This morning Advocate General Antonio Tizzano gave his Opinion in Case C-192/04 Lagardère Active Broadcast v Société pour la perception de la rémunération équitable (SPRE), Gesellschaft zur Verwertung von Leistungsschutzrechten mbH.

Lagardère: a company not afraid to take on the pirates ...

The Opinion is so far available only in Italian, Lithuanian, Swedish, Spanish, Finnish, German and Portuguese. If it comes up in English or any of our readers can help, we'll be able to tell you what this case is all about.

Clue: it looks like something to do with copyright, Directive 92/100 and "emissioni radiofoniche in più Stati membri".

STOP PRESS: Wednesday afternoon, 1528pm: the French translation has now been posted on the ECJ website.

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.
