Authors, individual and corporate, are routinely compensated for the use by
others of copyrighted material. Yet relatively little attention is paid to the
vast and complex system of collective management that underlies these payments
capital flows that amount to ten billion euros each year.
This book the first detailed analysis of the subject available in English
provides an in-depth perspective on collective management of copyright and
related rights and the legal framework within which this management operates.
Among the salient aspects of the presentation are the following:
description of the organizations that provide collective management services;
suggestions how collective management can be made more efficient in the
Internet age
the effect of WIPO Copyright Treaties and the TRIPS Agreement;
the emerging intersection of copyright management and human rights;
recent developments at the European Union level; and
particular analysis of the situation in various countries, including France,
Germany, the UK and Ireland, the Nordic countries, Australia, Canada, and
Japan, as well as general discussions relating to Asia and Latin America.
With its detailed emphasis on how collective management operates in different
cultural, legal and economic environments and its many insights about the
future of collective management, this book is indispensable for copyright
lawyers, scholars, researchers, policy makers and decision makers working with
or within collective management organizations, including authors, performers,
rights holders, and users of copyright material.
The book was edited by Prof. Daniel Gervais of the University of
Ottawa, a renowned expert and author in the field of international copyright
and collective management. Dr. Gervais was successively Legal Officer at the
GATT/WTO, Head of Section at the World Intellectual Property Organization
(WIPO), Assistant Secretary General of the International Confederation of
Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and Vice-President of Copyright
Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC). Dr. Gervais also authored the introductory
chapter. Other contributors include (in alphabetical order): Mario
Bouchard, General Counsel of the Copyright Board of Canada;
Dr. Mihly Ficsor, former Assistant Director General of WIPO and
author of the WIPO Guide to Collective Administration of Copyright and Related
Rights; Prof. Lucie Guibault (University of Amsterdam);
Prof. Lawrence Helfer (Vanderbilt University); Tarja
Koskinen-Olsson, who served as Chair of the International Federation
of Reproduction Rights Organizations (IFRRO) from 1993 to 1999 and is now
Honorary President of IFRRO; Prof. Glynn Lunney (Tulane
University); Prof. Okumura (Kyoto University); Karina
Correa Pereira, LL.M. (Brazil); Nathalie Piaskowski, LL.M.
