Hyperlinking and Copyright Issues

Hyperlinking and Copyright Issues

The burgeoning use of the internet throughout the international business world raises considerable intellectual property issues. Businesses must be vigilant. The copyright implications for businesses that use hyperlinks in their website content to other online content have recently been considered in detail by the European court. ParrisWhittaker’s intellectual property lawyers are experts in advising businesses on their IP issues and we welcome the clarification this ruling gives to us and our clients. What led to the case? Journalists for the Swedish newspaper, Göteborgs-Posten, and an associated web-site, claimed compensation for copyright infringement against a website operator. The operator provided clients with lists of clickable links to published articles without the journalists’ permission.
