Abstract

The Internet and the proceeding digitalisation of content - such as music, videos and written texts - have led to profound and complex challenges in the field of Copyright Law, especially with regard to questions of enforcement as well as adequate compensation of right holders. In recent years, several alternative compensation schemes have been proposed, seeking to solve these issues. In Germany, the discussion still focuses on the so-called "cultural flatrate", that is, in a nutshell, a limitation to copyrights which would legalize sharing of content online. Every holder of a broadband connection to the Internet would have to pay a monthly fee which would be used to remunerate the right holders. This advisory opinion was compiled on behalf of the parliamentary group of the German political party "Bündnis 90/DIE GRÜNEN". The author comprehensively analyses the feasibility of the described alternative compensation scheme under German and European law, discussing both legal and economic obstacles and possible impacts based on a variety of different economic prerequisites.

Abstract

"Is the copyright law in the information society going to collapse or may a “cultural flatrate” produce relief? In view of the plentiful everyday occurrence of unauthorized and unpaid utilization of digital creative goods, the paper names the deficient situation of German and international copyright law regarding the different interests of copyright holders and users and presents possible perspectives.The legal classification and feasibility of lump-sum payment models that even in the political discussion apply to be an assumedly simple solution of the so-called digital dilemma is surveyed within the work. At the end, an ambitious but non-illusory vision of a European “cultural flatrate” is proposed.Dr. jur. Seyavash Amini has been a scholarship holder of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich, he founded the IVOCAT GmbH with focus on Intellectual Property Management in Hanover and works as legal advisor and entrepreneur."
