  • Introduction: Copyright law and subjectivity : a relational approach
  • Connected origins : locating relationality in copyright history
  • From the piratical to the creative user
  • Creative practice and relational authorship
  • Locating the user and reforming the law
  • Reimagining the pirate : approaching infringement relationally
  • Producing the pirate : the courtroom and cultural power
  • Conclusion.
An examination of subjectivity in copyright law, analyzing authors, users, and pirates through a relational framework. In current debates over copyright law, the author, the user, and the pirate are almost always invoked. Some in the creative industries call for more legal protection for authors; activists and academics promote user rights and user-generated content; and online pirates openly challenge the strict enforcement of copyright law. In this book, James Meese offers a new way to think about these three central subjects of copyright law, proposing a relational framework that encompasses all three. Meese views authors, users, and pirates as interconnected subjects, analyzing them as a relational triad. He argues that addressing the relationships among the three subjects will shed light on how the key conceptual underpinnings of copyright law are justified in practice. Meese presents a series of historical and contemporary examples, from nineteenth-century cases of book abridgement to recent controversies over the reuse of Instagram photos. He not only considers the author, user, and pirate in terms of copyright law, but also explores the experiential element of subjectivity -- how people understand and construct their own subjectivity in relation to these three subject positions. Meese maps the emergence of the author, user, and pirate over the first two centuries of copyright's existence; describes how regulation and technological limitations turned people from creators to consumers; considers relational authorship; explores practices in sampling, music licensing, and contemporary art; examines provisions in copyright law for user-generated content; and reimagines the pirate as an innovator.

  • Introduction
  • The theoretical framework of copyright propertization
  • Droit d'auteur, copyright and the historical epiphanies of propertization
  • The EU copyright model, or how to lose the compass in a systemic chaos
  • The different effects of copyright propertization : EU vs. member states
  • The social function of copyright as property right
  • Building and harmonizing EU copyright law within the property framework : a four-dimensional experiment of systematization
  • Conclusions.
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. To prove the point, the book provides a comprehensive analysis of causes and effects of propertization in copyright history, comparing the impact of private and constitutional property doctrines in selected national experiences with the unsystematic propertization of EU copyright. The author argues for a systemization of EU copyright law, and provides practical examples of how propertization could help tackling the pitfalls of the harmonization process, achieving a greater interpretative coherence and a more stable copyright balance. Academics and policy makers engaged in the debate on EU copyright harmonization will find the multidisciplinary approach employed in this work compelling. Judges, practitioners and graduate students interested in deepening their knowledge of the construction of EU copyright will also find in this book an all-encompassing resource, rich in practical and theoretical insight.

  • Culture clashes

  • The myth of unoriginality
  • Authorship, power, and responsibility
  • Toward an ontology of authored works
  • The rights of authors
  • The rights of others
  • Appropriation and transformation
  • Afterword.
The art scene today is one of appropriation of remixing, reusing, and recombining the works of other artists. From the musical mash-ups of Girl Talk to the pop-culture borrowings of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, it's clear that the artistic landscape is shifting which leads to some tricky legal and philosophical questions. In this up-to-date, thorough, and accessible analysis of the right to copyright, Darren Hudson Hick works to reconcile the growing practice of artistic appropriation with innovative views of artists' rights, both legal and moral. Engaging with long-standing debates about the nature of originality, authorship, and artists' rights, Hick examines the philosophical challenges presented by the role of intellectual property in the artworld and vice versa. Using real-life examples of artists who have incorporated copyrighted works into their art, he explores issues of artistic creation and the nature of infringement as they are informed by analytical aesthetics and legal and critical theory. Ultimately, Artistic License provides a critical and systematic analysis of the key philosophical issues that underlie copyright policy, rethinking the relationship between artist, artwork, and the law.

