An article by Ms. Joanna Matczuk and Ms. Magdalena Michalska of SMM Legal, entitled Legalne linkowanie? (Legal link posting?) focuses on the legal aspects of link posting in the context of the latest CJEU judgement. It was published in the 11/01/2017 print issued of Rzeczpospolita, a major Polish daily.
In their text the lawyers discuss and analyse the potential liability of a professional entity for the infringement of copyright arising from link posting. The article presents the CJEU position on this matter and the case law pattern developed by Polish courts, with special emphasis on the influence of EU case law in this respect.
We highly recommend this highly informative text.
