Lopez, Xavier R.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v23 n6 p517-20 Nov 1997
Examines two multilateral approaches that aim to raise the level of intellectual property protection for databases. Discusses how both proposals, the European Union (EU) new Database Directive and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaty fail to provide ample copyright exemption provisions, necessary for offsetting the expanded scope of copyright protection.
