UK: Draft Copyright and Rights in Performances Regulations 2014

Source: House of Lords Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee (UK)

From Summary:

These draft Regulations update the framework of exceptions to copyright and rights in performances, expanding the freedoms in copyright law that allow third parties to use copyright works (such as text, film or music) for a variety of economically and socially valuable purposes, without permission from copyright owners. The Government consider that the changes contain safeguards to ensure that a reasonable balance is maintained between the interests of creators, owners, performers, consumers and users of copyright works.

There is considerable interest in the proposed changes, both inside the House, as manifested in a Grand Committee debate on 5 December 2013, and among external groups, as shown by written submissions to this Committee....

We see the changes proposed in the Regulations as undoubtedly significant, for example in their positive potential for the research sector, and in their negative potential, conversely, for rights-holders in the music sector and elsewhere. BIS [Department for Business, Innovation and Skills] states in the Explanatory Memorandum that the instruments are to be reviewed by the Intellectual Property Office no later than April 2019.
