EU Plans Online Copyright Licence
Saturday, January 1, 2005
Creators of online music services such as composers, lyricists and performers would be able to secure a single pan-European copyright licence for the first time under proposals tabled yesterday by the European commission. Artists must currently secure copyrights in each of the union's 25 member nations, with each country requiring separate copyrights in order to transmit songs over the net.
