PhD Thesis

Marianna's research is provisionally titled "Fair remuneration of literary authors in the United Kingdom".

The research proposes to look into fair remuneration of literary authors in the context of the "principle of appropriate and proportionate remuneration" under Article 18 of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (DSMD). The thesis will also consider the relationship between Article 18 and Articles 19-23 (the so-called "transparency triangle").
