Remuneration of authors and performers for the use of their works and the fixations of their performances

This study was carried out for the European Commission by

Europe Economics and Lucie Guibault, Olivia Salamanca and Stef van Gompel of the University of Amsterdam

Abstract

This study analyses the current situation regarding the level of remuneration paid to authors and performers in the music and audio-visual sectors. We compare, from both a legal and economic perspective, the existing national systems of remuneration for authors and performers and identify the relative advantages and disadvantages of those systems for them. We also explore the need to harmonise mechanisms affecting the remuneration of authors and performers, and to identify which ones are the best suited to achieve this. Their potential impact on distribution models and on the functioning of the Internal Market is also examined. Finally, the study outlines a series of policy recommendations based on the analysis conducted.
