Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study whether the activity of the so-called ‘link-listing websites’, which offer links to websites, servers or computers of third parties in which audiovisual, musical or literary works are illegally made available to the public, constitutes a breach of the Spanish regulation on intellectual property rights. In this regard, the author of this paper proposes to categorize the activity of this type of websites in the scope of the public communication right.
