Consultation Session: Rights is 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.
