Relevant Rights and Their Applicability to Online Music Uses
The purpose of this chapter is to obtain clarity on the scope of coverage of the relevant online music uses by copyright. The analysis here looks merely at the scope of this coverage. It does not make final statements about the coverage’s intensity, which will be investigated more closely in the following chapters of this part. To find out the scope of this coverage, this chapter looks at the relevant copyright’s economic rights and examines whether they are applicable to the relevant uses. Finding out which exact rights cover which uses is also important for the subsequent analysis of the limits of exclusivity, as the rights typically function as necessary reference points for those limits.
