European Law Works to Move Copyright Into the 21st Century
by Nancy K. Herther
Technische Universit├Ąt (TU) Darmstadt digitized a book from German publisher Eugen Ulmer KG without receiving permission in order to post sections of it for course reading. Eugen Ulmer filed suit, and on Sept. 11, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that libraries, "for the purpose of research or private study," can digitize works as a legitimate fair use exemption to European Union (EU) copyright law, with some specific limitations. This decision is the most recent effort by the EU to translate existing law and common practices into the evolving realities of 21st-century technology and society.
