Copyright Law in Turkey Key Development and Predictions 2022

In the report, we outline eight controversial issues that we often encounter in Turkish copyright Law.

2021 was a year when the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on business began to disappear. Curfews and travel restrictions were lifted, while practices such as remote working and online meetings continued, business life returned to normal as much as possible.

On the other hand, a very rapid digital transformation is continuously experienced in almost every field in our country and the rest of the world. Since the beginning of 2021, the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) concept has rapidly entered our lives. With the digitalising world, copyright ownership on products created by artificial intelligence and the responsibility of hosting providers for copyright violations on the internet has gained significant importance.

While Copyright Law seeks solutions to new problems that arise with technological developments, the developments in traditional fields also continue.

This document is a compilation of the issues that emerged from the developments in the past year and the developments in the main issues related to copyright law which we consider essential for copyright owners.
