In recent years the intellectual property protection afforded to works of art has received increased attention from artists, museums, galleries, auction houses, publishers and their professional staff and legal advisers, as well as from those teaching or studying copyright and/or the law of cultural property. This was the first text to examine in detail the intellectual property rights protecting artistic works and artists' rights generally in the United Kingdom. First published in 2001, Art and Copyright has established itself as a leading text in the field. Now revised and updated, the second edition includes expanded coverage of Artist's Resale Right and the relationship between designs law and artistic works, as well as greater coverage of new media and art, and digital developments generally. It also includes additional precedent materials and checklists. It remains an invaluable work for all those involved in art law and for intellectual property lawyers involved with the exploitation and/or sale of artistic works, as well as for intellectual property academics, researchers, law students, curators, publishers, artists, gallery owners and all those interested in how the law protects artistic works.

English summary: Violations of honor and other personal rights are typical Internet offences. Which national law applies to invasions of personal privacy on the Internet? Michael von Hinden examines the conflict of laws problem on the basis of the German International Law of Torts, which was revised recently. He shows that it is possible on the Internet as well to separate those connecting factors which are relevant from a conflict of laws perspective from an ostensible and mainly technical internationality. He also explains the limits to what each country can do on its own and pleads for the unification of the International Law of Torts, at least on a regional basis. German description: Verletzungen der Ehre und anderer Personlichkeitsguter gelten als typische Delikte im Internet. In einem besonders sensiblen Spannungsfeld grundrechtlich geschutzter Interessen verlauft die sachrechtliche Grenze zwischen erlaubtem und haftungsrechtlich sanktioniertem Handeln in den einzelnen Rechtsordnungen allerdings sehr uneinheitlich. Im Konfliktfall erlangt daher die kollisionsrechtliche Frage nach dem anwendbaren Recht besondere Bedeutung, die sich bei einer Verbreitung von Informationen im globalen 'Netz der Netze' regelmassig stellt. Die Anknupfungsmomente des Internationalen Privatrechts tun sich freilich schwer in einem technischen Umfeld, dessen Zweck gerade in der Uberwindung territorialer Massstabe besteht. Wo liegt der Tatort des Delikts, wenn die eingespeisten Ausserungen global zuganglich sind? Fuhrt die technische Omniprasenz zur Anwendbarkeit samtlicher nationaler Rechtsordnungen? Oder ist die verweisungsrechtliche Methode zur Losung derartiger Rechtskollisionen schlicht ungeeignet?Michael von Hinden untersucht die kollisionsrechtliche Fragestellung auf der Grundlage des kurzlich neu geregelten deutschen Internationalen Deliktsrechts. Er zeigt, dass es auch im Internet gelingen kann, kollisionsrechtlich relevante Verbindungen von einer nur scheinbaren, eher technischen Internationalitat zu trennen. Er verdeutlicht aber auch die Grenzen nationaler Regelungen und pladiert fur eine zumindest regionale Vereinheitlichung des Internationalen Deliktsrechts. Rechtsvergleichende Bezuge sowie eine Analyse alternativer Losungsansatze runden seine Untersuchung ab.

English summary: Cross-border consumer contracts are becoming more common in the era of the Internet. The question of what court decides and what law applies is of special importance for consumers who are generally less experienced in international contracts and have less bargaining power. Niklas Ganssauge shows that under European law a consumer can rely on his home jurisdiction whereas under American law he is usually subject to unfavorable forum selection clauses. Similarly, the European consumer is generally protected by special conflict of law rules whereas only very few such rules exist in American law. German description: Das Internet ermoglicht und vereinfacht den Abschluss grenzuberschreitender Vertrage. Kommt es jedoch zu einem Rechtsstreit zwischen den Parteien, fragt sich zunachst, welches Gericht international zustandig und welches Recht anwendbar ist. Dies ist fur Verbraucher von besonderer Bedeutung, da sie mit internationalen Vertragen meist unerfahren sind und gegenuber dem Anbieter eine schwache Verhandlungsposition haben. Niklas Ganssauge untersucht diese Fragen aus der Perspektive des deutschen, europaischen und US-amerikanischen Rechts. Er kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass sich der Verbraucher nach europaischem Recht regelmassig auf seinen Wohnsitzgerichtsstand berufen kann. Das US-amerikanische Recht ist dagegen weitaus weniger kundenfreundlich, da regelmassig eine auch in Verbrauchervertragen zulassige Gerichtsstands- oder Schiedsvereinbarung geschlossen wird. Hinsichtlich des anwendbaren Rechts zeigt sich, dass sich der deutsche oder europaische Verbraucher, der im Internet einen Vertrag schliesst, grundsatzlich auf die verbraucherschutzenden Vorschriften seines Aufenthaltsstaates berufen kann. Dagegen besteht in den USA ein kollisionsrechtlicher Verbraucherschutz nur in wenigen Randbereichen.
