The ALAI's Report and Opinion on the making available and communication to the public in the internet environment – focus on linking techniques on the Internet can be read in full here
The Report and Opinion were worked out recognizing that the use of linking techniques, be it hypertext links or inline links, is prominent in almost any Internet activity, thus fundamental for the well-functioning of the web environment. Just as important is the fact that links may be used for addressing protected works and related subject matter to the public. The Report and Opinion is therefore built on a need to clarify how and to what extent linking measures may be embraced by the fundamental making available or communication to the public rights".
JIPLP proposes to follow closely the judicial and legislative developments that attend this subject and welcomes Current Intelligence notes and articles that discuss their many legal, economic and practical ramifications. Submissions from all sectors of industry and commerce are welcome.
