[Follow-up question] Does the reproduction right for phonograms under Italian law include reproductions made from broadcasts, as well as the digital transmission of both temporary and permanent reproductions?
Under Article 13 of the Italian Copyright Law No. 633/1941, the authors' right of reproduction "has for its object the multiplication of copies of the work by any means". The wording therefore applies to all kinds of reproduction, including those made from broadcasting or by digital means. Article 72 of the law specifically provides the same rule for the reproduction of phonograms. The specific issue as to whether the right of reproduction also includes digital temporary reproduction is still open and under discussion at national and international level.
