Abstract

This chapter considers the nature and scope of the rights conferred by copyright and related rights under European law. The starting point for this discussion are domestic conceptions of copyright and related rights as conferring a range of economic and moral rights on authors and related rights holders to authorize or prohibit certain acts in relation to the protected work or subject matter within the territory of the protecting state, subject to the availability of a limitation or exception. With this as background, the chapter considers the precise nature and scope of the rights conferred by copyright and related rights as a matter of European law, and such aspects of those rights as remain untouched by European law.
