Audiovisual-Heritage Working Group (WG3)

Audiovisual Sector and Cultural Heritage Institutions (WG3)

The Commission's objective is to facilitate the deposit and online accessibility of films in the EU both for commercial purposes and non-commercial cultural and educational uses. It remains difficult for online service providers to develop catalogues of European films for online availability, particularly those which are "out-of-distribution" i.e. works whose rights holders are unwilling or unable to exploit on an individual basis: it may be difficult to identify the existence of films, or the rights may be complex and time-consuming to clear.

The Group should deliver concrete solutions for both commercial and non-commercial uses.
