Chapter Summary

'Broadcasting' is a technology of telecommunication. This technology is administered primarily by so-called telecommunications law. This technology is also subject to broadcasting law and copyright law. What is 'broadcasting'? What is a 'broadcasting organisation'? What are 'the rights of broadcasting organisations'? In this Chapter, these questions are answered to provide a clear idea of what the rights of broadcasting organisations are. 'The rights of broadcasting organisations' may be understood in two different senses. In order to understand what the rights of broadcasting organisations are, a distinction must be drawn between the regimes which govern the right to make a broadcast and the rights in what is broadcast. The Chapter clarifies 'broadcasting', 'broadcasting organisations' and 'the rights of broadcasting organisations'.

Keywords: broadcasting law; broadcasting organisations; copyright law; telecommunication law
