KOUBARELI AND TIGEST NOW IN ENGLISH

The July 2003 issue of the European Copyright and Design Reports has belatedly emerged from Sweet & Maxwell. It contains, among other things, English translations of two good cases. The first is Koubareli v Volotas and Forthnet, an Athens Court of First Instance decision on the cyber-harassment of a young Greek authoress by an admirer whose activities were held to infringe not only her economic and her moral copyright but also her right of personality. The second, from the Cour d’appel de Paris, is Société Reed Expositions France v Société Tigest, in which the court ruled that contractual restrictions on what the purchaser of commercial data ― in this case a database of contact and other details of exhibitors at the claimant’s exhibitions ― could do with the data did not constitute a violation of the defendant’s freedom of speech.
