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.

Keywords: Intellectual property, copyright, IT, communication to the public
