Abstract

How does copyright law take into account the interests of third parties, especially the general public interest in the greatest possible dissemination of knowledge and culture? Twelve questions have been asked to copyright law experts from more than forty countries about the following matters: categories of works and subject-matter, eligibility conditions, duration, 'users’ rights', the three-step test, misuse, differentiations between categories of right holders, TPM, relations of copyright law to other law areas such as fundamental rights, competition law, consumer protection law, media law etc. This article gives an overview of the answers received.

Keywords: copyright law, three-step test, fair use, users' right, limitation
