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.

Keywords: ancillary copyright; publishers; press publishers; neighbouring right; competence; internal market; lawmaking; European Union
