HL Deb 30 October 1956 vol 199 c1153

Clause 7, page 10, line 45, at end insert— ("(8) In so far as the publication of a work, or of part of a work, is, by virtue of the last preceding subsection, not to be treated as an infringement of the copyright in the work, a person who subsequently broadcasts the work, or that part thereof, as the case may be, or causes it to be transmitted to subscribers to a diffusion service, or performs it in public, or makes a record of it, does not thereby infringe the copyright in the work.")


My Lords, this Amendment deals with a small point. It extends the concession given by subsections (6) and (7) of Clause 7. Once an old work has been published under the safeguards provided in subsection (7) it seems reasonable, particularly in the case of a musical or dramatic work, to allow it to be broadcast, relayed. performed in public or recorded. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.

Moved, That this House doth agree, with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(Lord Mancroft.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
