Italy adopted the European Copyright Directive: it’s a missed opportunity for performers’ rights.

Italy adopted the European Copyright Directive without recognizing a fair remuneration for performers for streaming music. That’s a missed opportunity.
For more than two years, also through the European Payperformers campaign, we have asked the Italian institutions to implement the EU Directive recognizing a fair compensation paid directly to performers through their collective management organisations (CMO) by online platforms. Italian Parliament too had asked for a change, recognizing streaming rights to performers. Unfortunately, the Government has made different choices, deciding that the collection of streaming compensations still remains placed on record producers. Nothing has changed compared to the past.
ITSRIGHT will in any case undertake to implement immediately all the activities so that the principle that at least has been recognized to all performers towards their record producers is implemented: to receive a fair remuneration for streaming uses.
