ROCK OF AGES MEETS THE INFORMATION SOCIETY


After being pursued by the Commission and then savaged by the European Court of Justice for failing to implement the Directive on Copyright and the Information Society in Gibraltar, Her Majesty's Britannic Government has done the honourable thing. A piece of suitably subordinate legislation, the Copyright (Gibraltar) Order 2005 (2005 No.853) was made on 22 March and came into force on that very same day.
