General Remarks on Implementation

The EUCD, and six other DG Internal Markt Directives were implemented by March 2005

Core Issues

Anti-Circumvention Provisions

For example, how have the provisions on TPMs been implemented in Macedonian copyright law? (From Art 11 WCT and Art 6.4 EUCD). Can users circumvent a TPM to avail of a lawful exception? If not, how does a user or a library make use of a work subject to a TPM? Are there remedies for users and libraries where rightholders do not cooperate?

Peer Collaboration

This is about filesharing over peer-to-peer networks. How does Macedonian copyright law treat uploading and downloading? Does the latter come within a private copy exception? Are consumers in Macedonia being sued by music companies?

Universal Access

What exceptions & limitations are there in Macedonian copyright law for education, libraries, private study, people with disabilities, etc.
