Computer programs are literary works, and as such they are protected under the German Copyright Act, § 69a. From this copyright protection it follows that both the use of computer programs and the transfer of use rights require permission. This paper aims to analyze the possibilities of a transfer of use rights from a licensee of a computer program to a third party.

Computerprogramme im Sinne des § 69a UrhG sind urheberrechtlich geschützte Sprachwerke. Daher bedarf nicht nur die Benutzung von Computerprogrammen der Erlaubnis, sondern auch deren Weitergabe muss gestattet sein. In diesem Beitrag werden die Möglichkeiten der Übertragung von Nutzungsrechten an Computerprogrammen durch einen Lizenznehmer an einen Dritten untersucht. Dabei erfolgt keine erschöpfende Darstellung und Entscheidung sämtlicher Erwägungen und Streitfragen, sondern vielmehr eine grundlegende Analyse ausgewählter Aspekte der geltenden Rechtslage.

More about this publication?
  • The Intellectual Property Journal (IPJ) will be a research-oriented journal dedicated to patents, copyright, trade marks and related areas of law. It will provide a forum for articles which analyze fundamental issues of intellectual property law, including its historical, philosophical, methodological and in particular economic foundations. Since intellectual property law has been influenced by European Community law to a greater extent than other areas of private law, the journal will also aim at contributing to the development of a genuinely European doctrine. Articles and reviews will be published in either German or English; all articles written in the German language will be supplemented by an English summary.
