"Dr Karapapa's Private Copying is a timely publication which emerged from the author's PhD thesis. [...] the book provides a thoughtful and engaging analysis of the various issues surrounding this copyright exception or limitation." Eleonora Rosati, European Intellectual Property Review
"Private Copying, with its original, purely European approach, constitutes a valuable contribution to a pan-European discussion on the topic of private copying for various reasons. First, it is a rich source of references to national regulations and case law. Moreover, one of the main advantages of this book is that it offers a thorough academic analysis of the topic in a concise and easy-to-read fashion. In addition, the presentation of the topic remains attached to real-life problems related to private copying" Theodoros Chiou, International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law "Private Copying provides a brilliant analysis of the unresolved discourse, [...] The author offers a fresh perspective to the debate over private copying in light of the advent of digital copying and online dissemination methods" Gaetano Dimita, Queen Mary Journal of Intellectual Property
