Mandatory collective exercise of rights
In the cases provided for in subsection 70 (3) of the Copyright Act, authors and their rights holders cannot exercise their rights individually, but it is mandatory for them to exercise these rights only through a collective management organisation. These cases concern receipt of compensation, i.e. the fair remuneration, meant for authors. Also the areas where users offer a wide variety of works to the public and where obtaining licences for the use of all works is too burdensome for them, and the legislator has therefore considered it necessary to make it easier to obtain licences in the respective area.
The EAÜ is a collective management organisation through which authors and their rights holders can perform the mandatory exercise of their rights in the following cases:
|Provision of law||Description of the case, i.e. the respective right|
|the right to permit and prohibit the retransmission and live broadcasting of works included in television and radio programmes, and to receive appropriate remuneration for this|
|§ 14 lg 6||the right to receive fair remuneration for the use of an audiovisual work if the author has transferred (assigned) their economic rights to the producer of the audiovisual work|
|§ 15||the right to receive fair remuneration for the resale of an original work of art|
|§ 27||the right to receive fair remuneration for the reproduction of works for personal needs|
