Intellectual Property at the Crossroads of Trade

Intellectual Property at the Crossroads of Trade

ATRIP Intellectual Property series

Edited by Jan Rosén

The book comprises thoughtful contributions on varying commercial aspects of IP, from parallel imports of pharmaceuticals to exhaustion of rights, and from trade in goods of cultural heritage to regulation of goods in transit. There is detailed discussion of licensing, including cross-border elements, online licensing, and the potential for harmonisation in Europe. This precedes a multi-layered analysis of the Anti-counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

Giuseppe Mazziotti

Subjects: law - academic, intellectual property law

Extract

Boosting the music business in the internet age has proven to be a tough proposition. Online copyright infringement still has the edge over legitimate music. Moreover, the music industry has faced dramatic losses in the offline markets that have not been offset by the increase in revenues from the online music sector. In Europe the situation is more complex than that in the US since the European Union (EU) does not have a single copyright system and the enforcement and management of exclusive rights in musical compositions, music performances and sound recordings still takes place mostly on a country-by-country basis, despite the international reach of the internet.
