This course is the second course in the Master of Laws Programme in European Intellectual Property Law. It is an elective course. The course aims to provide insight into the development of new copyright law, the extent of copyright protection in the digital society, infringement, and jurisdiction and litigation when infringement of rights occurs, particularly online. The course also discusses alternative or additional means of protection such as contracts and so-called technological protection measures, as well as traditional and modern protections against infringements of copyrights. The ease of mobility across borders and availability through the internet requires taking into account the rules and approaches of private international law when analysing copyright issues.
