Abstract

This paper presented in two parts, outlines the development of the extended collective licensing regulations in the UK in Part One. In doing so, the paper draws a line through the failed attempt of the Gowers Review 2006 to the success of the Hargreaves Review 2011 and ultimately to the successful implementation of an extended collective licensing scheme in 2014. Part Two reviews the scheme, which has now been in place for more than one year and explores the progress of the licensing organisations in implementing the scheme. Furthermore, from the perspective of one of the oldest extended collective licensing schemes in the world - i.e., Denmark – the paper questions whether the UK can learn any lessons from the Danish system in moving forward.
