'Reproduction' and 'Communication to the Public' Rights in EU Copyright Law: FAPL v QC Leisure

Publisher: Hart Publishing
Abstract:This analysis considers the controversial opinion of the Advocate General in FAPL v QC Leisure delivered in February 2011, in particular the views expressed about the scope of the rights of reproduction and communication to the public contained within the Information Society Directive. It argues that the ECJ, when it comes to issuing its ruling later this year (most likely in Autumn), should not interpret the reproduction right in an overly broad fashion and that the right of communication to the public should not be interpreted to include reception in public, as defined in Article 11bis(1)(iii) of the Berne Convention.
