Legal Protection of Artistic Performance
Leška, Rudolf ; Císařová, Zuzana (referee)
The thesis offers a systematic overview of the law of performers' rights. This specific field of law forms no major area of law by itself, but rather covers various legal regulations that are related to artistic performances. The author argues for specific protection of an artistic performance which emanates from the protection of a persona as it is understood by the theory of natural law. The author thus opposes those who consider the protection of a performer to be only a protection of an investment in the economic competition. That being said, it is impossible to automatically apply authors' rights to performers because of numerous differences between the two. The performer is not creating a new work of art which would enrich the knowledge of mankind, but only performs an existing work of art, making the societal benefit of an authors' work greater. The author therefore opposes the notion that Art. 34(1) of the Czech Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms can be applied to artistic performances. Nevertheless, the protection of artistic performances is necessary because the society does not need only the existence of authors' creations, but also needs the art to be performed, if live art is to exist at all. Today, when live art is endangered more than ever before by technologies allowing...
The Internet and copyright-the scope of liability of individual parties involved and modes of protection against piracy
Voráčková, Klára ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (referee)
1 Abstract The Internet and copyright - the scope of liability of individual parties involved and modes of protection against piracy The main purpose of this diploma thesis is to evaluate the current state of the legal regulation of copyright in relation to the responsibility for violation of such law in the Internet environment. The thesis contains a list of valid Czech and European legal standards and a list of international treaties affecting the topic. I have also analyzed the responsibility for copyright infringement on the Internet in the light of primarily European case law. Given the so-called Europeanization of law and its impact on copyright law, European case law has a great significance also for the decision- making of Czech courts. I chose the topic of my thesis because the connection between law and the Internet appears to me as interesting and this area is constantly evolving and changing, as the Internet itself has become an absolutely unpredictable area in terms of the number of active users. Another problematic and very interesting area is the conflict of features, namely the features of the Internet that are inherently non-border, and copyright, which is territorial. I have judged this conflict of interest in the light of both the offline and the online world, which addresses the wider...

Kocarová, Klára ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Císařová, Zuzana (referee)
1 CERTAIN ASPECTS OF COPYRIGT IN THE DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET OF THE EUROPEAN UNION, CURRENT DEVELOPMENT ABSTRACT This rigorosum thesis "Certain aspects of copyright in the digital single market of the European Union, current development" concerns with the modernization of copyright within the EU. The main target of this thesis is to introduce and critically analyze selected articles of the proposal for a directive COM (2016) 593 final on copyright in the Digital Single Market (hereinafter referred to as the "DSM directive") in wording proposed by The / A Commission in September 2016 (the description of some omitted provisions are included) and subsequently compare them with the amendments of the European Parliament and its committees. Particularly by the presentation of the professional public's opinions, I examine whether the selected provisions are proportionate, appropriate and able to reach intended targets. In the situations where I find it problematical I deal with the questions of possible compatibility and coexistence of the proposal with the current legal framework in the future. The thesis is concerned with documents proposed by the EU within the program of modernization copyright since 2016 and reflects development of the DSM directive proposal until the end of November 2018 when the manuscript was...

It also reflects European law including actual case-law. The main goal of the thesis is to show how both protections work, their mutual relation, eventually how and in which situations their convergence happens and what can be the consequences of it from the protection point of view. In the first chapter of my thesis we find introduction that brings the subject to the topic, including aim of the thesis. After that comes seven main chapters and a final conclusion. Initially in chapter two and three of my thesis, I define the basic concepts dealing with Intellectual property and law related to intangible property. Subsequently description of the simultaneous operation of both protections is discussed and based on that their similarities and differences are highlighted. The focus is on analysis of both protections, subjects of both protections, their beneficiaries, formation, duration, means and international...

