Chapter 10: Ebooks and mass digitization projects: the role of licensing

Eleonora Rosati


Licensing of content in digital format has been subject to attempts at policy and legislative intervention, as well as judicial developments. While the former have translated to initiatives with, arguably, a modest breadth until very recently, the latter have contributed to shaping the scope of control over content in digital format and clarifying the prerogatives of authors in this context. This chapter reviews relevant developments at the EU level prior to the adoption of Directive 2019/790, discusses issues of consent and control and maps the various forces contributing to the evolution and – possibly – transformation of these concepts in the digital sphere.
