Protection of intellectual property rights in the fashion industry
Duong, Erik ; Holcová, Irena (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
This thesis focuses on the area of intellectual property law in the fashion industry. The main objective of this thesis is to highlight the pressing issues in the fashion industry, to examine the various forms of intellectual property protection applicable in the fashion industry. Following the analysis, an assessment of the impact of fast fashion on the fashion industry is made. The thesis addresses the complex environment of the fashion industry, which is characterised by fast global supply chains and rapid production cycles. However, these dynamics raise significant challenges and unfavourable practices that lack robust legal safeguards. The main problem is the proliferation of low-cost production driven by fast-fashion brands, leading to overconsumption, environmental degradation and labour exploitation. This lack of effective legal measures increases the burden faced by affected communities and contributes to the growing problem of textile waste. In addition, the practices of fast fashion brands, which often copy the designs of both renowned and lesser-known designers, undermine the competitiveness of indigenous creators in the sector. This interaction fosters an environment that favours fast fashion at the expense of sustainable and ethical fashion. The thesis is divided into eight chapters....

Tuzová, Lucie ; Holcová, Irena (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
Copyright aspects of social media advertising Abstract This paper aims to provide an overview of the copyright aspects of advertising content on social networks and to identify the key issues in this area. It first provides the theoretical framework necessary for a proper understanding of the various institutes that are described in the course of the thesis. This includes an introduction to the terms of advertising and social networks, the specifics of which are then presented in the context of a general explanation of the conceptual attributes of a copyright work or a description of the author of the work. As this is a relatively modern and still developing field, the thesis also discusses the innovations that can be seen in social media advertising in recent times. In particular, the use of artificial intelligence tools to create advertising content. The legal framework has not yet been able to respond to the rise in popularity of these tools and the thesis describes possible ways of future regulation. In many parts of the thesis, the complexity of advertising is discussed, for example, from the perspective of the broad set of legal norms regulating advertising or the process of creating advertising content. The advertising chain, which illustrates the complexity of the relationships that arise in the...

Copyright exceptions and limitations with regard to the online environment
Wittlich, Herbert ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Holcová, Irena (referee)
1 Abstract: Copyright exceptions and limitations with regard to the online environment This thesis focuses on the concerns of copyright law exceptions and limitations, with a focus on how they apply in the digital world, especially on the internet. Key elements of copyright law, such as exceptions and limitations, have come under increased examination, particularly in light of current technical developments and the digital revolution. The directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market (DSM Directive), which will be incorporated into Czech law in 2023, is a recent development that is examined in the thesis' analysis of European copyright law. The thesis compares diverse techniques, including those from Anglo-American and European legal traditions, to define and explain exceptions and limitations. The author also looks into how these techniques may be combined, especially how open clauses might be added to the European list of exclusions and limitations. The "three-step test" is looked at in another section of the thesis as a legislative ceiling for the addition of additional exceptions and restrictions. Both at the legislative level and in the implementation of copyright law, this institute is significant. The crux of the thesis is an analysis of the exception for temporary technological reproductions...
Blockchain and copyright
Novotný, Martin ; Holcová, Irena (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
1 Blockchain and copyright Abstract The purpose of this Thesis is to familiarize the reader with the phenomenon of blockchain, both technically and legally, and then to describe the points of intersection of the sets of this phenomenon with copyright law, especially the copyright law of the Czech Republic. The first and second chapters of the Thesis focus on introducing the reader to the blockchain (especially in its technical aspect) and on defining important institutes of copyright law, both in general and regarding the Czech legislation. In the third chapter, the thesis focuses on the assessment of the applicability of certain copyright institutes to the blockchain, particularly its possible regulation as a quasi-work under Section 2(2) of the Copyright Act. The following chapter follows this intersection of blockchain and copyright law with a deeper analysis of NFTs, as this is the area of blockchain most often in contact with copyright law. Considerable attention is paid to assessing whether NFTs can be considered a copyright work. The fifth chapter of the Thesis is devoted to the emerging phenomenon of the metaverse, in particular the definition of its typology. Subsequently, certain points of contact between the metaverse, blockchain and copyright are set out, where this interpretation is followed by...

Kapic, Jan ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Holcová, Irena (referee)
Digital distribution of sound works with a focus on the status of the author and his remuneration in the context of popular and production music Abstract This thesis deals with the digital distribution of music, the status of the author in the online environment and the remuneration of rights holders for the use of these works and the legal framework set by Directive (EU) 2019/790 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 on copyright and related rights in the digital market and amending Directives 96/9/EC and 2001/29/EC and its transposition into the Czech legal order. In the first chapter, I define an important historical context for the material discussed below, in terms of technical development and legal uniformity. The second chapter is devoted to the definition of legal terms important for the thesis and the range of legal regulations concerning copyright, primarily Copyright Act No. 121/2000 Coll. The third chapter is devoted to the music sector in terms of the division into production music and popular music and the specifics of their use. The fourth chapter describes the various models of digital music distribution and the pitfalls that have accompanied their dynamic evolution in a society whose legal environment has often been unprepared for and had to respond to them....
NTF copyright protection issues
Nováková, Magdalena ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Císařová, Zuzana (referee)
NTF copyright protection issues Abstract This thesis examines the new emergent phenomenon of non-fungible tokens known as "NFT". NFT reflects the direction in which today's society is moving, that is toward digitalization. Although this phenomenon crosses multiple branches of law, this thesis examines its role in the context of copyright law, with some intersection into other branches which are directly related to it. In particular, the aim of the thesis was to examine the relationship between the NFT, its underlaying material and various aspects of intellectual property rights, in particular the copyright law sector. Whether the application of these legal rules is relevant and the consequences the phenomenon will bring in the future. Last but not least, this thesis seeks to explain the potential that is behind the universality of possible use of NFTs. The challenging aspect has been the under-explored field in which the NFT is found, which offers possibilities of free reflection and speculation. Because of the lack of legal regulation, one of the main methods used in this thesis has been the analogy of legal norms that can be reasonably applied. The process of comparison with other digital assets and their placement in the context of the law also helped in understanding the role and function of NFTs. In...

Chaloupecký, Daniel ; Císařová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
Case law of the CJEU and Czech courts on the use of works on the Internet Abstract This thesis deals with the issue of the use of copyright works on the Internet and its aim is to compile an overview of the most relevant case law on the subject and to analyse it in appropriate sections. Systematically, it consists of three main chapters. The first is of an introductory, general nature and focuses on the interpretation of the basic concepts of copyright in general and the question of authorship. In the second chapter, the author focuses on the institutes and the European and Czech legislation in force on the use of copyright works, which is viewed through a rather general prism. Already here, however, the Internet aspect of the problem is gradually emphasized and, to increase the reader's comfort, references to previous or subsequent parts are made extensively throughout the work. The sometimes neglected institute of public licenses and open source software is also given prominence. The third, most extensive and central chapter of the thesis, discusses firstly the phenomenon of the World Wide Web and its perception from a legal point of view and continues by describing the most important specifics of the use of copyright works on the Internet. This is followed by a battery of specific uses of copyright works...
