Minister of justice zypries introduces draft new copyright novel
On thursday, federal minister of justice brigitte cypries introduced the cornerstones of the new draft official law law. Again, it became clear that there is no master plan for the knowledge regulations of the digital society. At the first basket, it won, there was no design, as only the mandatory requirements of the EU copyright directive should be implemented (code of code … And all questions open). In the second basket, the points were placed, which needed another discussion.
What was introduced, testifies to a lot of pragmatics and some arms, but of little active design will. In copyright contract law, the federal government had been behind the weaker, protection-exercised party, the authors, to secure a reasonable share from the exploitation of their works. A comparable start to the burgers whose interests are as threatened and protected, has not been given here. The design, as far as he has known, has left central questions open, chosen for other procedural solutions and left the market free hand for the grovers of the copyright scope.
