Belgische Vereniging van Auteurs, Componisten en Uitgevers CVBA (SABAM) v. Netlog NV

Court Decisions

The following judgment by the European Court of Justice deals with International Property Rights (IPR) and potential IPR infringements. ECJ had to determine whether a Belgian court could ask Netlog (the Belgian equivalent to Facebook) not to make available works from SABAM’s collection by installing a filtering system, thus requiring Netlog to monitor data of its users and prevent future IPR infringements.
