3. Please explain whether and how Slovenia 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 interactive services.
The Slovenian Copyright Act provides an exclusive right for the producer of phonograms to reproduce his phonograms (see Article 129.1). This right covers both direct and indirect reproductions, including those made from a broadcast. The Copyright Act has a broad definition of the right of reproduction, which expressly includes also the saving in electronic form (see Article 23(2)). This definition applies also to related rights (see Article 4(2)). The protection of phonograms in the context of digital transmission and interactive services is presently under discussion in the framework of a possible new Instrument of protection within WIPO.
