RD305 - ETNO Reflection Document on the Online Commerce Roundtable Conclusions consultation

The overall licensing system in Europe is much more complex than the US as copyrighted content including music are directed to the country of residence. Against this background ETNO supports the promotion of competition between collecting societies on the market for rights management. Furthermore, regulation for multi-territory licensing should be harmonised for all types of content, not only for music. In general, it is essential that licensing solutions are adapted to the online environment.

  • ETNO welcomes the possibility to contribute to the discussions on the opportunities and barriers to increased on-line retailing in Europe to foster the growth of creative content online.
  • As highlighted in the report, the overall licensing system in Europe is much more complex than the US as copyrighted content including music are directed to the country of residence.
  • Against this background ETNO supports the promotion of competition between collecting societies on the market for rights management. Each collecting society should be able to grant multi-territorial licenses on the basis of improved reciprocal agreements between the collecting societies.
  • Furthermore, regulation for multi-territory licensing should be harmonised for all types of content, not only for music.
  • It is essential that licensing solutions are adapted to the online environment.