  • Practical issues
  • UK artist's resale right from 1st January 2012/death of the artist
  • International aspects
  • Conclusion.
"This new and revised third edition takes stock of over 10 years' experience of artist's resale right (ARR), also called droit de suite, in the UK. As well as offering updated guidance, it also includes a commentary on recent European and international developments and the impact of Brexit on ARR in the UK. ARR gives artists and their heirs a royalty on re-sales of their art works. This intellectual property right, which forms part of copyright law, is originally of French origin and was first introduced into UK law in 2006 to implement the 2001 EU Directive on ARR. ARR remains a right with a strong European focus-it is not currently implemented in a number of significant art markets outside the EU. Nevertheless the establishment in 2006 of an ARR regime in the UK (the second largest global art market), along with EU harmonization of the right, have been influential in encouraging states such as the USA, China, and Switzerland to consider its adoption. This book, first published in 2006, continues to...[examine] the background to the directive, UK ARR and its implementation in the UK. The practical guidance offered is essential to all those with an interest in the operation of the right in the UK-artists, collecting societies/CMOs, art dealers, auction houses, art galleries, collectors, and their legal advisers. The work includes a copy of the ARR Directive and the consolidated UK Artist's Resale Right Regulations."-- Provided by publisher.

  • Licence-created monopolies : controlling use through restrictive licensing terms
  • Legal mechanisms for mitigating the effect of restrictive licensing provisions
  • On reverse engineering and decompilation
  • The idea-expression dichotomy and its role in software-related disputes
  • The combined effect of copyright and restrictive licensing provisions
  • Patenting software
  • Protecting user interfaces
  • Trade secrets and the software industry.
Although the law of infringement is relatively straightforward on the copying of literal and textual elements of software, it is the copying of non-literal and functional elements that poses complex and topical questions in the context of intellectual property (IP) protection. In many cases, it is these non-literal and functional elements that contain the real value of a software product. This book concerns the copying of non-literal and functional elements of software in both the United States (US) and European Union (EU), using a holistic approach to address the most topical questions facing experts concerned with legal protection of software products across a range of technological platforms. The book focuses on four distinct but interrelated areas: contract, copyright, trade secrets, and trade-dress; as well as dealing more briefly with patent law, designs, and competition law, discussing these areas separately and in relation to one another. The book discusses software as a multi-layered functional product, setting the scene for other legal discussions by highlighting software's unique characteristics. It examines models for the provision of software, addressing licensing patterns and overall enforceability, as well as the statutory and judicial tools for regulating the use of such licences. It further assesses the protection of non-literal and functional software elements under EU and US copyright law, focusing on internal architecture and behavioural elements. The application of trade secrets law to software is examined under traditional, online, and cloud models. Finally, it examines the application of trade dress protection to software's 'look and feel', particularly relating to the highly topical area of cloud environments. Protecting Software offers a unique outlook on contemporary issues concerning the legal protection of computer software.

  • Introduction: Challenges for copyright in the online environment
  • Copyright rewind : precedents for compensation systems
  • Alternative compensation systems : taxonomy of legalisation proposals
  • Between rights and limitations : mapping the space for the legalisation of the online use of copyright works
  • Copyright reform : admissibility of legalisation under the three step test and the objectives of EU copyright law
  • Summary and conclusions : towards access and remuneration.
"[This book] examines pragmatic legal solutions that enable Internet users to access works in the digital environment by exploring the flexibilities in EU copyright law in search of a consistent regulation of non-commercial online use. In addition to proving virtually impossible, online enforcement of copyright may be undesirable because it risks encroaching upon fundamental rights and freedoms. However, the problem remains that creators are often not fairly remunerated for the online use of their works. This book addresses the need for legalisation schemes that favour remunerated access over exclusivity and enforcement for large-scale online use by individuals, while assuring remuneration to rights holders and promoting the development of the information society."-- Publisher's website.

