Copyright Amendments

CK - Washington.   Attorney General Brigitte Zypries announced today the plans for substantial amendments to the copyright statute. A major set of amendments entered into force on September 1, 2003. Those amendments implemented European Union rules. The second set represents a German effort to bring the copyright law in line with advances in technology and practice.

The web site of the Department of Justice presents an overview of not only the intended revisions but also the input to the department from the public.
