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