10 Nov – CREATORS’ RIGHTS IN THE DIGITAL LANDSCAPE | 10 Nov | London | 6.30pm
INSIGHT PAPER: “Making Available, Communication To The Public & User Interactivity” – considers the evolution of communication rights that overshadow conventional distribution and reproduction rights as music consumption increasingly shifts away from the ownership model of ‘sales’, towards access models of streaming services. http://bit.ly/MakingAvail2015
Aside from making four key recommendations, this paper presents a detailed study of a little understood right which is pivotal in determining creators’ royalty payments from digital platforms, and raises a central question as to whether technically speaking, rightsholders have actually obtained this right necessary in granting licenses to digital platforms.
