Collecting societies are organisations set up by various categories of rights owners to administer their rights collectively. The profile of collective licensing has recently been raised with the development of digital delivery and the advent of digital rights management, which pose a threat to the traditional international model of collective management and licensing of rights.

This new book provides comprehensive analysis of collective licensing, primarily from a UK perspective, while placing UK rights management in an international context. It includes detailed specialist coverage and analysis of collective licensing law and practice, and explores the impact of new digital deliveries on collective licensing.

  • Includes comprehensive coverage of the UK and international scene, with discussion of policy
  • Discusses the likelihood of collective licensing surviving in the digital age
  • Written by highly-respected authors, both in-house lawyers at UK Collecting Societies.