An Author's Right in the Information Society and Across the Internal European Union Market
Mikita, Peter ; Kříž, Jan (advisor) ; Srstka, Jiří (referee) ; Hendrychová, Michaela (referee)
Copyright law is a special category of civil law which, with the upswing of the Internet, has become important for different types of stakeholders in the global information society. The 'participative web' operates with content generated by users. This user-generated content has often disputable origins in terms of copyright clearance. The Internet has opened the possibility for developing new forms of communication between anonymous or individual users who are not easily identifiable. Especially peer-to-peer file sharing and recently the information services offered and operated by the so-called 'cyberlockers' are the reason of questioning the role of copyright protection online which needs a beneficial solution. Copyright infringement in the era of information society is a complex phenomenon with a multiplicity of contributing factors like the importance of information data with big business potential, personal attitudes shown by internet users towards the value and scarcity of intellectual property, or legal responsibility of internet service providers (ISP) who paradoxically act from the safety of the so-called safe harbours as intermediaries of information exchange, representing a new element in the communication chain between rights holders and users. Commercial and business models operating...
Legal protection of computer programs
Šurina, Štefan ; Kříž, Jan (advisor) ; Frinta, Ondřej (referee) ; Pítra, Vladimír (referee)
1 Abstract (English) Legal protection of computer program The subject of the thesis is the legal protection of computer programs. The thesis provides for various perspectives of legal protection analysis, namely static protection, dynamic changes and perspectives for enforcement. The aim is to summarize the complex view on forms of protection and disposals of computer programs, especially taking into consideration extremely fast technological advances in the latest decades. This view on legal protection is further extended by a short analysis of development of protection and enforcement of rights related to computer programs within the digital environment. It is essential to view the protection of computer programs as a very specific subject of legal relations. Computer programs have emerged just recently and the opinions on their protection still vary. The primary form of protection is the copyright protection. However, computer programs are defined typically by their functional character which is not reflected by standard copyright protection. Legal protection is therefore amended to reflect these aspects via implementation of specific rights based on directives on protection of computer programs. The thesis reflects also judicial advances, especially taking into consideration the shifts in the...
Moral rights in the Czech Republic and in selected countries of continental and Common Law legal systems
Votava, Antonín ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
Moral rights in the Czech Republic and in selected countries of continental and Common Law legal systems Abstract This thesis focuses on moral rights, which together with economic rights form one of basic ways how to divide copyright law. The primary function of moral (copyright) rights is to protect various rights of the author, which are not economic rights. In the introduction part of this thesis there are basic definitions and specifications of moral rights and their genesis in the continental legal system. The second chapter explains the different approach to moral copyright in the continental legal system and in the Common Law legal system, including a short historical excursion into those legal systems. The third chapter is briefly dedicated to the development of copyright law with the emphasis on moral rights during the 18th century, explanation of the difference between one-tier and two-tier approach to copyright law and certain issues regarding the territoriality of law. It also contains relevant legal acts that were in force in the Czech Republic during the 20th and partially during the 19th century. The fourth chapter consists of thorough explanation concerning each type of moral rights in the Copyright act that is currently in force in the Czech Republic. The fifth chapter is devoted to moral...
Internet and copyright
Tuček, Jakub ; Holcová, Irena (advisor) ; Křesťanová, Veronika (referee)
The thesis titled "Internet and Copyright" focuses on the effects of copyright in the Internet environment and challenges that the Internet represents for traditional copyright. The main purpose of this thesis is to define the most frequent ways of use of author's works and exercise of copyright on the Internet and to analyse the current Czech and European legislation, to what extent it is applicable to and suitable for common situations in the Internet environment and what are the weaknesses of the legislation. The first two chapters serve as the introduction to the issue. While the first chapter is devoted to the Internet phenomenon in respect of its definition, legal regulation, significance at the present time and current issues related to its use, the second chapter includes some basic knowledge of copyright that is essential to understand for the purposes of further text of the thesis - in particular the definition of the author's work, the system of exceptions and limitations of copyright and the most important international and EU copyright laws. The third chapter could be considered the essential part of the thesis. This chapter first presents what forms of works we can find on the Internet, underlining the fact that the Internet as a whole is primarily composed of results of creative...

Kudrlička, Adam ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (referee)
The Internet and copyright - the scope of liability of individual parties involved and modes of protection against piracy Abstract The main aim of this thesis is to evaluate the extension of Internet piracy as well as to determine which subjects are liable for the unlawful sharing of files and copyright protected works by using different platforms. I have decided to write about this topic primarily because of the persisting phenomenon of Internet piracy and copyright infringement. In this thesis I am proposing some ideas which could help to fight Internet piracy. I am also considering current EU legislation and the EU case-law regarding copyright on the Internet. The thesis is divided into eleven chapters, which include sub-chapters. The opening chapter introduces the reader to the piracy phenomenon and copyright infringement. The following chapters deal with the evolution of the Internet in the world in general and in the Czech Republic specifically. The third chapter describes copyright in cyberspace. Further, I consider the relevant international law, legal sources of copyright in the EU and the copyright legislation in the Czech Republic, including the protection against administrative offences in the field of copyright and criminal offences. The fourth chapter highlights specific examples of liability...
