Collective Management of Copyright and Multi-territorial Licensing of rights in online music works

The
Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) and the Commerce Department
(CD), Ministry for Fair Competition, Small Business and Consumers (MFCC) will
be holding a consultation session on the Proposal for a Directive of the
European Parliament and of the Council on collective management of copyright
and related rights and multi-territorial licensing of rights in musical works
for online uses in the internal market [COM(2012) 372].

The
objective of the proposal is to put in place a better legal framework for the
collective management of rights that are administered by collecting societies
on behalf of right-holders such as authors, performers, producers etc. It will
provide for rules to improve the standards of governance, transparency and
financial management of all collecting societies, thus improving the management
of revenues collected on behalf of the right-holders (creators) as well as
enhancing the co-operation between collecting societies across the EU. It will
also set minimum standards, adapted to the digital world, for collecting
societies' multi-territorial licensing of authors' rights in musical works used
for the provision of online services, which allows for improved and simpler
cross-border licensing.

The
consultation session will be held on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, between 2:00pm
and 3:00pm, at the Multipurpose Hall, Education Department, Beltissebħ,
Floriana.
