Evaluation of the Act on oversight and dispute resolution for collective management organisations

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

On July 1st 2013 a bill was signed into law amending the Act on oversight and dispute resolution for collective management organisations in copyright and related rights, to broaden and strengthen the oversight of collective management organisations (CMOs). As in the previous law, the Dutch copyright board (CvTA) was assigned oversight of the collective management of copyright and the timely and just distribution of funds by CBOs. CMOs collectively collect licencing fees from end-users and/or distribute funds to the holders of copyright and related rights, such as authors, performers, producers and publishers. The main motivation behind the law of 2013 was the impression that the oversight of CMO’s was not functioning properly, that tariffs and contracting practices were not sufficiently transparent and that unnecessary tensions existed between CMOs and end-users. The main objective of law of %&$' is therefore to strengthen the transparent and efficient functioning of the CMOs , benefiting both end-users and copyrights holders.
