Marcella Favale: “A Wii too stretched? DRM protection of game consoles”

Faculty Seminar of Marcella Favale

This seminar comments the case C-355/12 – Nintendo v. PC Box.  Despite the fact that the difficult conditions imposed by the Court in practice will disrupt the implementation of DRM​, Marcella Favale questions the extension of the protection of TPMs implemented on gaming consoles. She also argues that there are important gaps in the reasoning of the Court, resulting in a less than satisfactory motivation for the ruling.
