Description - The Law of Copyright and the Internet by Mihaly Ficsor

This work provides detailed coverage of the current state of international treaty law in respect of copyright issues relating to the Internet and E-commerce. The centre-piece of the book is an article-by-article analysis of the two key World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) treaties tackling the subject: the WIPO Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, both negotiated primarily as a response to technological developments such as the Internet. It also includes detailed comparative material showing how the WIPO treaties are being implemented elsewhere in the world, and in particular how the EU, Japan and the US are responding to these key issues. This includes analysis of the key EU Directive on Copyright and Related Rights in the Information Society, which is intended to roll out protection across Europe for copyright holders operating in the digital arena.
