This standard commentary for copyright practice includes all statutory innovations – including the Knowledge Society Copyright Act (UrhWissG) enacted on 30 June 2017 – as well as current German and European jurisprudence. The Publishing Act (VerlG) is also commented as is the Portability Ordinance, the first EU regulation in the field of copyright law. New additions include comments on Open Source Software as well as on plagiarism.
