Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union

A new monograph by Dr Eleonora Rosati, iCLIC Director and Associate Professor in IP Law, has been released today.

Published by Oxford University Press, Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union focuses specifically on the role, action, and legacy of the CJEU in the field of copyright, providing an exclusive survey that covers two decades (1998–2018) of decisions in this area. 
The book consists of three parts. The first part explores the role of the CJEU in copyright cases, extracts the key standards employed in copyright case law, explains their meaning and significance, and undertakes a novel statistical analysis aimed at mapping relations between said standards. The second part concerns CJEU action (and vision) in respect of three key areas: economic rights, exceptions and limitations, and enforcement. The final part focuses on CJEU legacy broadly intended. It tackles the effect on national copyright laws (also discussing Brexit) and the current policy discourse around EU copyright reform. 
The book contains a foreword by Maciej Szpunar, First Advocate General at the CJEU, who wrote: “I am certain that the book will contribute to an awareness of the many challenges facing copyright protection, both on the EU and global level, as well as the importance of EU law and the Court of Justice.”

An official book launch event is due to take place on 26 March 2019. A panel composed of leading copyright specialists, judges, and academics will discuss the role of the CJEU in the field of copyright. Details are available here.
