Transatlantic Copyright Comparisons: Making Available via Hyperlinks in the European Union and Canada

Article by Mira Burri and Jeremy de Beer.

Abstract
This paper provides a timely comparative analysis of recent Canadian and European Union (EU) copyright cases regarding the nature and scope of communication rights, as applied to the issue of copyright liability for hyperlinking. It links these evolving practices with the pertinent international law, in particular with the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT), together known as the WIPO Internet Treaties.
