Lexology Getting the Deal Through – Copyright 2019 (Switzerland)
Copyright addresses the key issues that are of concern to rights holders and their counsel when navigating copyright law in unfamiliar jurisdictions, covering such areas as: legislation and enforcement, agencies, subject matter and scope of copyright, copyright formalities, ownership and copyright, duration of copyright, copyright infringements and remedies and relationship to international copyright conventions.
Copyright law around the world continues to evolve to address advances in technology and adoption of new communications media. Judicial decisions, national legislation in various countries, and international treaties all reflect efforts to strike the appropriate balance between encouraging creativity by providing meaningful protection of intellectual property rights and encouraging continued growth and development of new technologies.
The chapter on copyright for Switzerland was written by Dr Dirk Spacek. Please find below the complete article to download.
