Towards A New Core International Copyright Norm: The Reverse Three-Step Test

Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review, Vol. 9, p. 1, Spring 2005

Abstract:     
This paper argues that international copyright treaties, such as the WTO TRIPS Agreement, should no longer be developed as sets of minimum standards with a standardized exception filter, namely the three-step test, but rather include a normative standard for the copyright rights themselves. In seeking harmony between rights and exceptions, and in light of copyright haphazard evolution (by simply adding new rights when a new way of using protected content was invented), a single new core norm is proposed: the reverse three-step test.
