This authoritative new reference work presents comprehensive article-by-article commentary on each of the EU Directives in the field of copyright, as well as analysis of the underlying basic concepts and principles such as free movement and non-discrimination.

Published as part of the new Elgar Commentaries series, this unique book describes and analyses each EU directive in turn, taking into account all recent legislative amendments and pending initiatives in the context of the EU Digital Agenda, as well as the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

With a clear structure allowing readers to navigate quickly to a specific point, the book not only sets out the law, but boldly discusses challenges for the future that will underpin copyright in the years to come. It also presents ongoing discussions in WIPO and assesses the role of copyright in society and economy both from an EU and an international perspective.

EU Copyright Law is a seminal commentary work from a team of leading experts in the field combining aspects of theory and practice and placing copyright in perspective. It will be an indispensable reference tool for academics, researchers, practitioners and policymakers in copyright law and comparative law.
