In this timely book, copyright scholar Péter Mezei offers a comprehensive examination of copyright exhaustion, including its historical development, theoretical framework, practical application, and policy considerations. He compares the substantive norms and case law for the first-sale doctrine in the United States and in the European Union, covering both analogue and digital applications in detail, and in doing so questions the common rejection of exhaustion in the resale of digital subject matter such as computer programs, sound recordings, audiovisual works, and e-books. Instead, he proposes a digital first-sale doctrine that would offer legal consistency to copyright law and a technologically feasible framework for content producers and consumers. This book should be read by anyone interested in how copyright law continues to evolve in conjunction with the digital world.

Cet ouvrage analyse de manière synthétique et accessible les sources, principes et mécanismes de mise en oeuvre de la protection européenne et internationale de la propriété intellectuelle (droit d’auteur, droits voisins, brevets, dessins et modèles, marques, indications géographiques). Il s’articule autour d’une présentation des grandes questions que le juriste doit aborder en présence d’un droit de propriété intellectuelle susceptible d’être revendiqué dans un contexte global. L’analyse est étayée par des extraits de textes et de jurisprudences. Elle est complétée par le traitement de situations permettant d’expliciter la mise en oeuvre du droit européen et international de la propriété intellectuelle dans différents environnements juridiques de niveau national, régional ou international.

The Competence of the European Union in Copyright Lawmaking

This book inquires into the competence of the EU to legislate in the field of copyright, and uses content analysis techniques to demonstrate the existence of a normative gap in copyright lawmaking. To address that gap, it proposes the creation of benchmarks of legislative activity, reasoning that EU secondary legislation, such as directives and regulations, should be based on higher sources of law. It investigates two such possible sources: the activity of the EU Court of Justice in the pre-legislative era and the EU treaties. From these sources, the author establishes concrete benchmarks of legislative activity, which she then tests by applying them to current EU copyright legislation. This provides examples of good and bad practices in copyright lawmaking and also shows how the benchmarks could be implemented in copyright legislation. Finally, the author offers some recommendations in this regard.
