Seminar Series: Intellectual Property
In addition to giving copyright holders the right to prohibit reproductions, transmissions and performances of the protected works, European copyright law now regulates issues such as linking to content in the internet, blocking internet sites and providing open WiFi networks, among others. The Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) has addressed these and other important questions related to copyright and fundamental rights in its recent case law. Professor Mylly will discuss this significant development and how the CJEU has used fundamental rights in its judgments, in particular.
Professor Tuomas Mylly’s research analyses informational and communicative power from the perspective of intellectual property, fundamental rights and competition law. His current research addresses the copyright case law of the CJEU from a fundamental rights perspective. He is the principal investigator in a research project funded by the Academy of Finland, Constitutional Hedges of Intellectual Property. He is currently a Visiting Fellow at Mansfield College. He is attached to the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre and Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at Oxford. More information, links to his publications and research projects can be found from his profile page at the University of Turku.
