DATABASE QUERY


An IPKat reader wishes to know, have there been any cases which have interpreted the notion of the "author's own intellectual creation" under the protection of databases through standard copyright (rather than the sui generis database right)? How does this differ from the traditional 'sweat of the brow' concept in UK copyright?

The IPKat would be grateful if you would send your bright ideas to him and he will forward them to the questioner.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
