President Gašparovič returns amended law on copyright to parliament

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič refused to sign into law changes to the copyright rules regulating the intellectual property rights.

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič refused to sign into law changes to the copyright rules regulating the intellectual property rights.

Thus, the amendment will be returned to the parliament for a renewed debate, the daily Sme wrote in its Friday issue. Gašparovič cited the “unsubstantiated” protection of newspapers as a whole within the law on intellectual property as the reason, calling on lawmakers to omit newspapers from the draft bill.
