Online music services

On Tuesday the Legal Affairs MEPs endorsed the new rules on copyrights that make it easier for online providers to obtain copyright licenses to stream music cross-border. This could be achieved by allowing online providers to obtain these licenses from a small number of authors’ collective management organizations  that operate across EU borders, instead of forcing them to obtain separate licenses from national organizations in every Member State they provide services to. The aim is that EU-wide online music services are made available to consumers, while at the same time music authors rights and their royalties are protected.
