Contents Copyright Law Changes and Developments in Digital Network Era -- Balance of Interest in Copyright Systems and Imbalances under Digital Network Environment -- Toward A More Balanced Model: Revision of Anti-circumvention Rules -- Establishing Certainty about Liability for Internet Service Providers and Safe Harbor Regulations -- Reconstruction of Copyright Limitations and Exceptions in Digital Network Age: Importation of Legal Flexibility and Certainty -- Construction of Digital Commons and Exploration of Public Domain
Summary Based on comparative research concerning both international conventions and laws, regulations, policies and cases from different jurisdictions, this book puts forward proposals for recovering the balance of interests between copyright holders, technological intermediaries and public users with regard to the access to, distribution and exploitation of copyright works. Four specific issues are discussed in detail: · an anti-circumvention rule for protection of technological measures that control access to copyright material; · indirect infringing liability for internet service providers and safe harbor regulations, which influence the dissemination of copyright works; · copyright limitations and exceptions especially under the digital network environment, which are relevant to the extent that users are allowed to exploit copyright works; · digital commons projects that promote the distribution and adaptation of copyright works placed under voluntary license schemes, which are relevant to the tolerance and encouragement of remix culture
