3. Please explain whether and how Sweden protects against both the direct and indirect reproduction of phonograms as required by TRIPS Article 14.2, including by digital transmission in the context of subscription or interactive services.
According to Article 46 of the Copyright Act "a phonographic record, a film or another material support on which sounds or moving images have been recorded may not without the authorization of the producer be reproduced or made available to the public until fifty years have elapsed from the year in which the recording was made, or, if the recording was published or made public within fifty years from the recording, after the year in which the recording was first published or made public. As a reproduction shall also be considered the transfer of the recording from one such support to another". From this follows that the protection applies also to all forms of indirect reproduction including where a copy is made on the basis of a broadcast or other transmission.
