Common Position on the Framework Directive on Collective Rights Management
Major copyright users welcome initiative to address Collective Rights Management in view of a proposal for a framework Directive on Collective Rights Management in 2011.
Pearle*, among other major copyright users, fully supports the Commission's view that facilitation of effective rights management is crucial to the proper functioning of the Internal Market. All rights users believe that more needs to be done to improve and modernise collective management of copyright in the European Union. Failure to do so would prevent rights users from playing our full role in delivering the potential of the EU’s strategy for more growth and jobs.
