The State Council (SC) of China has published a new draft text of the long-awaited revised Copyright Law and IFRRO, in consultation with our Chinese members CWWCS and MCSC, has submitted comments to the Legislative Affairs Office of the State Council. We have also sent our comments to the European Commission (DG Trade).

The IFRRO comments are available here (in English); and here (in a Chinese convenience translation, kindly provided by Copyright Agency).

India - IFRRO comments on proposed amendments to the Indian Copyright Law
Submitted by James on Mon, 09/08/2010 - 07:56

IFRRO has submitted comments on proposed amendments to the Indian Copyright Law, which would allow only Collective Management Organisations (CMOs) set up by authors. 

The amendments have been described as bringing the 1957 Indian Copyright Act in line with the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT).  However IFRRO's comments point out that the restriction of the right to set up CMOs to authors is "contrary to the development of collective management societies as expressly requested internationally, for instance, by the European Commission, and also to the actual situation of collective management of text and image based works through RROs worldwide".
