There are 28 EU Member States – and 28 different
national copyright regimes in the EU. But the European Union has tried to set a
common ground: so-called directives have harmonized the national laws in many
aspects, but some have been left out. This presentation will decipher the EU
copyright system, the existing directives including recent changes and the
latest case law of the European Court of Justice. The newest developments with
respect to the term of protection, protection for US works in the EU (even if
they are in the public domain in the US), and exhaustion of rights in
connection with licensing will be explained.

Prof. Dr. Axel Nordemann is
a partner with BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT-Berlin, having studied law at the Universities
of Göttingen and Munich, and completing his doctoral thesis on the law of
copyright in photography. He is the author and co-editor of numerous
publications in the field of copyright law, including “Fromm/Nordemann:
Copyright Law” (2013), numerous chapters in “Loewenheim: Handbook of
Copyright Law” (2009), and together with Dr. Czychowski, he wrote the
chapter on national and international copyright law in “Hasselblatt:
Munich Attorneys’ Handbook on Intellectual Property” (2012).
