Eu Topic: Legal Protection Of Databases In The Eu

Databases in the EU are protected under the Directive 96/9/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of March 11, 1996 on the Legal Protection of Databases, which is available here. This Directive is aimed at suppressing the differences in the legal protection of databases offered by the legislation of the Member States. As a matter of fact, these differences had negative effects on the functioning of the European market as regards databases and in particular as regards the creation of online databases.
