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.

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...
