Introduction
 Copyright definition
 State of “press clipping” activities in
Europe
 Different “derived” information services
 Protection of authors/editors vs.
access to information
International Legal Framework
 Berne Convention for the Protection of
Literary and Artistic Works (1886)
 Paris Act of 1971
 WIPO Copyright Treaty of 1996
 European Directive 2001/29
“The aim or purpose of journalistic information”
International Legal Framework
 Berne Convention
 Protection of news of the day and press
information (mere ítems of press)
 Protection of journalistic works as literary
works
 Fair use of quotes
 Use of articles in periodicals and journalistic co
Berne Convention
 Article 10bis(1) says
“It shall be a matter for legislation in the countries of the
Union to permit the reproduction by the press, the
broadcasting or the communication to the public by wire of
articles published in newspapers or periodicals on current
economic, political or religious topics, and of broadcast
works of the same character, in cases in which the
reproduction, broadcasting or such communication thereof
is not expressly reserved. Nevertheless, the source must
always be clearly indicated; the legal consequences of a
breach of this obligation shall be determined by the
legislation of the country where protection is claimed.”
International Legal Framework
 WIPO Copyright Treaty of 1996 and the
and the TRIPS
 The reproduction right
 The exceptions
 “Three-step” test to authorize or prohibit the
use of protected works.
 A tool for editors to restrict the press abstracting
or press clipping businesses
International Legal Framework
 The reproduction right
Art. 1(4): “The reproduction right, as set out in
Article 9 of the Berne Convention, and the
exceptions permitted thereunder, fully apply in the
digital environment, in particular to the use of works
in digital form. It is understood that the storage of a
protected work in digital form in an electronic
medium constitutes a reproduction within the
meaning of Article 9 of the Berne Convention.”
 The exceptions
Article 10
“(1) Contracting Parties may, in their national legislation,
provide for limitations of or exceptions to the rights granted to
authors of literary and artistic works under this Treaty in
certain special cases that do not conflict with a normal
exploitation of the work and do not unreasonably prejudice the
legitimate interests of the author.”
“(2) Contracting Parties shall, when applying the Berne
Convention, confine any limitations of or exceptions to rights
provided for therein to certain special cases that do not
conflict with a normal exploitation of the work and do not
unreasonably prejudice the legitimate interests of the author.”
International Legal Framework
Situation in Europe
 European Union and copyright issues
 Press Abstracts
 Two types of “works” -Directive (Art. 5(3)(c))
“(c) .. articles on current economic, political or religious topics or of
broadcast works (..) where such use is not expressly reserved, and
as long as the source, including the author’s name, is indicated,
or
use of works or other subject-matter in connection with the reporting
of current events, to the extent justified by the informatory purpose
and as long as the source, including the author’s name, is indicated,
unless this turns out to be impossible;”
Comparison of European
countries
Authorized use Prohibited use
United Kingdom “reporting current events” “reproducing photographs”
France “press reviews” The government may establish
some prohibited uses (Ministry
of Culture, CSPLA)
Germany “Newspaper articles and radio commentaries
for inclusion in press digests”
“For use in reports on current-day events;
extended to cover reports in all kinds of
media, including the Internet”
None expressly
Italy/Denmark/Po
rtg
“news” (in the copyright framework) None expressly
Finland “reuse in newspapers” , “recording news
events”
None expressly
Spain “compilations in forms of reviews or press
reviews (quotes)”
“the author has the right to receive
remuneration “
“the compilations of
journalistic articles for
commercial purposes”
Conclusions. Future risks
 Newspapers distributed without any
type of remuneration
 Clients want news abstracts without
“news”
 Public vs. private goods and the risk
for society
 Lack of many sources of information
Conclusions. Possibilities
 Quality of periodicals
 Agreements between news
organizations and “derived information
services”
 News organizations develop own
“press clipping” businesses
 Exceptions to copyright and added-
value products
