The protection of copyright from infringements taking place via the Internet has been in Greece until today extremely inefficient and time-consuming.
Legal experts and copyright holders hope that this situation will alter soon. On July 2017, a new Copyright Law 4481/2017 was adopted amending the existing Copyright Law 2121/1993. The new Law provides dispositions aiming to regulate for the first time in Greece this kind of situations. To be more specific, a new article to Law 2121/1993 (article 66E) is added, which aims to enhance the protection of copyright and related rights on the Internet via a “notice and takedown procedure”.
