This paper studies how the Regulation of the cross-border portability of online content services will affect content business like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Spotify. Our thesis is that the cross-border portability Regulation requires also the reform of the legal Audiovisual framework -mainly the Audiovisual Media Services Directive 2010/13-, as well as the Copyright Directive 2001/29.

The present paper analyses various conditions of the digital content market, such as barriers to competition and bottlenecks to intellectual property (IP) rights generation and management, as well as the collective copyright management system. The paper will discuss the need to liberalise processes for licensing and transferring IP to allow for new types of contracts.

The presented conclusions are the results of a four-year project studying the impact of emerging platforms and the development of a digital consumer segment willing to pay for streaming content. It provides a better understanding of the digital distribution scenario, taking into account an economic and a legal perspective, as well as audience measurement and impact on the media landscape.

In this work, we suggest that there is hope and reason for media companies to expect a recovery from the current crisis. Sales, subscriptions, and online rentals experienced significant growth in 2013, bringing them closer to the sales figures of hardware such as DVDs and blu-ray discs. And, although piracy is an issue in the entertainment industry, there remains room for revenue growth.

The core theme of this book is to rethink authors’ rights and their regulation in Spain and Europe. It does a simple analysis of the current system regarding the intellectual property of authors, artists and producers, with special reference to the sector of digital content. As Manuel Desantes’s prologue says: “Intellectual and industrial property has today become a pivotal feature of this new society”.
