Examining the relations between the laws of copyright, the protection of broadcasts and the aim of building a single market within the European Community, this monograph analyses the long-term changes in the rationales for copyright protection - the influence on British copyright law on the Berne Convention for the protection of authors' rights and the arguments for affording protection to sound recordings and broadcasts. This book highlights the emerging tensions between international and supranational law in attempts to build a single European market and it pays particular attention to the contradictory approaches adopted by the Commission of the European Communities, the European Court of Justice and the Council of Ministers. It concludes by assessing the implications of these approaches for European Community cable and satelite broadcasting policy, the measures which are needed to harmonise protection among member states and the long-term significance for broadcasters of European Community competition policy.
