Civil society's views on ancillary rights in response to the public consultation on the role of publishers in the copyright value chain

Question for written answer E-003148-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nessa Childers (S&D)

In its synopsis report on the public consultation on the role of publishers in the copyright value chain, the Commission outlines the results of this consultation on the role of publishers, particularly as it relates to ancillary rights.

The report states that ‘some consumer organisations recognised that a neighbouring right could have a positive impact on the quality of press content and in terms of media pluralism’.

Could the Commission indicate what share of consumer organisations’ submissions recognised this potential positive impact?

Could the Commission further indicate how many submissions from such organisations expressed reservations or concerns about the introduction of the neighbouring right, as well as the share of submissions from ‘users/consumers/citizens’ that expressed reservations or concerns about this right?
