Gestione collettiva dei diritti d’autore e dei diritti connessi e concessione di licenze multiterritoriali per i diritti su opere musicali per l’uso online nel mercato interno

AGCM, qui.

"L’Autorità ritiene che, in un contesto economico caratterizzato da profondi cambiamenti tecnologici, la mancata apertura del mercato nazionale della gestione dei diritti d’autore limita la libertà d’iniziativa economica degli operatori e la libertà di scelta degli utilizzatori. A suo parere, il mantenimento del monopolio legale appare in contrasto con l’obiettivo di rendere effettiva la libertà dei titolari del diritto di effettuare una scelta tra una pluralità di operatori in grado di competere con l’incumbent senza discriminazioni."

An Economic Policy Perspective on Online Platforms

B. Martens (JRC Science Hub), here.

"This report is based on the findings and conclusions that can be drawn from existing economic research literature and evidence; it does not present any new evidence. However, it is not meant to provide an exhaustive economic literature review on platforms; it focuses only on a limited number of issues that may be relevant from a regulatory policy perspective. It focuses on potential market failures in digital platforms and examines to what extent existing regulatory tools and self-regulation in platforms can address these failures, or whether there is a need for additional regulatory intervention."
