As part of its ongoing investigation, the European Commission has published the commitments presented by CISAC (Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) and certain national collecting societies concerning their standard model contract for the management of public performance rights. The Commission was concerned that the “membership clause” and the “territoriality clause” may restrict competition. The parties have offered to modify both clauses. Interested parties have 30 days to submit their observations. If this so-called “market test” is found to be acceptable, the Commission can declare the commitments binding and close the proceedings.
