Interessenausgleich im Urheberrecht

Interessenausgleich im Urheberrecht

Immer haufiger wird der stetig ausgebaute urheberrechtliche Schutz von Werken und sonstigen Leistungen als Hemmschuh fur die Entwicklung einer globalen Wissens- und Informationsgesellschaft empfunden. Im November 2003 veranstaltete das Max-Planck-Institut fur Geistiges Eigentum, Wettbewerbs- und Steuerrecht eine Tagung zur Frage, ob das geltende Urheberrecht noch einen angemessenen Ausgleich zwischen den Interessen der Kreativen, der Verwerter und der nutzenden Allgemeinheit herstellt oder ob und inwieweit es korrekturbedurftig erscheint. Die im Rahmen dieser Tagung entstandenen und in diesem Tagungsband versammelten Beitrage in- und auslandischer Urheberrechtler gehen dieser Problematik auf vier Ebenen nach: - der Schutzbereich des Urheberrechts (u.a. Urheberrecht und privater Werkgenuss, Erschopfung des Urheberrechts bei Online-Nutzung); - der Rechtsschutz technischer Schutzmaanahmen (u.a.: Auswirkungen von DRM auf die Zukunft des Urheberrechts); - die inneren und auaeren Schranken des Urheberrechts (u.a.: Kartellrecht, Grundrechte); - das Verhaltnis von Urheberrecht und Vertragsrecht (u.a. Wirksamkeit von AGB, die an sich zulassige Schrankennutzungen untersagen).
