The Meaning of "Communication to the Public" Under Article 3(1) of the Info Society Directive

Enrico Bonadio, City University London, City Law School, has published 'Communication to the Public’ in FAPL v. QC Leisure and Murphy v. Media Protection Services: The Advocate General’s Opinion in volume 6 of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice (March 2011). Here is the abstract.


On 3rd February 2011 Advocate General, Professor Juliane Kokott, gave her much awaited opinion in FAPL v. QC Leisure YouTube and Karen Murphy v. Media Protection Services Ltd (Joined Cases C-403/08 and C-429/08). She gave her interpretation of ‘communication to the public’ under Article 3(1) of the Info Society Directive and concluded that the showing of live Premier League matches in pubs does not amount to such communication.
