The results show that the majority of EU Member States did not arrive at the LLP with great enthusiasm. In accordance with the 1992 directive, the European Commission should have submitted a report in 1997 on the progress of implementation. Due to significant delays in several Member States, the Commission was not able to prepare its report until 2002, ten years after the directive came into force. The Commission has committed 13 of the original 15 Member States, including France, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. In some cases, it has initiated infringement proceedings before the European Court of Justice, either because it did not transpose the directive at all or because it did not transpose it properly (Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain were successfully followed). In addition, there were doubts that Scandinavian countries applied RRs in a discriminatory manner, only for national authors or residents (Sweden) or for items published in the national language (Denmark, Finland). Copyright governs the ownership, control and dissemination of information and knowledge assets. Libraries allow people to find, access and use information and knowledge. Copyright is therefore a major concern of libraries, as it governs the core business of libraries.
Before deciding to license a Creative Commons to a plant, there are a number of other factors to consider. The work must be subject to a Creative Commons license, the licensee must have the rights, i.e. he must own the copyright to the work and understand how Creative Commons licenses work. An important point is that Creative Commons licenses are not revocable; This means that a creator cannot prevent anyone from having acquired the work under a Creative Commons license from using the work in accordance with this license. Of course, they can stop distributing the work at any time, but this will not remove from circulation all copies of the plant that already exist under CC license. In addition, collective management companies that manage rights on behalf of authors cannot, in certain legal systems, allow members to license their works because of the way the author transfers their rights to the collective management company. Libraries generally request copies under Section 50 or Section 183 of the Copyright Act. For some electronic resources, the National Library has negotiated provisions for the transmission of documents to Australian libraries, but copyrights continue to apply. In accordance with IFLA guidelines on legal filing legislation, most countries rely on a legal instrument to ensure the completeness of their national filings.
Legal filing powers are generally the subject of separate legislation or may be included in copyright or library law. The Netherlands has taken a different approach, where a national collection of deposits has been set up through voluntary deposit agreements between the Royal Library and publishers. Note the basics you want to have covered by your new license agreement. Be sure to speak to the library or our organization`s lawyer [who may or may not have copyright experience], the librarian, the budget office, the purchasing department and the reference librarian. Before developing a licensing agreement, it is important to speak to a copyright lawyer [who may or may not be the same person as your library or organization`s lawyer].
