Chapter 4: COPYRIGHT AND RELATED RIGHTS
The extent of international and EU harmonization in the field of copyright and related rights and its significance for conflict of laws are discussed. The application of the EU jurisdictions rules to copyright infringement claims concerning Internet activities is analysed in the light of the most recent case law of the Court of Justice of the EU. The debate about mere accessibility of content as a potential connecting factor and the extent of jurisdiction granted over diffuse copyright infringements are the focus of particular attention. This chapter further addresses the choice of law issues posed by copyright protection in the online context, including its implications on the liability of platforms and other Internet intermediaries. Digital Single Market initiatives receive particular attention.
