This book offers a clear introductory path to approach the complex and changing area of digital copyright law. It encapsulates the legislation and jurisprudence associated to contemporary, controversial and ubiquitous (or soon to be ubiquitous) technological trends - Peer-to- Peer, linking and search engines, and digital libraries - also probing the digital rights management field - which emerged as a potential solution to most of the problems raised by digital technology. The methodology followed entails an investigation of the technology at stake, an analysis of the relevant legal provisions and a review of the most significant judicial responses, aiming to present, in an integrated manner, the law and technology intrinsic to those trends. The approach is international in scope. The premise is that the challenges invoked by those technologies and the ensuing legal and judicial responses thereto, have shaped (and are continuing to shape) the law of copyright and the Internet. Included are boxes with key legal provisions, summaries of cases, concepts and technological terms.
