The CJEU rules on the embedding of third party works in a website by means of the technique of framing

10/03/2021

This Legal Briefing analyses the main aspects of this new CJEU judgment.

The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled in its judgment in Case C-392/19 that embedding, by means of the technique of framing, in a webpage of copyright-protected works that are freely available to the public with the authorisation of the copyright holder on other websites constitutes a communication to the public. In particular, the CJEU states that for such embedding to constitute a communication to the public, the measures adopted or imposed by that copyright holder to provide protection from framing must have been circumvented.
