IGEL - RSS-Feed http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/feed de New tariff will kill Spanish aggregators http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-02-09/new-tariff-will-kill-spanish-aggregators <p><body> <p> Within the last couple of months, it has been very quiet about the Spanish link tax which aims to charge content aggregators a fee if they publish snippets of a news article. As a consequence, after this law was passed, Google News Spain, the main target of this measure, was shut down in 2014. But now the Spanish Reproduction Rights Centre (<a href="http://www.cedro.org/english">CEDRO</a>) has initiated a new round of negotiations with several affected online services. The figures they ask for are shocking.</p> <p> For each "active user", CEDRO wants to charge about five cents per day, according to their tariff (<a href="http://www.cedro.org/docs/default-source/0tarifas/tarifas.pdf">p. 24</a>)! An active user is defined as someone "who uses the service at least once a day, regardless of the number of times the service is accessed every day." One does not have to be very good at math to understand with what tremendous numbers aggregators are faced with.</p> <p> <a href="https://twitter.com/dseijo?lang=en">Daniel Seijo</a>, CEO of the Spanish social news website <a href="https://www.meneame.net/">Menéame</a>, <a href="http://www.elconfidencial.com/tecnologia/2017-02-07/canon-aede-meneame-internet-facebook-agregadores_1327333/">explained</a> that the platform had an average of 139.000 unique users per day in 2016. "If we applied the CEDRO-rate, we would have to pay more than 7,000 euros a day, that would be 2.56 million euros a year. We had a turnover of 125,000 euros. We would have to close", Seijo said. This clearly shows how disproportionate the tariff is and how valuable the services by the aggregators to the publishers actually are.</p> <p> Furthermore, it remains highly unclear how the fee had been calculated. Why does it refer to active users? Why not per month instead of per day? Why five cents? A <a href="http://www.elconfidencial.com/tecnologia/2017-02-07/canon-aede-meneame-internet-facebook-agregadores_1327333/">CEDRO spokesperson said</a> that "we have calculated [the fee] according to the law, carrying out the relevant studies and presenting them to the Ministry of Culture." So far, a document that shows this process has not been presented.</p> <p> Although Menéame has not yet been contacted by CEDRO, the company is faced with "enormous legal uncertainty" which would also prevent new competitors from entering the market, Seijo warns.</p> <p></p></body></p> CEDRO Menéame Snippet Spain tariff Creative Commons Thu, 09 Feb 2017 07:37:20 +0000 Tom Hirche 2345 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info German District Court considers ancillary copyright null and void http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-02-08/german-district-court-considers-ancillary-copyright-null-and-void <p><body> <p> In an oral hearing at the district court of Berlin on Tuesday, the presiding judge held that the German ancillary copyright (ac) had to be notified by the German Government. If the court clings to this assessment the German ac could be declared ineffective, null and void.</p> <p> <strong>It’s all about money</strong></p> <p> Yesterday’s hearing was part of a lawsuit between the German collecting society VG Media and Google. The VG media manages the ac for a number of German publishers. The VG Media claims, inter alia, remuneration and damages for the use of snippets and thumbnails in Google News and Google Search. Almost all decisive aspects regarding these claims are disputed. The core question is, whether the snippets (and thumbnails) that Google’s search services display can be considered as “individual words or the smallest of text excerpts”. In this case their use would be exempted according to <a href="https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/englisch_urhg/englisch_urhg.html#p0573">Art. 87f German Copyright Act</a> (UrhG), hence would not be subject to licensing or remuneration obligations.</p> <p> <strong>No valid law no claims</strong></p> <p> Now it seems that all these details might turn out irrelevant. The district court suggested that the German government had to notify the ancillary copyright prior to its enactment according to the EU directive 98/48/EC. To put it simply, the directive obligates the member states to notify national legislation that relates to technical regulation for Information Society services. If a national government fails to notify, the law is not valid and cannot be executed or enforced.</p> <p> <strong>Notification duty for the ac controversial</strong></p> <p> Whether or not the German ac was actually subject to the notification duty under directive 98/48/EC is disputed. However, the Berlin district court deems the obligation applicable. If it clings to this opinion, it could a) reject the legal action of the VG Media for this reason alone or b) refer the question to the European Court of Justice (ECJ). In the latter case the German proceedings would be suspended until the ECJ decides. This could take years.</p> <p> The Berlin court announced its verdict for May 9, 2017. Then we will see if the publishers suffer another historic defeat on their quest to enforce the ancillary copyright in Germany. </p> <p></p></body></p> District Court of Berlin Google VG Media directive 98/48/EC Enforceability notification duty remuneration Creative Commons Wed, 08 Feb 2017 11:50:52 +0000 Till Kreutzer 2344 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Landgericht Berlin hält das LSR für unwirksam http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-02-07/landgericht-berlin-h-lt-das-lsr-f-r-unwirksam <p align="left"> Die heutige mündliche Verhandlung vor dem Landgericht in Sachen VG Media gegen Google begann mit einem Paukenschlag: Nach dem vorsitzenden Richter Scholz neigt die Kammer zu der Annahme, dass die Bundesregierung das deutsche LSR bei der EU hätte notifizieren müssen.

