Copyright: Exceptions

I have updated and transposed an article on the exceptions (acts permitted in relation to copyright works) contained in Chapter III of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. These exceptions have been revised by The Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003 (SI 2003 No 2498). Those regulations implemented Directive 2001/29/EC (Copyright and Related Rights Directive) which essentially gave effect to many of the provisions of the WIPO Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty as The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 did in the USA. This is very significant legislation.

I have also uploaded a presentation and handout that Alex and I did in 2004 in Kingsgate Chambers. The handout is a complete “before” and “after” analysis of Chapter III.


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
