Cristiana Sappa, Radim Polčák, Matěj Myška, Jakub Harašta

Abstract

This analysis is aimed at identifying best practices on legal rules and contractual transfers of rights in the area of public sector works in different European Union countries. A particular attention is devoted to cultural institutions legal rules and practices as well. More precisely, this document focuses on three different levels of the public sector works production and circulation: i. legal rules on protectability of works, ii. legal rules and contractual practices on rights ownership, iii. legal rules and other practices implemented within the cultural institutions. 
Please note that this analysis was written on the basis of national responses to the questionnaire provided by the LAPSI 2.0 partners and that this list is not intended to be exhaustive. This analysis mainly focuses on copyright, while the sui generis database protection will be further analysed at a later stage.
