About the course

Today's digital technology makes global copying and distribution of texts easy, fast and inexpensive. Copyright law is adapted to this development. During the module, candidates learn how to identify problems arising out of the new requirements and how to deal with them. Energy laws govern the use and taxation of energy, both renewable and nonrenewable. Energy law involves innumerable aspects of international business law and is therefore a must for business lawyers and for managers.
