Supreme Court bans niqab
Mag. Jakob Widner, ILO Newsletter vom 28. September 2016

The Supreme Court recently ruled that the wearing of a niqab need not be tolerated by an employer because, although religious dress is protected under anti-discrimination legislation, it is one of the basic rules of interpersonal communication that facial expressions be visible. Further, although an employer´s prohibition on religious dress amounts to direct religious discrimination, this ban can be justified as an occupational requirement.

Copyright owners beware! Supreme Court judgment defines author´s distribution rights anew
Dr. Claudia Csáky, ILO Newsletter vom 19. September 2016

In light of a European Court of Justice ruling, the Supreme Court recently overturned its earlier interpretation of an author´s exclusive distribution right in relation to his or her work of art. The court found that any kind of distribution - regardless of whether it is a transfer of ownership - falls under the author´s exclusive distribution right. Further, it held that this distribution right is violated only if ownership in the work is actually transferred.

In der Praxis bereitet die Frage, wann ein solches „Ein- oder Zweiobjekthaus" vorliegt, immer wieder Schwierigkeiten.
