Estudio sobre la remuneración de los autores de libros, artículos de revistas, traductores, periodistas y artistas visuales por el uso de sus trabajos
Commission study on remuneration of authors of books and scientific journals, translators, journalists and visual artists for the use of their works
European Commission, 30 septembre 2016
A new EU study looks at the remuneration paid to authors in the print sector in ten EU countries (United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Hungary and Denmark). The study was conducted to support policy-making in the area of copyright. The Commission is looking for evidence on whether, and to what extent, the differences that exist amongst the Member States' legislative frameworks affect levels of remuneration and the functioning of the internal market.
This study is a follow up to the study on the remuneration of authors in the music and audio-visual sector which was published in July 2015. The issue of authors' remuneration, and more broadly the copyright contracts establishing this remuneration, is largely governed by national laws of the Member States. The fair remuneration of individual creators – authors and performers – is part of the Commission's Digital Single Market Strategy. [+]
