Annual report published on the monitoring of organisations for collective management of copyright
The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH), which monitors organisations for the collective management of copyright, has published its second annual report on monitoring issues.
Pending monitoring cases at the PRH relate to the procedure of the collective management organisations when the rightholder seeks for remuneration for lending, transfer of rights based on contracts, activity of the collective management organisations in the market and extent of the rightholder’s self-determination.
In 2021, there were eight organisations for the collective management of copyright and related rights in Finland. All the organisations have to submit a transparency report to the PRH.
Owing to the duty to provide guidance and to promote good practices as stated in the Collective Management Act, the PRH issued in December 2021 guidelines on preparing transparency reports.
