Policy Recommendations on Regulating Exclusivity in the Field of OMD
This chapter will discuss the policy recommendations that can be made on the basis of our preceding analysis. First, the generally preferable regime of exclusivity will be discussed, which is a market-based statutory license that is improved in a number of aspects in order to better accommodate the needs of musicians and other rightholders (A.). Then, specific recommendations on how existing laws could be feasibly adapted to functionally correspond to the desirable regime will be made (B.). Finally, the admissibility of the proposed legislative improvements will be discussed (C.).
