The November 2003 issue of Sweet & Maxwell's European Copyright and Design Reports is now out. Foreign judgments available for the first time in English include the following:

* Noir d'Ivoire v Home Boutiques (Court of Appeal, Brussels, Belgium): is a collection of colours in a painter's palette protectable as a database?

* Maria Isabel R v Vipriga SA (Court of Appeal, La Coruna, Spain): does post-employment exploitation of an employee author's work constitute an infringement of copyright?

*Pop Group A and EROC II (Bundesgerichtshof, Germany): does a licence of the right to record performances in 1970s permit the making of subsequent recordings in CD format?

*SABAM v SA Schleiper (Brussels Civil Court, Belgium): does a further reproduction of licensed reproductions of art works in miniaturised form for advertising purposes infringe the copyright?
