Who owns which rights (and where)? This is the topic of a UK-published article by Sally Ramage. Covering much ground, this useful article also features an extensive bibliography that may be helpful to those reading up on the topic. Her conclusions:
There is more protection for performers than there ever was. Contrary to fears, the better advanced technology becomes, the more it will safeguard performers rights as the criminal fraternity will not be able to keep up with the technological advances, made possible by multinational corporations who are all working in unity against the bandits. There will be inevitable disruption from hackers but on the whole performers will prosper.
