Abstract

US and Europe take bite out of copyright The US Supreme Court opened the door for US vendors to sell electronic versions of white‐page telephone directories, while the European Commission looked to be closing the door on European database compilers. Both decisions deal with the thornier issues of copyright that could mean millions in revenues gained in the US, and lost in the EC's information industry.
