EU Commission's Position

As adopted 14th September, 2016

Recital 27

Covering the costs of licensing

As mass digitisation projects can entail significant investments by cultural heritage institutions, any licences granted under the mechanisms provided for in this Directive should not prevent them from generating reasonable revenues in order to cover the costs of the licence and the costs of digitising and disseminating the works and other subject-matter covered by the licence.

EU Council's Position

As adopted 25th May, 2018

Recital 27

Determining territorial scope and covering the costs of licensing

The contracting cultural heritage institutions and collective management organisations should remain free to agree on the territorial scope of the licence, the licence fee and the allowed uses. Uses covered by such licence should not be for profit making purpose, including when copies are distributed by the cultural heritage institution, such as in the case of promotional material about an exhibition.

At the same time, as the digitisation of the collections of cultural heritage institutions can entail significant investments, any licences granted under the mechanisms provided for in this Directive should not prevent cultural heritage institutions from generating reasonable revenues for the purposes of covering the costs of the licence and the costs of digitising and disseminating the works and other subject-matter covered by the licence.
