ITSRIGHT welcomes the Antitrust Authority pro-competitive decision in
the neighbouring rights market.The Competition Authority has closed the
proceedings opened in 2016 against Nuovo Imaie for abusive conducts.
After a long investigation, the Authority has accepted the commitments
that now Nuovo Imaie will have to implement in order to guarantee an effective
fair competitive balance in the neighbouring rights market.International agreements are concerned too: collective management organisations’ deals
may now be terminated with a 30 days notice. Future deals’ duration will not go
beyond one-year; no automatic renewals permitted.
