Ana Ramalho: 'The role of the ECJ in the development of the EU mandate in copyright'

This chapter from Ana Ramalho's Ph.D. thesis will focus on the use of the mechanism of negative integration in the field of copyright from the perspective of competence development. It recalls that, long before the first Directive concerning copyright was enacted, the ECJ had already set the stage for the EU to act. In fact, it influenced the demarcation of powers between the Union and its Members in a time where the division of powers was all but clear. It will be submitted that such demarcation is not of mere historical interest only, as it provides a useful normative tool to be used by the legislature when working in the field of copyright.

Ana Ramalho is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Amsterdam's Institute for Information Law and ACELG. She writes her thesis on the EU competences in the field of copyright. Ana obtained her Research Master degree in Intellectual Property at the University of Lisbon and an LL.M. degree in Intellectual Property at the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center in Germany.
