The competence of the EU to create a neighbouring right for publishers

Research output: Working paper / PreprintWorking paper

Abstract

This paper examines the competence of the EU to introduce a neighbouring right for publishers (including a neighbouring right for press publishers, also called “ancillary copyright”). The assessment of competence is carried out following a step-by-step approach, which involves an analysis of the applicable Treaty norms and an assessment of subsidiarity and proportionality.
