Question for written answer  E-001220/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Niklas Nienaß (Verts/ALE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Directive 2019/790 (‘Copyright Directive’) and specifically its Article 18

Directive 2019/790, and specifically its Article 18, gives authors and performers a right to appropriate and proportionate remuneration when they license or transfer their exclusive rights. Member States have until 7 June 2021 to implement this directive on copyright and related rights in the digital single market. Throughout the debate prior to the adoption of this directive, there was a consensus that performers were not receiving fair remuneration from online uses such as streaming.

Most Member States are currently in the process of drafting the transposition legislation and some have already published drafts and submitted them to public consultation.

In order to support Member States in their efforts to best provide performers with ‘appropriate and proportionate’ remuneration, could the Commission please confirm that ‘performer’ here refers to all performers, including audio and audio-visual performers?
