The book deals in detail with the requirements of existing copyright
exceptions, for libraries in German statutory copyright law. In Germany,
the same as in all other EU member states, it is the rule that for
copyright related “exploitations”, such as copying, distribution,
presentation or (internet-) communication to the public , there must
exist a copyright exception or, if the conditions for such an exception
are not met, the consent of the copyright holder must be provided. In
2018, especially for scientists, research and educational institutions,
libraries and other cultural heritage institutions , new exceptions were
created in §§ 60a ff. of the German Copyright Act (UrhG). At the time
of publication of this version of the book, the next copyright reform is
on its way, namely the implementation of the “Copyright in the Digital
Single Market” Directive (“DSM Directive”). This publication refers to
the provisions of the Directive from the respective passages. The DSM
Directive must be implemented into German law by June 7, 2021.