This book addresses the key issues, challenges and implications arising out of changes in the copyright law and corresponding judicial responses. Using concrete examples, the book does not assume any prior knowledge of copyright law, but brings together leading intellectual property researchers to consider the significant role of copyright law in shaping the needs of the modern digital world. It provides an insight into two distinct arenas: copyright and digital media. The exponential increase in the ability to multiply and disseminate information by digital means has sparked numerous conflicts pertaining to copyright - and in turn has prompted lawmakers to expand the scope of copyright protection in the digital age. Bearing in mind the new questions that the advent of the digital age has raised on the role and function of copyright, the book presents a collection of papers largely covering new frontiers and changing horizons especially in this area. The contributions intensively address core issues including the exhaustion principle, copyright and digital media, liability of hosting service providers, the originality requirement, accessibility to published works for the visually disabled, criminalization of copyright infringement, and software protection under copyright law, among others. Consisting of 14 papers, this book will be equally interesting to researchers, policymakers, practitioners and lawmakers, especially those active in the field of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

  • Introdution: o copyright users have rights?
  • User rights to commercial copies of copyright works
  • The nature and function of exceptions to copyright infringement
  • In search of copyright user remedies
  • Redefining goods, services, sales, and licences
  • First sale or exhaustion doctrine
  • Digital locks, physical objects, and immaterial works
  • Why user rights?
  • User property, user rights, and user privileges
  • One last word.
This is the first book to offer an in-depth investigation of the unsettled nature, scope and dynamics of copyright user rights in an increasingly dematerialized environment. Combining a detailed theoretical framework with practical applications, the book provides a comprehensive perspective on copyright user rights, exploring the nature of commercial copies of copyright works, of exceptions to copyright infringement, and how they are shaped to a large extent by traditional concepts of private law (e.g. property, goods, services, sales, and licences). Using property and contract law and theory, it addresses the competing interests of copyright holders and users in the same object, and points out the double standards in how the rights of copyright holders and copyright users are dealt with. It argues that the property component of user rights has been largely neglected and needs to be brought to the fore, to give the protection that users deserve, without neglecting the rights users should have as they increasingly experience copyright works through services. With the onset of an increasingly digital age, it emphasises how traditional concepts of private law need to adapt for adequately dealing with the dematerialization of copies of copyright works and user rights. It proposes a clearer view on the justification and nature of user rights, with possible gradations of powers for users, and suggests how courts and legislatures may address contract terms that weaken user rights. This book provides vital tools for law- and policy-makers worldwide who seek to achieve the proper balance between the competing rights and interests of copyright holders, copyright users, and the public domain.

"Since the Economic Espionage Act (EEA) was enacted in 1996, it has steadily assumed a more important and visible role as a law enforcement tool. In 1999, then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder stated that because intellectual property theft was 'soaring,' the Department of Justice had 'concluded that we must make these types of crime a major law enforcement priority,' and promulgated 'the first, comprehensive inter-agency plan to combat the growing surge in the theft of intellectual property.' In 2013, Holder reported that between 2000 and 2010, DOJ had 'secured well over 100 convictions in cases involving criminal trade secret thefts.' This handbook is intended as a practical guide for prosecutors, defense lawyers and court system as the investigation and prosecution of economic espionage and trade secret theft assume a more central place in the U.S. criminal justice system."-- Provided by publisher.

  • Introduction
  • The argument for a database directive in Europe
  • Feist, not a new-line of jurisprudence
  • The effect of Feist in the US database market
  • Threshold of author's own intellectual creation
  • Feist standard in the threshold assigned to AOIC
  • Uncertainties with sui generis database right : negative interpretation of Feist
  • Concluding remarks.
Connected to the jurisprudence surrounding the copyrightability of a factual compilation, this book locates the footprints of the standard envisaged in a US Supreme court decision (Feist) in Europe. In particular, it observes the extent of similarity of such jurisprudence to the standard adopted and deliberated in the European Union. Many a times the reasons behind law making goes unnoticed. The compelling situations and the history existing prior to an enactment helps in understanding the balance that exists in a particular legislation. While looking at the process of enacting the Database Directive (96/9/EC), this book reflects upon the concern that was expressed with the outcome of Feist decision in Europe.
