Limitations in the Distribution of Public Performance Royalties in Ireland
Healy, Ron and Timoney, Joseph (2009) Limitations in the Distribution of Public Performance Royalties in Ireland. In: Conference on Intellectual Property , June 12-13, 2009, Iona College, New Rochelle, USA.
This paper provides an overview of the administration of Public Performance copyright in Ireland, while considering the motivation behind the introduction of Copyright legislation almost 300 years ago. We explore the idea that the administration of modern copyright helps to create the same environment that existed prior to legislation for copyright. We suggest a technological means by which the problems experienced by developing artists, in terms of the administration of public performance licensing, might be addressed.
