Liliia Oprysk successfully defended her doctoral thesis
The School of Law of the University of Tartu has a new Doctor!
On 9 March Liliia Oprysk succesfully defended her doctoral thesis “Reconciling the Material and Immaterial Dissemination Rights in the Light of the Developments under the EU Copyright Acquis”.
The work was supervised by Professor Karin Sein (University of Tartu), Professor Aleksei Kelli (University of Tartu), Professor Raimundas Matulevičius (University of Tartu) and Associate Professor Lucie Guibault (Dalhousie University).
The work was opposed by Professor P. B. Hugenholtz (University of Amsterdam) and Professor O.-A. Rognstad (University of Oslo).
This thesis explores the development of the key economic rights under the EU copyright acquis against technological advancements and the distinction drawn between material and immaterial dissemination rights under secondary EU law.
It advances the idea that the assumption enshrined under the EU copyright framework at the very outset of harmonisation is outdated and suggests reconciling of the approaches to regulating dissemination-related rights in the light of the developments under the acquis.
