1 Internet and Copyright Abstract This master's thesis discusses the role and effect of copyright in the ever-changing Internet environment which (due to its specifics) requires special legislature providing for exploitation of creative works. The main aim of this thesis is to analyze relevant legal aspects of important ways of use of author's works in cyberspace, identify the problematic areas in currently effective legal framework and evaluate the possible outcomes of recently adopted EU copyright reform on a digital single market. The thesis is divided into five chapters where the first two serve as a general introduction to the topic while the following three are rather analytically descriptive or almost exclusively analytic. The first chapter focuses on Internet's technical background and thus forms the necessary basis for subsequent reading. Its content is not limited to terminology but also encompasses the description of Internet's main technical features which largely affect the boundaries for digital copyright. Finally, legitimacy of regulation in cyberspace is discussed and eventually approved. The second chapter provides a general insight into the key aspects, principles and sources of copyright law which is vital for understanding the topics discussed in the following chapters. At the end, main...

Digital possibilities in international interlibrary lending: with or despite German copyright law
Clasen, Nicole
The German interlibrary loan service is a good and solid basic solution for the supply of literature between libraries within Germany and some other countries. It has proven itself both nationally and internationally. But in what form will it be needed in the future? Which digital possibilities does it offer our users regarding delivery or electronic media? Copyright law in Germany promises to have the right answers to the demands of modern digital working and studying. But does the copyright law also make this possible for German interlibrary lending? German libraries have the advantage that only a few countries worldwide have a copyright that contains a special section for interlibrary lending, and Germany is one of them. However, this positive effect does not make it easier for foreign libraries.

Cooperative Storage Library Switzerland (CSLS): sharing of content and resources – providing quick and modern services
Tschirren, Daniel ; Grossgarten, Astrid
In the Speicherbibliothek/CSLS libraries of ZHB Luzern, UB Basel, ZB Zuerich, UZH Zuerich and St. Gallen University Library store parts of their holdings. Storage room is tight and expensive in the cities and holdings are growing faster than sorting out of duplicates is being made. A centralized storage unit in a rural area with good traffic connection seemed a logical solution. In 2016 the Speicherbibliothek came into gear. It is build and equipped like a modern high density fully automated storage unit. With regard to monographs and anthologies the stored items belong still to the giving library and still appear in their catalogue system. These items are the so called individual stock of the partners and can be borrowed. With regard to journals things are different. Most of them are now part of the so called collective stock. The goal is a complete series of a stocked journal title. In case of a user request to copies out of a journal the pages will be copied and sent via a workflow system either to the reader or a library. The journal volume itself will not leave the storage unit anymore. The partners of Speicherbibliothek use the same workflow system (MyBib eDoc®) to manage and monitor their lending processes. In the background this system routes the incoming lending or copy requests from the library patrons to CSLS and manages the automated delivery of scanned pages. In addition to the above described outlines the presentation will include following aspects: Restrictions of copyright, Conservational issues, Deduplication (virtual and physical), Visibility of stored items in the catalogue and for the user/impact on requests, Financial aspects vs. librarian wishes

Copyrighted work and advertising
Vojtovič, Jakub ; Císařová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
The Aim of this thesis is to link the theoretical aspects of copyright with its practical use. Specifically it is an analysis of relationship between copyright and advertising. In the thesis I am trying to find an answer for two main questions. First, if it is possible to grant a copyright protection to an advertisement and if so, then it is my goal to discover its usefulness. Second, the other answer should be based on analysis of preexisting copyrighted works used in advertisement. The thesis is divided into 8 chapters which consist of other sub- chapters. The first chapter is dedicated to copyright, its legal framework and analysis of historical and social background of its development. The second chapter is focused on advertising. Since the definition of advertising offered by the Czech laws is insufficient for the purpose of this thesis I decided to offer a marketing point-of-view to clarify the subject. The third chapter offers an analysis of current legislation of copyrighted work in the Czech Republic. The fourth chapter represents the first encounter of the two ostensibly unrelated topics: advertising and copyright. This chapter also presents a copyrighted work as a new notion while focusing on its creation and purpose. Here, we can also find a small turnoff to a copyright legislation of...
Relations between media organizations and digital intermediaries
Bešťák, Václav ; Soukeník, Štěpán (advisor) ; Křeček, Jan (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on the relations between digital intermediaries and media organizations on the Czech market. Its goal is to describe a new, ever-evolving environment, which has been affected by the swift rise of digital platforms and by the change in business models of publishers. The thesis puts this phenomenon in the context of media studies and critical political economy and defines the terms "digital platforms" and "digital intermediaries". It also looks more closely at the current challenges related with the content consumption in the digital environment - which includes a discussion of copyright, changes in user behavior and content monetization. The research part is based on individual in-depth interviews with members of digital intermediaries, media organizations and third parties. The analysis takes place in a general, ethical/normative point of view and aims for understanding how the parties interact and work together, how they perceive this environment, how they see its changes and future development.
