ECJ: Copyright directive, translated inadequately into Romanian legislation

The Luxembourg-based Court of Justice of the European Union ruled yesterday that the copyright directive had not been translated adequately into Romanian legislation. The decision comes in the context of the litigation between the Romanian authorities and the Globus Circus, concerning the right to publicly present musical works.

The provision in the Romanian copyright law which institutes a compulsory collective management of the right to present musical works before a public which attends live the said presentation occurs goes against EU regulations, ECJ ruled. The Court argues that the directive should be interpreted as referring exclusively to the dissemination of works to a public which does not attend the live presentation.
