Spain Moves to Address Rights Ownership in Rules of Engagement with Streamers

Spain Moves to Address Rights Ownership in Rules of Engagement with Streamers

The horse has not left the stable. This summer, Spain’s government unveiled a crucial draft Audiovisual Communication Services Law aimed at implementing an E.U. directive which in Spain’s case will oblige streaming services to invest in Spanish content.

The bill established a quota obligation at 3.5% of global platforms’ annual revenues – which pales in comparison with France, of course, where OTT players – Netflix, Amaxon, Apple TV – are required from this year to invest 20%- 25% of yearly turnover.
