EU flagThe Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) yesterday handed down its much anticipated Meltwater  decision (Case C-360/13 Public Relations Consultants Association v Newspaper Licensing Agency and Others).

The CJEU ruling follows a referral from the UK’s Supreme Court and related to whether cached copies and on-screen copies of websites that are generated in the course of browsing may be made without the authorisation of copyright holders. Here at IPcopy we’ve taken some time to look over the decision to bring you our in-depth review.
