This chapter examines copyright issues arising from copying and distributing information on the internet. The discussion focuses on how the internet has challenged the application and development of copyright law, considering web-copyright concerns such as linking, caching, and aggregating, citing Google Inc. v Copiepresse SCRL. It spends considerable time discussing the operation of the temporary reproduction right through key cases Infopaq International and Public Relations Consultants Association v Newspaper Licensing Agency. The analysis then moves on to examine the communication to the public right created by the Copyright and Related Rights in the Information Society Directive examining the application of the right through key cases such as Nils Svensson v Retriever Sverige, Stichting Brein v Ziggo BV, VG Bild-Kunst v Stiftung and Tunein Inc. v Warner Music. It concludes with a discussion of the newly enacted Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive.
