Harmonisation & extension of term
In 2008 and 2009, the Commission initiated two proposals concerning copyright. The first proposal concerned the harmonization of term of calculation of co-written works. The second initiative aimed to extend the term of copyright protection for European performers. Both proposals were rejected by Pearle* and other related trade associations. They would not form a solution for an existing problem, but rather create new problems by itself. The links to the related position papers can be found below.
