Chapter 10: The remuneration of authors and performers in copyright contract law
In many Continental countries, copyright contract law encompasses mandatory rules aimed at protecting creative people in their relationships with publishers and producers. The freedom of contract may especially be restricted to ensure that authors and performers receive an adequate remuneration. The chapter provides an analysis of various statutory provisions in some European countries with a view to achieve this goal. Keywords: Copyright contract, Claim to adequate remuneration, Best-seller clause, Buy out, Termination of contracts, Reversion of rights, Use it or lose it, Reporting obligations, Information asymmetry
