Orphan Works Survey 2017, Summary report

European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights

In total 120 institutions and individuals contributed to the Orphan Works Survey 2017, with input received from 26 countries (25 EU Member States and 1 EEA country).

The results show that users are largely satisfied with the overall experience of using the Orphan Works Database. Technical and legal challenges exist mainly in the area of diligent search requirements which are perceived as too complex and as rendering the system unsuitable for mass digitisation. A lack of human and financial resources is a challenge for Beneficiary Organisations in the digitisation process. Significant disparity exists in the standards for data retention and transfer being used by Beneficiary Organisations. Competent National Authorities appear to be aware of the challenges faced by Beneficiary Organisations using the Orphan Works system. The concept of digitisation of orphan works from the Beneficiary Organisations and Competent National Authorities perspective is sound and has a future, albeit with some legal and technical adjustments. Some Other Stakeholders see Orphan Works as not having achieved its aims conceptually. In general, stakeholders give high importance to the ongoing developments of the Orphan Works system and its future success....Moins

Deposit systems for audiovisual works

Today, deposit systems frequently serve national policy ends by ensuring the preservation of a country’s cultural heritage. In addition, they also play an important role in some countries by helping right(s) holders to establish proof of ownership of copyright: they provide more legal certainty, in particular where the anteriority of authorship or the priority of a claim to a title must be resolved in a trial. It was established long ago under international law that the enjoyment and the exercise of copyright shall not be subject to any formality. It is, however, also commonly acknowledged that certain national rules of evidence or procedures linked to deposit applicable to court proceedings facilitate in practice the enforcement of copyright and may be considered in line with this principle. This publication provides an overview of the regulatory framework concerning deposit systems....Moins

It was envisaged that the study would be divided into two phases: The Phase 1 report was published in July 2016 and is available on the EUIPO website. The Phase 2 highlights the abuse of the domain names system by those who infringe intellectual property rights and stresses the need to involve as wide a range of authorities as possible to cooperate in the fight against those abuses. The four studied Member States are Spain, Sweden, Germany and the UK. The report is based on in-depth research of the country code top level domains (ccTLD) of the four chosen Member States to detect how often e-shops suspected of marketing trade mark infringing products are utilizing previously-used domain names....Moins

Inter-Agency Cooperation at National and International Level

European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights

Inter-agency cooperation in IPR enforcement can produce a number of benefits. It can produce savings in existing resources and help avoid wasting resources in the future. It can improve communication ...Plus Inter-agency cooperation in IPR enforcement can produce a number of benefits. It can produce savings in existing resources and help avoid wasting resources in the future. It can improve communication between agencies and help build a team spirit that makes their activities more effective and efficient. Improvement in effectiveness and efficiency lead to resource savings. Proper coordination will also avoid overlaps in activities. There is little point, for example, in two or more agencies directing the same or similar awareness campaigns at the same audience. Worse still would be directing campaigns at the same audience but delivering diverging messages. Cooperation also has the potential for more easily identifying gaps in enforcement programmes and activities. On the other hand, the creation or continued existence of inter-agency cooperation is not a magic wand: it does not solve all problems. It is one of a number of things that has the potential to improve enforcement. From the responses to the questionnaire and the known differences between the legal and administrative culture in the various Member States it is also clear that there is no one-size-fits-all formula for inter-agency cooperation....Moins
