Abstract

This article will examine some issues raised by the Italian Communications Authority’s December 2013 regulation on online copyright, and will carry out a review of the current development of copyright protection in Italy. It will examine the implications of the new regulation, including the potential normative shortcomings that according to some scholarly literature may hinder the legitimacy and effective enforcement of its provisions. In that perspective, this article will argue that the current regulation on online copyright constitutes a valuable initiative.
