Position papers and responses to legislative amendments formulated by the Clinic
The Clinic's response to the memorandum on the Copyright (Amendment No. …) Technological Protective Measures and Electronic Information Concerning Copyright Privileges, 2012 [in Hebrew].
The proposed memorandum deals with technological protection measures. Digital rights management (DRM) technologies are special measures designed to expand the degree of copyright owners' control of their intellectual property assets. The memorandum seeks to give legal protection against circumvention of these locks and thus expand the current right of the author. Expansion of this right may possibly lead to reduced piracy but it might seriously damage the production of new works. For further reading - you can read the position paper [in Hebrew]. The position paper was prepared by students in the clinic: Elada Askalski, Uri Sabach and Diana Saponkov under the legal supervision of Adv. Dalit Ken-Dror, Legal Supervisor of the clinic [in Hebrew].
