Copyright protection of data mining
Slezáková, Pavla ; Holcová, Irena (advisor) ; Žikovská, Petra (referee)
The importance of data in the information society is steadily increasing. Today's digital economy revolves around the information and communications technology and data are being produced and collected in unprecedented volume. That is why this thesis focuses on the complicated relationship between data and law with an emphasis on copyright law. The thesis itself is divided into four chapters. First chapter explores the nature of data and information as such and shows that neither legal theory, nor legal practise offers a complex concept and methodology of data or information. Second chapter presents various areas of law which can provide protection of data in different contexts. The protection of certain types od data can be achieved by both relative and absolute rights but there is no absolute right that protects data as such. Third chapter focuses on intellectual property rights, particularly on copyright law and database protection law. This area of law is presented both in general terms and in terms of data protection. It shows which conditions must be met for data to become a subject of intellectual property laws. A primary objective of the last chapter is to introduce a term of data mining both from technical and legal perspective. In the past years various laws related to data mining were...

Münzberger, Tomáš ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Holcová, Irena (referee)
Copyright law protection in the US and Europe Abstract The thesis compares copyright in the US and author rights in Europe. The comparison provides historical, theoretical, and international context. The thesis uses national legislation, European acquis, and international agreements. The case law of the EU Court of Justice and the US Supreme Court is used to provide a true picture of current legal regimes. The comparison uses the limits of copyright protection theory. General limits, such as the principles of uniqueness and originality or idea/expression dichotomy, draw the line between protected and unprotected works in selected copyright legislations. The Lockean natural law theory and utilitarian theory are compared to each other from the historical and philosophical points of view. This part of the thesis answers the question of where did these arguments emerge and what is their reason for copyright protection. Subsequently, the thesis introduces Aristotle's teleology as a suitable alternative for developed copyright systems. The following chapter describes international treaties and their role in the standardization of examined copyright systems. The thesis also explores contractual freedom in copyright. This chapter focuses mainly on legal reasons for authors to withdraw from the contract. The next...

Hrdlička, Daniel ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Holcová, Irena (referee)
Song as an author's work and protection of its authors This diploma thesis deals with songs. Each of us listens to them on a daily basis, whether we turn on the radio or Internet TV, go shopping to the mall or directly to the live concert.

The aim of the diploma thesis is to describe what might interest each author of the song. In addition to copyright theory, the author analyzes the song as a separate type of author's work and maps the specifics that distinguish the authors of songs from other authors. The work also focuses on the current legislation dealing with the protection of authors' rights and analyzes in detail several of them, which the author of the thesis considers the most important or overlooked. Klíčová slova: copyright, song, protection of song author's rights
