Hi again

Competition Law was today’s subject. Not the easiest subject to handle, but very important since it is one of the main subjects regarding the internal market in EU.

You must first understand the concept of ”free movement of goods” within the internal market which means that quantitative restrictions on import and export to/from Member States are forbidden, art 34 and 35 TFEU. However art 36 TFEU allows restrictions justified on grounds of e.g. protection of industrial property. But art 345 TFEU says that The Treaties shall in no way prejudice the rules in Member States governing the system of property ownership. Since National IP-Law often will restrict import and export the ECJ have ruled that the specific subject matter regarding IP Property rights shall be separated from the exercise of the rights. It means that art 345 TFEU only regulates the specific subject matter and the ECJ can decide questions regarding the exercise of the rights. The ECJ have ruled that National IP-Law can not on the grounds of IP-rights prohibit parallel import.

When this is clear to you then you move over to art 101 TFEU. It is very important that you can break down the sentence into all separate prerequisites. Study the paper regarding art 101 TFEU that you will find on the homepage. You must know the definitions of e.g. ”agreements”, ”undertakings” and ”concerted practices”. When you feel that you understand art 101 continue to art 102. Remember that it is not against the Law to have a dominant position on the relevant market. It is the abuse of that dominant position that is illegal. Read the highlighted parts of The Swedish Competition Act that you will find on the homepage and read the Brochure that you will find in the reading instructions for today’s lecture.

Hope you are still alive 😉

Take care

Hi again

Seminar B regarding IP-Law.
I feel that we had a good discussion around the questions and I am very satisfied with your answers. Some of the questions were a little bit difficult and maybe you did not understand what answer I expected but I hope that you learned some new things when we, together, discussed the answers.

Now you will have two lectures of International Tax Law and after that we will continue with Competition Law and Public Procurement.

Take care 🙂
Best regards,

Hi again

Why so much focus on Swedish Copyright Act?
I think that it is very important that you learn to see the connections between the different articles in Berne Convention and the different articles in National Law in a country that have signed Berne Convention. Another important thing to learn is how different EU Directives are implemented in National Law. The purpose of today’s focus on Swedish Law is not to learn Swedish Law (that is a benefit you get for free so you don’t end up in Swedish jail 🙂 ). The main thing for you to see and understand is the interaction between international conventions, EU legal acts and National Law. With that understanding it will be easy, or less difficult, to interpret the articles in Berne Convention and EU Directives. After reading all yellow marked parts in the documents that you find on the homepage I hope that you will find the book more easy to understand.

I will put out the movie from the first hour of today’s lecture now. The rest will come tomorrow. It takes so much time to edit and render the recordings.
Please let me know if you like the movies or not. Because if you don’t like them it is not worth the extra work I put in to them.

Take care.
Se you Friday 🙂

Hi again

Today was a very tough lecture. I think it started very good, the first hour flew away. After the coffee brake we went into the more heavy part, pinpointing the most important articles in Berne Convention. I forgot to take a brake 🙁 and I am glad that you finally asked for a brake but I think it was a little bit to late. I am glad you did not fall asleep. Anyway the last part of the lecture was a little disorganized, sorry for that. As a compensation I have uploaded on the homepage some EU Directives and the Swedish Copyright Act. I have marked all important parts with yellow color. I will do a short summary of the Swedish Copyright Act on the next lecture.

Unfortunately the recording of the lecture only worked the first hour, I don’t know what happened after that. It is too difficult for me to focus on both the recording and the lecture at the same time. The subject is too difficult for that 🙁 . Now my other computer is rendering the movie and I will put it out on the homepage as soon as it is ready.

The slides for Wednesdays lecture is now on the homepage.

Take care 😉

Hi again

Seminar A regarding CISG.
I am quite happy with today’s seminar. So many of you came and i felt that most of you were very well prepared. No doubt We must have scared you a lot 😉 .
I feel that it is a little bit better with smaller groups and it is more easy for you to speak. We went through all the questions and we really opened up the question and covered a broader area then just answering the question. I think that will be very valuable for you in the future exams. Maybe you felt that you got to little time to present your answers? Let me know how you feel? It is important for me to get feedback since we have one more seminar coming up.
I am now very confident that you have a good understanding about CISG and a good training in reading and understanding a convention and that will help you when we start to dig into the Berne Convention on Monday. Be happy we have a lot more to learn 🙂

The slides about offer and accept is now on the home page.

Thank you all, You did great today, I am impressed.
Have a nice weekend and see you Monday morning 🙂

Best regards,
Krister

Hi

The first and maybe the only Webinar on this course, I have not decided yet about the future.
I will wait and see what comments I will get here on the blogg.

I, personally, think it was a OK Webinar. Maybe it was to much jumping between documents but on the other hand I don’t know how to do it in a better way. It is always a question of time. To make it better I think I must have a two hour Webinar on this subject, maybe with 10 minutes brake after one hour. But I don know if you would listen to me that long?

I am convinced that this will be the way in future to learn, but we need to develop the way we structure the courses to make the best out of it.

I am very interested in your opinions on how to improve this.

Feel free to write, good and bad things about the Webinar.

The link to the Webinar movie is now on homepage and you can also print out the case with my marks.

Best regards,
Krister

Hi again…..

Short late night comments on today’s lecture.

I am pretty empty in my head right now. I have been grading tax exams after I came home from today’s lecture and it is getting late so I don’t know what to write.

The time went so fast today. I was afraid I did not have enough material with me but I must have talked a lot because I did not have time to go through everything I wanted 🙁 . I am so lucky that I can compensate my mistake by giving you a Webinar on Monday morning at 9 am 🙂 . I will put out a link to the Webinar on the homepage tomorrow.

It is very important that you read the Directive 95/46/EC and also the case C-101/01 before Monday morning. I will summarize the Directive and guide you through the case on the Webinar.

I need to get some sleep now
Take care 🙂
Best regards,
Krister
