The objective of this study is to examine the current status quo of implementation of the Directive, and to carry out an in-depth review of the practices in selected Member States.

The study provides a brief overview of the international framework concerning the term of protection for performers and phonogram producers, and analyses the main objectives and provisions of the Term Extension Directive. It explores in-depth the implementation and practices in seven selected Member States, and identifies best practices that can serve as a model for other EU Member States. In addition, the long term effects of the Directive are considered, both within the EU (in relation to relevant EU policies) and outside the EU (in relation to its main trading partners).
