New IFRRO blog, COLEGIS – COpyright LEGal ISsues

Submitted by jboyd on Fri, 03/13/2015 - 17:30

At the last Legal Issues Forum (LIF) meeting in October 2014, there was a request by IFRRO members to establish an IFRRO blog on copyright legislation and court cases.

Against this background, we established this IFRRO blog, COLEGIS – COpyright LEGal ISsues ( – as a service for communication between IFRRO and IFRRO members wishing to provide and share up-to-date information on legislative initiatives, litigation, theory and practice, etc., with respect to copyright and collective management.

We hope that COLEGIS will increase the availability of information, encourage a healthy debate on legal matters affecting IFRRO members, and that many IFRRO members will make use of this opportunity to post information on legal issues related to copyright to this blog.

In order to comply with the legal requirements, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted with this IFRRO blog. We would therefore kindly ask all contributors to this blog to please respect the IFRRO Blogging Rules and Guidelines (Blogging Rules).

IFRRO’s General Counsel has overall responsibility for COLEGIS. In case of any questions or comments, please contact Anita Huss-Ekerhult by e-mail at:
