Chapter 2: Copyright and performers’ rights in the creative industries: old laws for new challenges
This chapter outlines the legal framework of copyright and performers’ rights enforced in the UK, with reference to EU regulations where relevant. To this end, it reviews the various conditions for protection in relation to both types of rights today, and retraces some of main developments the intellectual property system endured to adapt to new technologies. The chapter concludes this overview by critically engaging with the distinction placed by intellectual property law between authors and performers which could be perceived as one of the most archaic features of the framework.
