Copyright Law in the Digital Age: Malum in Se and Malum Prohibitum

Abstract:     
This lecture is about the underlying purpose and function of the copyright law in light of digital technology. That technology raises the question, how does one tailor the law to accommodate to technological change, and how does one have a law that is meaningful and that will be to some extent at least respected? An act of infringement needs to be defined such that it is indeed malum in se rather than simply malum prohibitum.
