Abstract

With the advance of the internet and its global reach, using and sharing content worldwide has never been easier. However, copyright laws differ from one country to another and whilst it would be impossible to familiarise yourself with them all, this article looks at some of the key differences between the UK, US and major European regimes to help you reduce any risk of infringing the law. It looks specifically at the differences between common and civil law, fair use and fair dealing, moral rights, registration and copyright exceptions.
