Re:Marks on Copyright and Trademark

Copyright period for performers and musicians extended by 20 years

Repost from SPORTS, MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT ONLINE

By Mary Mullen

1 November 2013 sees the Copyright and Duration of Rights in Performance Regulation 2013 come into force. The UK Law implements EU Directive 2011/77/EU which extends the term of copyright for artists who perform in recordings from 50 to 70 years.

See our previous Sport Media and Entertainment Online report on the passage of the Regulation through the consultation process and our outline of how it will affect the existing position.
