Commission seeks views on neighbouring rights and panorama exception in EU copyright

Have your say on the possible extension to publishers of the neighbouring rights currently granted, for example to broadcasters or producers of someone else's copyrighted material. We would also welcome your views on the panorama exception, which concerns the use made of images depicting buildings, sculptures and monuments. The Commission wants to hear from everyone interested in the publishing sector and the digital economy such as authors, researchers, publishers, online service providers and others in the creative industries.

Public consultation on the role of publishers in the copyright value chain and on the 'panorama exception'

The Commission is launching a public consultation on the role of publishers in the copyright value chain and on the 'panorama exception'. It will serve to gather views in particular on the impact that granting an EU neighbouring right to publishers could have on the publishing sector, on citizens and creative industries and as to whether the need (or not) for intervention is different in the press as compared to other publishing sectors. The consultation will also serve to collect input for the Commission's analysis of the current legislative framework of the 'panorama exception'.
