Art and Copyright

Art and Copyright

Author: Simon Stokes Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/12/2019

In recent years the intellectual property protection afforded to works of art has received increased attention from artists, museums, galleries, auction houses, publishers and their professional staff and legal advisers, as well as from those teaching or studying copyright and/or the law of cultural property. This was the first text to examine in detail the intellectual property rights protecting artistic works and artists' rights generally in the United Kingdom. First published in 2001, Art and Copyright has established itself as a leading text in the field. Now revised and updated, the second edition includes expanded coverage of Artist's Resale Right and the relationship between designs law and artistic works, as well as greater coverage of new media and art, and digital developments generally. It also includes additional precedent materials and checklists. It remains an invaluable work for all those involved in art law and for intellectual property lawyers involved with the exploitation and/or sale of artistic works, as well as for intellectual property academics, researchers, law students, curators, publishers, artists, gallery owners and all those interested in how the law protects artistic works.

Die Neuabgrenzung Von Urheber- Und Designrecht Kritische Wuerdigung Der Aufgabe Der Stufentheorie Durch Den Bgh

Die Neuabgrenzung Von Urheber- Und Designrecht Kritische Wuerdigung Der Aufgabe Der Stufentheorie Durch Den Bgh

Author: Cornelia Bettina Gersch Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/09/2019

Nach der Stufentheorie erhielt Design als angewandte Kunst nur bei deutlichem UEberragen der Durchschnittsgestaltung Urheberrechtsschutz. Mit dem Geburtstagszugs-Urteil gab der Bundesgerichtshof diese Theorie auf und setzte das Schutzniveau fur angewandte Kunst mit dem der rein bildenden Kunst gleich. Die Autorin untersucht, ob dies gerechtfertigt ist - insbesondere mit Blick auf die Vorgaben der Europaischen Union fur Urheber- und Designrecht. Sie analysiert das aktuelle Schutzniveau von Design nach den neuen Schutzkriterien des Bundesgerichtshofs. Dabei beleuchtet sie die praktischen Folgen fur den Schutz und die Nutzung von Design. Zuletzt eroertert sie Alternativen fur den urheberrechtlichen Schutz von Design, auch mit Blick auf die Rechtslage in Frankreich und Grossbritannien.

Public Rights Copyright's Public Domains

Public Rights Copyright's Public Domains

Access to works in the public domain is an important source of human creativity and autonomy, whether in the arts, scientific research or online discourse. But what can users actually do with works without obtaining the permission of a copyright owner? Readers will be surprised to find how many different kinds of permitted usage exist around the world. This book offers a comprehensive international and comparative account of the copyright public domain. It identifies fifteen categories of public rights and gives a detailed legal explanation of each, showing how their implementation differs between jurisdictions. Through this analysis, the authors aim to restore balance to copyright policy debates, and to contribute to such debates by making practical law reform proposals. A major intervention in the field of intellectual property law and copyright, this book will appeal to lawyers, scholars and those involved in the administration of copyright law.

A Copyright Gambit On the Need for Exclusive Rights in Digitised Versions of Public Domain Textual Materials in Europe

A Copyright Gambit On the Need for Exclusive Rights in Digitised Versions of Public Domain Textual Materials in Europe

Author: Sunimal Mendis Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/07/2019

European memory institutions are repositories of a wealth of rare documents that record public domain content. These documents are often stored in 'dark-archives' to which members of the public are granted limited access, resulting in the public domain content recorded therein being relegated to a form of 'forgotten-knowledge'. Digitisation offers a means by which such public domain content can be made speedily and easily accessible to users around the world. For this reason, it has been hailed as the harbinger of a new 'digital renaissance'. This book examines the topical issue of the need to preserve exclusivity over digitised versions of rare documents recording public domain content. Based on data gathered through an empirical survey of digitisation projects undertaken by fourteen memory institutions in five European Union Member States, it argues for the introduction of exclusive rights in digitised versions of rare documents recording public domain textual content as a means of incentivising private-sector investment in the digitisation process. It concludes by presenting a detailed proposal for a European Union Regulation that would grant memory institutions a limited-term related right in digitised versions of rare documents held in their collections subject to stringent exceptions and limitations that are designed to safeguard user interests.

Wann Ist Design Kunst Im Sinne Des Urheberrechts? Das Erfordernis Der Kuenstlerischen Leistung ALS Schutzvoraussetzung Bei Produktgestaltungen Nach Der geburtstagszug -Entscheidung

Wann Ist Design Kunst Im Sinne Des Urheberrechts? Das Erfordernis Der Kuenstlerischen Leistung ALS Schutzvoraussetzung Bei Produktgestaltungen Nach Der geburtstagszug -Entscheidung

Author: Aline Schmidt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/05/2019

In der Geburtstagszug -Entscheidung gab der BGH die besondere Gestaltungshoehe fur Werke angewandter Kunst auf, hielt jedoch an dem Erfordernis der kunstlerischen Leistung fest. Diese Publikation untersucht, ob die Neupositionierung der Schutzschwelle eine Erweiterung des Anwendungsbereichs des Urheberrechts fur Designleistungen bedeutet. Die Autorin nahert sich der inhaltlichen Konkretisierung des Kriteriums der kunstlerischen Leistung insbesondere anhand einer Auseinandersetzung mit der Design- und Kunstwissenschaft an. Sie gelangt zu dem Ergebnis, dass der BGH durch die Beibehaltung des Erfordernisses der kunstlerischen Leistung allenfalls eine minimale Erweiterung des Anwendungsbereichs bewirkte. Die neue Schutzschwelle steht in Einklang mit den unionsrechtlichen Vorgaben.
