RESOLUTION (61) 23

EXCHANGE OF TELEVISION PROGRAMMES

(Adopted by the Ministers' Deputies on 15 September 1961)

The Committee of Ministers,

Having regard to the Report of the 6th Session of the Committee of Legal Experts on the Exchange of Television Programmes (Doc. CM (61) 63),

Noting,

that the exchange of programmes between television organisations depends largely on the circulation of recordings,

that such circulation must be subordinate to the same legal conditions in each of the countries concerned,

and that this requirement presupposes the existence of a single international body empowered to issue recording licences on behalf of copyright-holders for and within each country,

Recommends that Governments take care that the exercise of the rights of mechanical reproduction by such an international body shall not be hampered.
