Provides legal reform proposals for the readers/lawmakers to rethink current copyright laws
Includes copyright laws, current copyright revisions and influential cases in China, which helps the readers to get familiar with legal development in China
Addresses many timely issues, such as US SOPA/PIPA legislations, the recent internet-related cases in Australia and the United States and the graduated response systems
Adopted comparative research that helps the readers to be informed of legal development around the world
Based on comparative research concerning both international conventions and laws, regulations, policies and cases from different jurisdictions, this book puts forward proposals for recovering the balance of interests between copyright holders, technological intermediaries and public users with regard to the access to, distribution and exploitation of copyright works. Four specific issues are discussed in detail:
· an anti-circumvention rule for protection of technological measures that control access to copyright material;
· indirect infringing liability for internet service providers and safe harbor regulations, which influence the dissemination of copyright works;
· copyright limitations and exceptions especially under the digital network environment, which are relevant to the extent that users are allowed to exploit copyright works;
· digital commons projects that promote the distribution and adaptation of copyright works placed under voluntary license schemes, which are relevant to the tolerance and encouragement of remix culture.
