“Netflix taxes” as tools for supporting European audiovisual ecosystems: Policy interventions for rights retention by independent producers

Onderzoeksoutput: Chapterpeer review

Samenvatting

With the transposition of Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD), more EU Member States decided to introduce investment obligations for non-domestic VOD providers, also known as “Netflix taxes”. This chapter explores the key features of investment obligations as regulatory tools that are supposed to remove the asymmetry between linear and nonlinear providers. An area of front-rank importance for policy intervention with the investment obligations is ensuring rights retention by independent producers and reducing tensions in contractual relationships with global providers of VOD services. We show how investment obligations may be used not only to increase financial support for European works but also to ensure that rights arrangements between independent producers and global VOD providers are fit for purpose.
