The first part of the module will be dedicated to the understanding of the EU IP system.
The Treaty of Rome did not transfer competences between the Member States and the EU with regard to Intellectual Property (IP). However, the EU exercised them through harmonisation of trademarks, patents and designs laws, and thereafter by way of unification of those laws with the creation of Community/unitary industrial property rights. The competences granted to the EU of IP has not brought an end to the coexistence of Community rights and national rights.
The second part focuses on the new IP legislation on “copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market” that governs digital and IT proprietary rights, which provides for rules to adapt certain exceptions and limitations to copyright and related rights to digital and cross-border environments. Specifically, the module will cover aspects of the new legislation that
- establishes measures to facilitate certain licensing practices and the dissemination of out-of-commerce works and other subject matter, particularly, the online availability of audiovisual works on video-on-demand platforms.
- regulates the use of content in the public domain
- regulates the rights in publications, the use of works or other subject matter by online service providers storing and access to user-uploaded content
