Adapting the National and Union Rules on Copyright in the Digital Era

Amelia Singh



Copyright protects the expression of an idea, not the idea itself. The relationship between freedom of creation and copyright has always been complicated, and the current situation of copyright requires that it be re-established as an institution, in order to respond to new challenges. 
As a result of the evolution of the technique, the introduction and development of new media, information and new communications technologies, there have been constant changes to copyright laws. 
At the internal level, the last changes made in this field can be found in Law 
no. 15/2019 for amending and supplementing Law no. 8/1996 on copyright and related rights. Also at the level of the European Union, new provisions on copyright and related rights have been adopted, Directive no. 2019/790, which will be implemented in the national laws of the Member States of the European Union up to the specified deadlines.
