SOME RECENT EUROPEAN COPYRIGHT CASES

The January 2004 issue of the Sweet & Maxwell law series The European Copyright and Design Reports (ECDR) has now been published. It contains, among other cases, the following decisions which are available for the first time in English:

* Gabriele Guercio and Umberto Allemandi (Court of Turin, Italy): reproduction for “criticism, discussion or teaching”, without the consent of the author -- is this a criminal infringement of copyright?

* Teosto v A Taxi Driver (Supreme Court, Finland): whether music played on a car radio/CD player by a taxi driver was a “performance in public”.

* Mesam’s application (Turkish Court of Cassation): calculation of damages in respect of infringement claim brought by collecting society.

The ECDR is also avaiable to subscribers of Westlaw’s Westlaw.UK and Westlaw.IP services.
