Jírovská, Alena ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Wünschová Pujmanová, Alexandra (referee)
RESUMÉ Copyright protection under the Czech and U.S. law The main purpose of this thesis is to compare the key aspects of the European civil law approach and the Anglo-American system of the copyright protection. This paper also aims to outline current issues that copyright protection confronts in the digital age. The first of the five chapters is introductory and describes general concepts that both of the legal systems are based on. It addresses the philosophical backgrounds and evolution of the European and Anglo- American legal traditions and also mentions the relevant Czech and U.S. legislation. The differences between the civil law and the common law theories are explained by illustrating the individualistic European approach founded on the natural rights philosophy and the commercial U.S. approach based on utilitaristic principles. The second chapter is dedicated to explaining the subject matter of copyright under the Czech and U.S. laws. The categories of the original works of authorship are described and, above all, attention is given to the moment in which the copyright protection is effectively created. Under the Czech law, the legal conditions are met when expressing the work in any form that is objectively perceivable by a human being. On the other hand, the requirement of fixing the work in...

Legal regulation of franchising with respect to intellectual property protection aspects
Michalcová, Lenka ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
Legal regulation of franchising with respect to intellectual property protection aspects The aim of the submitted thesis is to analyse the phenomenon of franchising as an instrument of commercialisation of intellectual property rights, assessment of the importance of these rights to existence and functioning of the system, instruments of its protection as well as the dynamics of the relationship between the franchisor and the franchisees in relation to these rights. The work consists of four topical sections. The first one is focused on franchising in general terms. It emphasises the internal differentiation of the phenomenon and presents the basic types of franchise systems, we might come across. Subsequently it strives for theoretical definition of the term by means of comparison. The second section of the work is devoted to the term of intellectual property. This chapter is introduced by a brief classification of the rights subordinated to the term which is followed by a discussion on significance of these rights to franchise systems. Subsequently is the focal point moved to the issues of trademark law and know-how protection, which are, in my opinion, from the franchising standpoint crucial. The third section of the work deals with trademarks, without aspiring on comprehensiveness of the...
