Leak: Impact Assessment on the modernisation of EU copyright rules

StateWatch, here.

(Pity the annexes are missing).

"...stakeholders also underline a risk that introducing the COO (country of origin, WB) rule for online transmissions will weaken territorial licensing of rights (or even lead to mandatory pan-European licensing). They argue that the establishment of the COO rule in combination with the application of the free movement of services principle and competition law would have a detrimental effect on territorial licensing. As it is not possible to predict potential future effect that the application of the free movement of services principle and competition law may have on territorial licensing of rights, this IA does not assess impacts that the proposed intervention may have in combination with these rules".
