Exklusivität und Kollektivierung
Das skandinavische Modell der Erweiterten Kollektiven Lizenz (Extended Collective Licensing)
Subject of this thesis is the Scandinavian ""extended collective licensing"" model (""ECL""), which allows the licensing of entire repertoires of copyrighted works to users through the extension of collective agreements to outsiders. Despite its growing popularity the extended collective license has not yet been scientifically examined in a satisfactory and exhaustive way. Against this background, based on a comprehensive analysis the nature, the structure and the relevant aspects of this legal concept are explored in more detail. Based on these findings the work centres on the question of whether and to what extent the extended collective license could be utilized as a possible solution in Germany and Europe in the near future. Just at the interface of exclusivity and collectivization the Nordic model might ensure the balance of interests in certain areas in copyright law.
