Creative Content Online
The availablity of creative content from the live performance sector online raises new challenges for copyright management. The main challenges for the performing arts sector, across all areas of applications, are very much to be situated in the legal environment of the rights management.
In its position papers concerning creative content online, Pearle* concentrates on the obstacles to fully take benefit of the possibilities that creative content online could offer. The mechanism of rights clearance is ill-adapted to the emerging possibilities for artistic content and is a hindrance to support the performing art as a creative industry, making it a major competitive disadvantage.
Simplification of copyright legislation, efficiency and transparency of the rights clearance process is essential to create a digital single market for the online distribution of creative content and audiovisual works. Therefore, Pearle* calls upon the Commission to review Copyright Management in Europe.
