Editorial

Today’s consumption of photography and its digital
equivalents has enormous effects on the way we deal with pictures,
as we have already pointed out in EIKON several times before. In this
way digital technology, which is still relatively young and is marked
by simple options for the transmission, manipulation and copying
of intellectual property, also throws up new legal questions about
licensing. On the one hand, the presence of visual contents on the
Internet seems to make it difficult for legal proprietors to succeed in
keeping an overview of the digital spread of works once they have been
made public. On the other hand, there is a dominant impression that
users increasingly lack understanding of the need to respect possible
copyrights.
It is precisely at this point—between the interests of artists
and the public—that copyright companies can act as professional
mediators. For this issue’s main focus “Copyright Law in the Digital
Age”, EIKON has for the first time combined its efforts with those of a
reputable Austrian institution, working in close cooperation with the
Bildrecht, Gesellschaft zur Wahrnehmung visueller Rechte in Vienna,
to produce three contributions: in a round of experts with Günter
Schönberger and Philip M. Jakober relevant questions on topical
problems in the copyright laws are discussed. Using an example from
practice, a case that has attracted international attention, it is shown when
the illegal use of a work of art really exists and what steps can be taken
to deal with it. This topic is rounded off with a glossary that summarizes
and explains the most important terms in the context of this focus.

We hope you will enjoy reading this and all the other
contributions to the present issue!
