About a new EU directive

Eleonora Rosati is Professor of Intellectual Property Law and Director of the Institute for Intellectual Property and Market Law at Stockholm University. She has repeatedly been named as a particularly influential person in her field and is the author of several articles and books on intellectual property law. Her book "Copyright in the Digital Single Market" is dedicated to a seminal EU copyright directive adopted in 2019, which Member States - including Sweden - are currently transposing into their national laws. 

It is not difficult to see why this book, the first to be entirely devoted to Directive 2019/790, is of great use to practitioners and other interested parties. The book provides an article-by-article commentary to all the provisions of the Directive. By analyzing the history, objectives, and content of each and every provision, as well as the relationship between some of those provisions and between the Directive and the pre-existing acquis, this book provides a rational, consistent and detailed explanation of the Directive as a whole and of its individual contents. Definitely a must-have in any kind of Copyright law library.
