A leading text in its field, Copinger & Skone James on Copyright offers thorough and comprehensive coverage of the main aspects of copyright and connected rights.

This 17th edition has been extensively rewritten to take account of the increasing significance of International and European law in this field. Volume 1 contains commentary and analysis with Volume 2 featuring legislation and materials.

The title takes a subject by subject approach to take you through Copyright, Rights in Performances, Rights in Designs, Moral Rights and a variety of Miscellaneous Rights.

The second supplement covers the following updates:

  • Chapter 3 (Requirements for Copyright Protection) covers the effects of the Levola Hengelo decision of the CJEU; the Dacom reference on preparatory design material for computer programs; the decision in Banner v Endemol on game show formats; the Cofemel reference on works of applied art; and the statements about originality in Martin v Kogan.
  • Chapter 6 (Duration and Abandonment of Copyright) includes a reworking of the treatment of the duration of copyright in sound recordings.
  • Chapter 7 (The Rights of a Copyright Owner: Primary Infringement) considers the significance of the CJEU decisions in Syed on the ever-expanding scope of the distribution right and Renckhoff in relation to communications to the public by posting photographs on a website.
  • Chapter 9 (Permitted Acts) covers the substantially revised disability exception and a variety of German CJEU references on the exceptions in the Information Society Directive.
  • Chapter 12 (Rights in Performances) features a reworking of the treatment of the duration of protection for performances.
  • Chapter 13 (Designs) includes the latest guidance from the CJEU (Easy Sanitary Solutions) and the High Court (L’Oreal v RN and Cantel Medical) in relation to Community designs and the test of individual character in particular. It also analyses important CJEU decisions in relation to the protection of component or spare parts (Acacia) as well as the exclusion of protection for designs dictated by technical function (Doceram). Also covered is the IPEC decision in Poul Chang in relation to stays and international jurisdiction.
  • Chapter 21 (Civil Remedies) deals with the ever-increasing tide of case law on interim and final injunctions and the Supreme Court’s decision in Cartier on the incidence of costs associated with blocking orders.
  • Chapter 28 (Control of the Exercise of Copyrights and Related Rights) covers BBC v Sky on the extra-territorial jurisdiction of the Copyright Tribunal and the CJEU’s decisions in Intel and Coty.
