Written by a team of expert practitioners led by Jeremy Phillips of Olswang Copyright in the UK and European Community is a practical and forward thinking treatment of current and future copyright issues in the UK and Europe.

Appealing to IP Practitioners and more specifically copyright practitioners, this work offers a practical and real-life treatise of how to approach day-to-day situations faced by practitioners as well as engaging readers with the subject.

The increase in globalisation and the nature of current business practice means that it is no longer enough to consider merely UK law, it is essential to consider the European angle and the decisions of the ECJ. This book incorporates and treats thoroughly case law from the ECJ to inform the Practitioner and his practice.

Copyright in the UK and European Community addresses technology media tools such as YouTube, Facebook, wikis, blogs, Twitter and other internet functions, looking at the effect advances in technology have had in the treatment of copyright and how this affects the practitioner and his client.
