European Community Directive 2001/29/EC on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society ("the Directive") entered into force on 22 June 2001. Article 13 requires the Directive to be transposed into the national laws of EU Member States before 22 December 2002. The Directive harmonises rights in certain key areas, primarily to meet the challenge of the Internet and e-commerce, and digital technology in general. It also deals with exceptions to these rights and legal protection for technological aspects of rights management systems. This consultation concerns the precise way that UK law in this area should be amended in order to comply with the Directive.
Matthew Rimmer writes that the Supreme Court of the United States has rejected a constitutional challenge to the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act 1998 (U.S.) by a majority of seven to two. This paper evaluates the litigation in terms of policy debate in a number of discourses history, intellectual property law, constitutional law and freedom of speech, cultural heritage, economics and competition policy, and international trade. It argues that the extension of the copyright term will inhibit the dissemination of cultural works through the use of new technologies such as Eric Eldred's Eldritch Press and Project Gutenberg. It concludes that there is a need to resist the attempts of copyright owners to establish the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act 1998 (U.S.) as an international model for other jurisdictions such as Australia.
