Hilty and Moscon on Modernization of the EU Copyright Rules Position Statement of the Max Planck Institute For Innovation and Competition @MP_Innovation
Reto Hilty, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition; University of Zurich; Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, and Valentina Moscon, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition; Università degli Studi di Trento - Faculty of Law, have published Modernisation of the EU Copyright Rules Position Statement of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition as Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition Research Paper No. 17-12. Here is the abstract.
On 14 September 2016 the European Commission published a package of proposals aimed at the modernisation of copyright within the digital single market. This copyright package is of particular interest to the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, which has been committed since its founding in 1966 to the analysis and development of intellectual property and competition law on the basis of established scientific principles. The Institute has responded to all of the proposals included in the copyright package in a Position Statement. It includes several parts and chapters examining whether the suggested provisions are adequate for reaching their intended objectives. In response to certain critical evaluations, a number of alternatives have been suggested. Each part and chapter has been published on the Institute’s website in the course of recent months. These have been brought together in the present e-book.
