This extremely profound analysis by Professor Rosati of EU copyright protection and relevant CJEU decisions constitutes uncharted territory, unveiling new information, perhaps never considered, even by members of the Court like myself. Professor Rosati’s book addresses, from an original and forward-thinking perspective, some of the most complex, challenging, and pressing aspects of the EU copyright framework. I am certain that the book will contribute to an awareness of the many challenges facing copyright protection, both on the EU and global level, as well as the importance of EU law and the Court of Justice.

In this systematic, statistically informed, account of the decisions of the CJEU in the field of copyright, Eleonora Rosati analyses the Court's central role in deepening harmonization of copyright law in the EU and lays bare the reasoning that underpins that approach.

Eleonora Rosati is a very gifted scholar with a unique ability to synthesize diverse, complex concepts into easy to understand English. No where is such skill more necessary than in figuring out the CJEU's baffling jurisprudence. This book is a must for everyone.
- Bill Patry, Senior Copyright Counsel at Google and author of Patry on Copyright
This volume is the product of the happy conjunction of penetrating scholarship, a meticulous eye for detail, prodigious enthusiasm and unbounded energy. Dr Rosati should be congratulated for her valuable and timely contribution to European copyright literature.
