BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partner Dr.Martin Schaefer has made a contribution to the specialist magazine musikmarkt (06/2015) entitled “Four misunderstanding on copyright contract law”. In the article, he explains for what reasons the idea of a “copyright minimum wage based on copyright contract law” is, on closer inspection, not suitable as a general solution for the creative economy. Dr Schaefer says here: “The idea of copyright for authors is not that of a suitable wage, but of a suitable participation. Copyright grants the author a participation right in the possible success.” The entire article can be accessed by subscribers here.
