Abstract

This chapter addresses the specific supervision and regulation of collecting societies under Dutch and EU law. Supervision on collecting societies is deemed necessary, because they often have a monopoly position. But abuse of a dominant position may also be unlawful under general tort law, the Dutch Competition Act and European anti-trust law. Therefore, apart from the regulations specifically applicable to collecting societies, relevant case law and issues in the area of Dutch and EU competition law are also dealt with.

Keywords: collecting societies, copyright, monopoly, regulation
