Ancillary Copyright for Press publishers / Presseverlegerleistungsschutzrecht

La solicitud fue rechazada por Mercado Interno, Industria, Emprendimiento y PYMEs.

Sehr geehrte / Sehr geehrter Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Any document that relates to an ancillary copyright
("Leistungsschutzrecht" für Presseverleger), both referring to
existing or proposed laws in EU Member states as well as any
information relating to the introduction of such right into EU
legislation.

In case documents are classified or cannot be released because of
exceptions or special treatment, I am asking for the name and the
reference number of this document, preferably an ARES reference number.

I am especially but not exclusively looking for information in the
form of proposals, memos, studies, notes, meeting records, letters
to the relevant Commissioners and their Cabinet staff members dealing with EU copyright and the protection of press publishers by application or amendment of EU copyright law. I am also including internal communication within the EC to this request.

If information under the scope of regulation 1049/2001 is not held
by DG MARKT but by the Commission, the Commissioner or another DG
or Commission unit, I would like this information to be included in this request.

I am specifically looking for information up until the responsibilities of copyright shifted from DG MARKT to DG Connect in late 2014, I am therefore limiting the scope of this request from 2011 to late 2014.

Please note that the terminology might be blurry, the common terms for this copyright law are Leistungsschutzrecht für Presseverleger (Presseverlegerleistungsschutzrecht) or more colloquially called "Google-Steuer". Proper English terms are Ancillary Copyright or Neighbouring rights (for press publishers), also Google-Tax. Two existing laws include the German Leistungsschutzrecht für Presseverleger (Achtes Gesetz zur Änderung des Urheberrechtsgesetzes vom 7. März 2013) and the Spanish Canon AEDE (Ley 21/2014, de 4 de noviembre, por la que se modifica el texto refundido de la Ley de Propiedad Intelectual, aprobado por Real Decreto Legislativo 1/1996, de 12 de abril, y la Ley 1/2000, de 7 de enero, de Enjuiciamiento Civil).

If documents only partially refer to a narrow interpretation of the scope of this request, I suggest to refrain from redaction of seemingly unrelated parts in the interest of time and effort.

Mit freundlichem Gruß,

Mathias Schindler
