Module overview

To those interested in intellectual property (IP) law these are incredibly challenging and exciting times. At the EU level, debate around further harmonisation and review especially of copyright law has intensified over the past few years, and is very lively at the moment also on account of the activity (and activism) of the Court of Justice of the European Union. EU Member States have been reforming their own laws, also to provide a legal environment that favours innovation and creativity. Reform proposals have been also tabled in a number of Asian countries and Australia, considering whether the approaches under US and EU laws should be also taken there.
