Information Law Series Volume 39

The European Harmonisation of Intermediary Accessory Liability in Copyright provides a clarification on the substantive rules of European intermediary accessory liability in copyright and formulates harmonised European norms to govern this complicated topic. In step with the rapid progress to the centre of modern social, political, and economic life, the internet has proven a convenient vehicle for the commission of unprecedented levels of copyright infringement. Given the formidable practical obstacles to the successful pursuit of actual perpetrators, it has become common for intermediaries - providers of internet-related infrastructure and services - to face liability as accessories. Despite advances in policy at the European level, the law in this area remains far from consistently applicable. This is the first book to take a law-based approach towards exploring a possible introduction of a substantive European intermediary liability.

What's in this book:

With a detailed comparative analysis of relevant regimes in three major Member State jurisdictions - England, France, and Germany - the author elucidates the relationship between these rules and the demands of EU law on fundamental rights and the principles of European tort law. On this basis, she clearly presents the interrelations between such areas as the following:

  • accessory liability in tort;
  • joint tortfeasance;
  • European fault-based liability: fault, causation, defences;
  • negligence;
  • negligence balancing: rights-based or utility-based;
  • Germany's 'disturbance liability' (Storerhaftung);
  • fair balance in human rights;
  • end-users' fundamental rights;
  • the European Commission's 2015 Communication on a Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe;
  • the E-Commerce Directive and other relevant provisions;
  • safe harbours: mere conduit, caching, hosting;
  • intermediary actions: monitoring, filtering, blocking, removal of infringing content; and
  • application of remedies: damages and injunctions.

The strong points of each national system are highlighted, as are the commonalities between them, and the author uses these to build a proposed harmonised European framework for intermediary liability for copyright infringement. The author concludes with suggestions for the future possible integration of the proposed framework into EU law.

How this will help you:

This book discusses the issue of the liability of internet intermediaries for third-party copyright infringement that has entered into the political agenda across the globe, giving rise to one of the most complex, contentious, and fascinating debates in modern copyright law. This book offers an opportunity for a re-conceptualisation and rationalisation of the applicable law, in a way which better accounts for the cross-border nature of the internet. The proposed reintegration of intermediary accessory copyright liability into underlying national tort norms, common principles of European tort law, and the European law of fundamental rights will prove to be of inestimable value to many interested parties - lawyers, internet intermediaries, NGOs, policymakers, universities, libraries, researchers, lobbyists - in matters regarding the information society.

Take Maximum Advantage of Wireless Technology and Exploit Potential Advances
With the rapid evolution of multimedia communications, engineers and other professionals are generally forced to hoard a plethora of different texts and journals to maintain a solid grasp on essential ideas and techniques in the field. Wireless Multimedia Communications provides researchers and students with a primary reference to help readers take maximum advantage of current systems and uncover opportunities to propose new and novel protocols, applications, and services.

Extract the Essentials of System Design, Analysis, Implementation
A complete technical reference, the text condenses the essential topics of core wireless multimedia communication technologies, convergence, QoS, and security that apply to everything from networking to communications systems, signal processing, and security. From extensive existing literature, the authors distill the central tenets and primary methods of analysis, design, and implementation, to reflect the latest technologies and architectural concepts. The book addresses emerging challenges to inform the system standardization process and help engineers combat the high error rates and stringent delay constraints that remain a significant challenge to various applications and services.

Keep Pace with Detailed Techniques to Optimize Technology
The authors identify causes of information loss in point-to-point signal transmission through wireless channels, and then they discuss techniques to minimize that loss. They use examples that illustrate the differences in implementing various systems, ranging from cellular voice telephony to wireless Internet access. Each chapter has been carefully organized with the latest information to serve dual purposes as an easy-to-reference guide for professionals and as a principal text for senior-level university students.


Media Coverage And Political Terrorists

This book studies what has generally been regarded as intangible: the relationship between news media coverage and terrorist success. Utilizing his four-year database of barricade-and-hostage and hijacking atrocities by international terrorists and the coverage afforded those events by newspapers from three Western nations (Germany, Great Britain, and the United States), Richard W. Schaffert observes the effect of media coverage (newspaper column space provided, articles and photographs published) on whether concessions were made to terrorist demands, and establishes a strong positive relationship between coverage and terrorist success. In Chapter 1, Schaffert establishes a definition of political terrorism by identifying the basic elements that distinguish it from other forms of political violence, then rigorously applies this definition throughout his analysis. The functions of political terrorism are reviewed, with special consideration given to the use of terrorism as an instrument of politics. Schaffert evaluates state experiences with political terrorism in terms of the nature of the threat, countermeasures employed, the media's role, and the relationship between public, press, and government. Finally, the question of the responsibility of a democratic society's media in the reporting of terrorism is considered. Schaffert's extensive database, which is included as an appendix, will prove invaluable for further research in the area.
