Abstract

On 14 September 2016 the European Commission published a package of proposals aimed at the modernisation of copyright within the digital single market.

This copyright package is of particular interest to the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, which has been committed since its founding in 1966 to the analysis and development of intellectual property and competition law on the basis of established scientific principles. The Institute has responded to all of the proposals included in the copyright package in a Position Statement. It includes several parts and chapters examining whether the suggested provisions are adequate for reaching their intended objectives. In response to certain critical evaluations, a number of alternatives have been suggested. Each part and chapter has been published on the Institute’s website in the course of recent months. These have been brought together in the present e-book.

Keywords: EU copyright, exceptions and limitations, text and data mining, out-of-commerce works, Marrakesh Treaty, fair compensation, copyright contract law, platform liability, neighbouring rights, press publishers, cross-border content circulation, cross-border broadcasting, retransmission
