What the Law Says

In-depth Literature on Copyright

The book presents Danish copyright law to give both an overview and detailed, specialised knowledge:

  • Presentation of the background for copyright, collective management organizations and international regulations within the field, including EU directives
  • Comments on all the paragraphs in the Danish Copyright Act with comprehensive references to literature and case law. This constitutes the main part of the book.
  • Judgment register and a comprehensive keyword register

The book systematically reviews the EU directives within the field of copyright. The individual provisions in the directives are connected to references to the Danish implementation, summaries of judgments from the European Court of Justice regarding the provisions as well as references to relevant preamble considerations, and when necessary, in-depth comments on the provision are featured. 

The book contains an overall presentation of the Danish regulations concerning intellectual property rights. Among other things, the book covers the following topics:

  • Intellectual property law as a legal discipline, including the societal justification for intellectual property law, its historical development and the most important international collaborations within this field
  • Copyright and related rights
  • Patent law
  • Design law
  • Utility model law
  • Agreements on intellectual property rights
  • Law enforcement of intellectual property rights

The book explains the provisions of the UK Copyright Act and supporting legislation in quick and easy question-and-answer form.

This volume takes the form of an article-by-article commentary on the relevant European directives and international treaties in the field of copyright and neighbouring rights.
