Protecting music, not markets: the conflict between copyright collecting societies and single market aims

Benjamin Farrand

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the current case law relating to the activities of collecting societies, music licensing organisations which purport to protect the interests of creators. However, collecting societies act in ways which are detrimental to the further integration of the market for intellectual property goods, in particular raising concerns under competition and free movement regimes. With proposed reform at the EU level faltering, we should ask whether collecting societies fulfil an essential service to musicians, or whether the extension of national monopolies to the online environment should be carefully scrutinised.
