Abstract

"This publication provides a view beyond the big European ­collective management organisations (CMOs) and contributes to the transparency of the collective rights management ­systems of young and prospective EU-Member States. Since the accession of Slovenia and Bulgaria, the territory of EU expands over the region of South-Eastern Europe (SEE). ­Nevertheless, the EU academic circles are generally unfamiliar with the field of collective management of copyright and related rights in SEE. However, in the last twenty years, a diverse and to an extent rather specific landscape of CMOs has been ­developed in that region. The legal framework and the ­particularities of the latter are worthy of scientific consideration.This book also deals with the position of those CMOs from the region with regard to the increasingly strong requirement for cross-border licensing in the online field and the tendency for more competition between CMOs."

Abstract

Over the course of the past decades, photography has become one of the most popular fields of art. This development is also reflected in recent prices for some works of contemporary photography, which fetch up to several million dollars. Such price levels would be unheard of if artists were to take advantage of the opportunity to produce as many prints from the same negative as possible. On the contrary, the prevailing practice in contemporary photography is that of printing photographs in “limited editions”, with some of the most expensive photographs only existing in the low single digits. This study researches the legal implications of artists communicating limited editions to the purchasers of their art with the main question being whether such “promises of exclusivity” are legally binding and thus could be enforced by collectors e. g. in court proceedings.

Abstract

Interestingly enough, food, being central to every human being, has been excluded from pat-entability in many patent laws. The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs) now forces all Members of the World Trade Organization to abolish the exemption. For this reason, this study looks at the Patent Acts of Germany, Brazil, China, and India in a comparative law approach with respect to the exemption to patentability of food-related inventions and the effects of its abolition. Secondly, it describes the food sector of today and particularly its technological developments. Finally, the intellectual property situation of the food sector is analyzed.

Abstract

Do patents rules prevent countries from acquiring affordable medicines? A number of legal experts and governments have felt that the WTO, in particular the TRIPS Agreement, forces countries to favour patents over public health. The WTO sought to settle this dispute by concluding the Public Health Declaration. This book closely analyses the legal situation within the WTO prior to the Declaration and the consequences that resulted from it. It discusses the value of the changes, nationally and internationally, and the extent to which it makes the access to medicines more affordable. This review addresses not only the mere assessment of the positions of pro-patent countries but also takes a look at the obligations that developing countries have internationally and to their citizens. The analysis in this book is a comprehensive aid to lawyers as it explains the scope and purpose of the TRIPS Agreement provisions. It assists politicians and lobbyists by demystifying the treaty texts and by indicating the boundaries of lawful governmental action. Public Health representatives will be able to use this book to implement health care measures in a lawful way, both nationally and internationally.

Abstract

In patent communities several patentees cooperate contractually to licence the respective patented technologies to third parties. In consideration of the rising relevance of this business practice, this book discusses crucial courses and strategic considerations, which are the basis for the establishment of patent communities, both in legal and empirical regard, in order to identify the optimal conditions for successful conversion in a competitive surrounding. Thus the best conditions for the promotion of innovation are to be created.

Abstract

Defining the true meaning of the acronym FRAND reminds of the parable of two political parties arguing before the elections: who is right and who is wrong, although they both know that there is no such thing as one truth and most utterly it depends on the individual perspective. Given the very substantial legal and business concerns involved within the telecommunication standardization environment, the conflicts what FRAND terms and conditions means seem to be unavoidable.