It is very carefully written and pays special attention to the freedom of expression, the special effects on authors and open data/science.</p> <p> In order to introduce a new exclusive right, market failure must be given. Van Eechoud correctly works and points out that this is a "highly contested" issue regarding the relationship between news publishers and news aggregators/search engines. Although the proposed publisher's right "would potentially cover all other domains where periodical publications are a form of communication, e.g., professional, business, educational, and government publications", the European Commission had not explained "why all of these domains experience market failure justifying regulatory intervention."</p> <p> Van Eechoud is at least surprised by the European Commission's "expectation that the new right would have a positive impact on freedom of expression" and reminds the organ to "ensure any legislative intervention conforms to the standards of article 10 ECHR and 11 CFR." The proposed protection term of 20 years is qualified as "grossly disproportionate".</p> <p> Furthermore, van Eechoud criticises that the publisher's right "would go beyond existing copyright and database rights" as even the "smallest uses" of text would be covert by it due to missing restrictions which might consequently "backfire on journalists and the press as users of information." If the new right shall only solve problems connected with copyright enforcement, then it "seems disproportionate, especially in light of the absence of any data on the scope of the problem."</p> <p> Due to the proposed right currently also extending to "periodicals published by public sector bodies", van Eechoud recommends to exclude them from the proposal and that "a similar clear exclusion should be made for academic and scientific publications."</p> <p></p></body></p> Mireille can Eechoud OpenForum Europe copyright Europe freedom of expression open data proposal Reform study Creative Commons Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:14:56 +0000 Tom Hirche 2343 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Snippets not only may but will be illegal http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2017-01-16/snippets-not-only-may-but-will-be-illegal <p><body> <p> Last week, the European People's Party (EPP) Group in the European Parliament held an event labelled "<a href="http://www.eppgroup.eu/event/Hearing-on-Copyright">Hearing on Copyright</a>". One of the speakers was <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/giuseppe-abbamonte">Giuseppe Abbamonte</a>, the Commission's director of media policy at the DG CONNECT, who said that we might all act illegally when we share articles, as <a href="http://www.politico.eu/pro/tweeting-journalism-could-breach-copyright-says-commission-official/">reported by Chris Spillane</a> from POLITICO.</p> <p> Answering a question by <a href="http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/124968/THERESE_COMODINI+CACHIA_home.html">Therese Comodine Cachia</a> (MEP/EPP), member of the Committee on Legal Affairs (<a href="http://www.europarl.europa.eu/committees/en/juri/home.html">JURI</a>) where she serves as the Parliament's rapporteur for copyright, Abbamonte said while sharing a mere hyperlink would not be a breach of copyright, an accompanying snippet from the linked article may be:</p> <blockquote><p> "If someone reproduces or shares [...] an abstract of a work which repeats the creative effort made by the author, then this person or entity [...] may be required to get authorization or may make a payment."</p> </blockquote> <p> Abbamonte is said to have cited the European Court of Justice's (ECJ) case "Infopaq" (<a href="http://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf;jsessionid=9ea7d2dc30d5138251e6a504407d9772d3ac54fab314.e34KaxiLc3qMb40Rch0SaxyKbNv0?text=&amp;docid=72482&amp;pageIndex=0&amp;doclang=EN&amp;mode=lst&amp;dir=&amp;occ=first&amp;part=1&amp;cid=35128">C-5/08</a>) where it was ruled that the extraction of 11 words from a copyright protected work can already be a violation of the author's rights.