Intellectual Property and New Technologies in the European Union

Objective



The proposed research basically intends:
a) A generic study of the holder's basic rights regarding intellectual property within the different European Union regulations (economic and moral rights), together with the limits to these rights (with special emphasis on the concepts of copy and diffusion). For this purpose, the rules, which regulate with a general disposition the intellectual property (state laws, International Broads and Agreements of which the member states of the European Union belong to) will be fixed.

b) A study of the specific protection which the law regulations of the member states provide to the intellectual property when the aggression tool is a means of telecommunication.

c) A specific study of the protection of intellectual property in internet (fixing of the current legal status, especially the Broad projects on this issue)

d) Fixation and comparative analysis of the intellectual property protection levels against telecommunication media (especially with regard to internet) in each of the member states of the European Union.

Training content (objective, benefit and expected impact)

The study intends to establish the existence of differentiated levels of protection to the intellectual property in the states of the European Union, and if this is so, to propose a solution. With regard to the relevance within the Europe a Union context, it is more than evident since there is no doubt that differentiated protection levels will necessarily affect the circulation of services and goods among the member states of the European Union.
