Presentation of answers from last exam on May 6 at 10.15 — 12.00 in Room R1-121

Hi again

Thank you for today’s seminar.
I think you did a good job on your preparation to the seminar.
We had a good discussion and I hope that you have learned a few things today that you will benefit from in life and in the exams to come.

Have a good time and see you soon 🙂
Best regards

I really appreciated all the questions you put today. It makes it so much more interesting for me to hear from you what is confusing and unclear. Thank you!
I give you some additional material as promised:
As we discussed today it is really complicated how to solve a double tax situation regarding domicile in the two Contracting States, residence under the DTT and decide if both or just one of the Contracting States (in our case are the Contracting States Sweden and Poland) may tax the employment income. I hope this document will help.


Dear Students,
I am sorry that I mixed up the OH:s first. I was using last year’s version first so the one I changed and the one you have is the right one.

I had some more questions after the lecture.

Written exam: As you may see now on the homepage you shall hand in the written exam on December 15 by E-mail so you have almost 3 weeks to finish it. Regarding references to articles in the intellectual property part it is articles in the Berne Convention you shall refer to and articles in CISG in the Contract law part. You must pass both written exam and the Final exam on January 14 to get graduated.

The three levels of liability to tax under Swedish Tax Law:
1. No Swedish tax at all – non-resident on a short term assignment with a foreign employer, OH 25 and 26
2. SINK tax 25 %, non-resident on a short term assignment but with a Swedish employer
3. Residents in Sweden are taxed world wide – thus income from any employer whether Swedish or foreign is taxed here under Swedish national law. An existing DTT between Sweden and another State may change the liability to tax in Sweden only when the State where the work is performed becomes the Resident State under the DTT.
The consequences of Art 15.2 – only the Resident state may tax – is only applicable in a relation DECIDED Resident State – the Source State and when there is no employer in the Source State. I will explain that on Wednesday but think about it.
On Wednesday we will start with all questions you might have so please come forward then with them.


Hello everybody,
This message is about EU law. The lectures are on Wednesday 11,Thursday 12 and Thursdag 19 December. EU law is complicated and I have written a special paper about the main topics in EU Law which Krister will publish. The book TC Hartley is on a rather high level but I have given you references in the paper to the pages you should read. I hope this will be helpful for you. Within short I will add the OH:s. Contact me if any questions. I read the blogg every day.
All the best

Hi again……

I felt we run out of time this lecture. I did not have time to finish the explanation of important articles in The Personal Data Protection Directive.
I will put out the Directive on the homepage and highlight the important parts. We will continue to work with the directive on the webinar.

Next week Inger will start the lectures on Tax Law.

Take care and have a nice weekend 🙂
Best regards,

Hi again……

In today’s lecture we talked about The TRIPS-treaty that is administered by WTO. The TRIPS-treaty’s main objective is to enforce the rights for IP-right’s holder.
What is the right’s worth if the state’s don’t enforce the right’s? We also talked about Patent, Trade Mark, Design Protection and some other available protections within EU. One thing that I want you to study a little bit extra is the conflict between IP-Law and the free movement of goods in EU. The conflict is described in chapter 6.2 in the book EU Intellectual Property Law and Policy. We will come back to this question when we talk about Competition Law at the end of the course.

Late again, see you tomorrow morning 🙂

Best regards,

Hi again…..

In this lecture we focus on Berne Convention. Important to understand is that The Berne Convention is a frame work. Within that frame work you have national law in contracting states. When we compere Swedish Copyright Act and The Berne Convention we find that The Swedish Act sometimes gives the copyright holder better protection then The Berne Convention. This is allowed since the convention has minimum requirements, see art 19 in the convention.

It is getting late and I need to prepare for tomorrows lecture.

Good night and see you tomorrow 🙂
Best regards,

Hi again….

In this lecture I gave focus to The Swedish Copyright Act. It is important for you to understand that Conventions and EU Directives is not what you normally use when you solve a copyright infringement question. Normally you use national copyright law in the country were the infringement is taking place. For that reason we are studying Swedish Copyright Act as an example of national law based on Conventions and Directives. For the exam you do not need The Swedish Copyright Act. You will use Berne Convention instead. In next lecture we will focus on Berne Convention.

Best regards,

Hi again…

This Lecture was a little bit different from the rest since i decided to go through the case C-461/10 from ECJ very close.
The reason for that is that you will have to read several cases during the course and it is important for you to learn the history behind a case in ECJ and of course what happens after the judgement has been published. If you thought it was difficult to follow me on the lecture you can watch the movie from the lecture. The movie is now published on the homepage.

When it comes to the movies, remember that this course is not an e-learning course so all lectures will not be recorded so it is very important that you come to the lectures. It will be almost impossible to pass the exams if you don’t attend the lectures and the seminars.

Have a nice weekend 🙂
Best regards,
