PROTECTION OF NEIGHBOURING RIGHTS EXTENDED FROM 50 TO 70 YEARS.

The Legislative Decree n. 22 (21st February, 2014) was published today on the Official Journal. This decree implements the European Directive (2011/77 / EU), which extends the term of protection of neighbouring rights for sound recordings from 50 to 70 years.
The extension only relates to sound recordings, and not to audio-visual works.


The Directive introduces accompanying measures in cases where the performers have transferred their exclusive rights to record companies. In the case of a transfer in return for a one-off payment, the performer will have the right to obtain an annual supplementary remuneration corresponding to 20% of the revenue which the record company has derived from distribution, reproduction and making available of the music during the extended term of protection (between the 50th and 70th years). This right will be managed by collective management organisations such as Itsright.
