Section 108(1)(a) provides that a performer shall have the exclusive right to prevent any person from exploiting his or her performance. Such rights are infringed where a person, without the performer's consent, broadcasts live, includes in a cable programme or makes (otherwise than for his or her private domestic use) a record of the whole or any substantial part of a performance (s.109). Term of protection for performances is 50 years after the end of the calendar year of the performance (s. 10).
