Is Collective Administration of Copyrights Justified by the Economic Literature?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Ariel Katz (Toronto - Law) asks Is Collective Administration of Copyrights Justified by the Economic Literature?

ABSTRACT: On March 2007 Canada's Competition Bureau hosted a symposium on the interface between competition and intellectual property. This short comment responds to a paper presented by Professor Jacques Robert in which he argued that the economic literature on bundling of information goods provides a novel justification for the collective administration of copyrights and made a few other recommendations relating to collective administration of copyright. This comment critically examines this bundling argument as well as other recommendations made by Robert.
