IGEL - RSS-Feed http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/feed de IMCO supports link tax – several MEPs did not attend the vote http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-06-08/imco-supports-link-tax-several-meps-did-not-attend-the-vote <p><body> <p> This morning, the European Parliament's Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) voted on the Copyright in the Digital Single Market directive (<a href="http://www.europarl.europa.eu/oeil/popups/ficheprocedure.do?reference=2016/0280(COD)&amp;l=en">2016/0280(COD)</a>) as the first of five committees. The outcome is of great significance to the other votes that are yet to come. Unfortunately, the ancillary copyright for press publishers is still very much alive.</p> <p> <strong>Link tax stays the same</strong></p> <p> The so-called DSM-directive was proposed by the European Commission in last year's September. For a few months now it has been and is still extensively discussed in several committees of the European Parliament. However, the various MEPs of the IMCO Committee could not agree on an own opinion in terms of the ancillary copyright for press publishers a.k.a. the link tax.</p> <p> Each and every of the 22 submitted amendments dealing with article 11 of the Commission's proposal – this article contains the ancillary copyright – were rejected. That was done despite the fact that Rapporteur MEP Catherine Stihler (S&amp;D) prepared a <a href="http://ancillarycopyright.eu/news/2017-02-24/european-parliament-committee-demands-abolish-ancillary-copyright">sound and balanced draft opinion</a> of the IMCO Committee. It was aimed at ditching article 11 completely and backed by every political group except the EPP. Nevertheless, Stihler's draft opinion was unfortunately not adopted with the result that the IMCO Committee now supports the introduction of a link tax almost exactly as the European Commission had proposed it.</p> <p> <strong>Little joy and plenty sorrow</strong></p> <p> Although article 11 itself remains as terrible as it has always been, a few other amendments have been adopted. The MEPs at least deleted the retroactive application of the ancillary copyright which was provided for by article 18. They also expanded the scope of the exception provision in recital 33 to now cover "acts of a computation referencing or indexing system such as hyperlinking".</p> <p> But that is enough with the good news. What the MEPs also agreed on was to change recital 31 so that it now heavily criticizes news aggregators and search engines for posing "a severe threat to the employment and fair remuneration of journalists and the future of media pluralism". A German regional court <a href="http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-02-19/leistungsschutzrecht-vor-landgericht-berlin-update">has already ruled</a> that the relation between search engines and publishers is a win-win-situation and publishing houses <a href="http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-10-07/verlage-zeigt-her-eure-klicks">have clarified</a> that they would profit from digital platforms. And what happens when they are forced to shut down <a href="http://ancillarycopyright.eu/news/2014-12-19/spanish-publishers-want-google-back-and-ask-help">could be watched in Spain</a> after the introduction of their link tax.</p> <p> Even more shockingly, due to the agreed on change of recital 32 the whole scope of article 11 gets extended to cover not only digital uses but also print. This is just absurd. If the publishers really only want to be enabled to more easily fight alleged massive online piracy, a mere <a href="http://ancillarycopyright.eu/news/2016-11-23/how-solve-only-specific-problem-press-publishers-copyright-without-ancillary-copyright">presumption of representation</a> would have been completely enough.</p> <p> <strong>How could this happen?</strong></p> <p> The IMCO Committee has a total of 40 members plus another 40 substitute members. Still, the voting result only lists 19 votes for, seven against and six abstentions. Luckily, MEP Pascal Arimont's (EPP) completely unreasonable "<a href="http://ancillarycopyright.eu/news/2017-05-31/alternative-compromise-could-hardly-be-worse">alternative compromise</a>" was not even put to vote as it did not find the necessary support. But there had been several amendments that could have been adopted if more MEPs were there. The complete left GUE/NGL group and half of the ECR group <a href="https://twitter.com/Senficon/status/872739139875196932">were missing</a>. They might have good reasons for their absence, but in many cases it has been a very tight vote so that the presence of only a few more members could have made the difference. However, the outcome clearly shows that much more work needs to be done to convince our representatives to not destroy the internet but to enact fair and reasonable rules for the good of the people of Europe.</p> <p></p></body></p> European Parliament IMCO directive draft opinion proposal vote Creative Commons Thu, 08 Jun 2017 19:06:15 +0000 Tom Hirche 2367 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info New paper discusses publisher's right – "unnecessary and dangerous" http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-06-01/new-paper-discusses-publishers-right-unnecessary-and-dangerous <p><body> <p> With the support of the Computer and Communications Industry Association (<a href="https://www.ccianet.org/">CCIA</a>), the European Policy Centre (<a href="http://www.epc.eu/">EPC</a>) has published a new <a href="http://www.epc.eu/documents/uploads/pub_7712_rewardingqualityjournalismordistortingthedsm.pdf">discussion paper</a> titled "Rewarding quality journalism or distorting the Digital Single Market? The case for and against neighbouring rights for press publishers". It is divided into an economy analysis (part I) and a legal analysis (part II).</p> <p> <strong>The economic goals will not be achieved</strong></p> <p> After specifying the Commission's motives for introducing a new publisher's right ("fairer marketplace", "value sharing", financing quality journalism etc.), the paper explains why the proposed goals will not be achieved. The examples from Germany and Spain showed that economic benefits had not been brought "to any of the actors involved (creators, publishers, search engines, news aggregators or users)." They also had not supported quality journalism and even had led to a reduction of competition, consumer "surpluses" and media plurality. Therefore, the authors fear a decrease of freedom of expression, media pluralism and incentives for investment in the media sector at EU level.</p> <p> It is also pointed out that the regulations in Germany and Spain have not been a "source of revenue for the industry". With that said "it would be a risky experiment to act at EU level in the hope of getting different results with a similar legislative instrument." This is why the authors recommend to consider economic measures instead of legal instruments like "reduced taxes (e.g. VAT) for the publishing sector."</p> <p> <strong>Confusion and uncertainty</strong></p> <p> The paper strongly criticizes that the draft proposal does not clarify the relation between the journalist's copyright and the publisher's new right. This would create "a risk that employees or freelance authors will lose their right to compensation. Is it really worth it?"</p> <p> Also unclear is the precise subject matter of the new right:</p> <blockquote><p> If we take the example of a commercial phonogram, it is easy to identify the producer's right (on the fixation of the sequence of sounds), the author's right (on the musical composition) and the performer's right (on the performance). But what about here? How can we distinguish between the author's right (i.e. the journalist's right) and/or the right (s)he transfers to the press publisher) from the neighbouring right part?</p> </blockquote> <p> In the end, the authors conclude that the publisher's right would threaten the future of online services which "would clearly have negative consequences for the pluralism of information" and consequently " might even reduce the economic benefits for all stakeholders involved."</p> <p></p></body></p> CCIA copyright paper Reform Creative Commons Thu, 01 Jun 2017 15:25:12 +0000 Tom Hirche 2366 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info The "Alternative Compromise" could hardly be worse http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-05-31/the-alternative-compromise-could-hardly-be-worse <p> In her just published&nbsp;<a href="https://juliareda.eu/2017/05/alternative-compromise/">blog post</a>, MEP Julia Reda (Greens/EFA) draws attention to the alarming developments within the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (<a href="http://www.europarl.europa.eu/committees/en/imco/home.html">IMCO</a>) Committee.
