neighbouring rights


neighbouring rights
Rights which extend the original concept of protection of copyright in an author's original work, such as:
• The rights of performers (for example, actors, singers or musicians) to give or withhold consent to the exploitation of their performances.
• The rights of producers of sound recordings and films to give or withhold consent to the reproduction of their recordings or films.
• The rights of broadcasters or cable programme makers to authorise or prohibit the use of their programmes.
This term is used in many continental European jurisdictions. Although these rights are recognised under English law as specific categories of rights, the expression "neighbouring rights" has no precise meaning or definition under English law.
