Abstract

The EU's recently adopted DSM Directive marks a break after 30-some years of general convergence in the way EU and US copyright laws have regulated digital technologies. Given the differences in underlying rationales for IP rights and in the legal cultures of the EU and US, the two might pursue divergent paths going forward, particularly in respect of ISP liability and press publisher rules.

Keywords: copyright law, DSM Directive, DMCA, intermediary liability, press publishers, digital technology
