In 1709 (or was it 1710?) the Statute of Anne created the first purpose-built copyright law. This blog, founded just 300 short and unextended years later, is dedicated to all things copyright, warts and all.

Private copying of infringing works: questions for the CJEU
Professor Tobias Cohen Jehoram (De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V.) has kindly sent a copy of the judgment in full, in Dutch, which you can read here. From this short note, which this blogger has run through Google Translate, it appears that the nub of the underlying case is the method of calculating private copying compensation in respect of blank disks. Tobias has promised an English note in due course. We look forward to it.