</p> <p> So what Abbamonte, a European Commission official, did was (1) pointing out that sharing a link over Twitter, Facebook etc. together with a short snippet consisting of 11 words or more would infringe on an author's copyright and (2) creating the impression that – as this has been the situation since the above mentioned ruling from 2009 – nothing will change with the new proposed publisher's right.</p> <p> But this is not true. First, even sharing a snippet of 20, 30 or more words can be legal due to the right to quote. And second, the proposal of the publisher's right goes much further as it protects the investment made by the publisher. But the investment literally went into every single word of the article. Consequently, every single word of ot will be protected under the current proposal so that the sharing of even less than 11 words not only may but will infringe on the (proposed) publisher's right. Nowhere does it say in the proposal that private users in general or the sharing of a certain amount of words are exempt from this regulation.</p> <p></p></body></p> EPP European Commission copyright Europe proposal Reform Snippet Creative Commons Mon, 16 Jan 2017 06:19:56 +0000 Tom Hirche 2341 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Ansip übernimmt Oettingers Aufgaben http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-12-23/ansip-bernimmt-oettingers-aufgaben <p> Ende Oktober 2016 wurde bekannt, dass EU-Kommissar Günther Oettinger neuer EU-Haushaltskommissar werden soll.

They advise the UK Government to oppose this proposal for various reasons.</p> <p> One is, that the publishers' expectation to increase their income is only "based upon wishful-thinking" as the experience with similar laws in Germany and Spain, where no additional income has been yielded, would clearly show.</p> <p> Then, the Commission had failed to consider other options to reduce impediments to simplify enforcement like an "amendment of Article 5 of the EC Enforcement Directive, to create a presumption that a press publisher is entitled to bring proceedings to enforce the copyright in any article or other item appearing in a journal of which it is the identified publisher."</p> <p> Furthermore, the Commission has overlooked that publishers' investments are already protected by the database right under Directive 96/9/EC. Also overlooked have been the additional costs such a right would cause especially to those operators who do not want to make use of their new right but who have to amend their (open-access) licenses.</p> <p> Due to the lengthy duration of this right (20 years) the "social costs associated with the proposed experiment will be unnecessarily high."</p> <p> The "poorly drafted" subject matter of the proposed right would diminish legal certainty because the definition of "press publication" would not only include print newspapers but also fanzines, action catalogues, blogs as well as the <em>Rough Guide to Peru </em>amongst others. The signees also point out other uncertainties.</p> <p> In their eyes, <strong>"the proposed right is unnecessary, undesirable, would introduce an unacceptable level of uncertainty and be unlikely to achieve anything apart from adding to the complexity and cost of operating in the copyright environment."</strong></p> <p></p></body></p> UK IPO Commission copyright Europe proposal Reform Creative Commons Sat, 17 Dec 2016 10:38:23 +0000 Tom Hirche 2340 at http://leistungsschutzrecht.info Berlin state government against ancillary copyright for press publishers http://leistungsschutzrecht.info/news/2016-12-13/berlin-state-government-against-ancillary-copyright-for-press-publishers <p> The three regional party associations of&nbsp;SPD, Die Linken and Bündnis 90/Die Grünen, who will build the new government of the state of Berlin, have signed the <a href="http://www.rbb-online.de/politik/wahl/berlin/agh/koalitionsvertrag-berlin-spd-gruene-linke.html">coalition agreement</a> for the next legislative period (2016-2021).
