ABSTRACT
Freedom to link became an issue as early as 2014 when the European Court of Justice issued its first ruling in this regard. Due to the Directive 2001/29/EC doubts arose as to how linking could be understood as an act of public communication. However, the issue is still current and controversial, also due to the way it has been regulated and interpreted under European law. It should be noted that linking is an important activity not only in terms of copyright, but also falls within the scope of protection of freedom of expression. Therefore, it is crucial to discuss this issue from the perspective of these two aspects.
