Intellectual property law, in particular copyright, in the field of information technology, arouses real interest, especially under the conditions of this trying period that we are going through and where the use of information and information technology predominates. That is why, we have also rallied to this interest and consider that the presentation and analysis of some judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union answer the scientific questions and curiosities in this matter. In the field of intellectual and industrial property, we point out some decisions concerning copyright issues related in particular to electronic communications, the legal protection of computer programs, the harmonization of certain aspects of copyright and related rights. (A. M. Truichici, L. Neagu, 2017). For example, on June 9, 2016, in EGEDA and Others (C 470/14, EU: C: 2016: 418), the Court ruled on the fair compensation system provided for in Article 5 (2) (b) of Directive 2001/2969 and intended for authors in the case of a personal reproduction of their works by a natural person (https://curia.europa.eu/)
