The Hungarian National Report on the Balance of Copyright was prepared for the XVIIIth International Congress of Comparative Law, held in July 2010 in Washington D.C. (USA). The report introduces the features of the Hungarian statute law, case law and copyright theory in respect of the issue of limitations and exceptions in the copyright regime. The report specially focuses on the different categories of works (subject matter), types of limitations and exceptions, tools that contribute to achieve "balance" within the regime, and the three-step test. The report includes the most important court decisions and the expert opinions of the Hungarian Copyright Expert Council.
