social and cultural policies. Challenging the validity of such critiques, Propertizing European Copyright demonstrates that these distortive effects are only the result of mishandled property rhetoric and that a commitment to copyright propertization could enable a more internally consistent and balanced development of EU copyright law.
