董皓:析邻接权人“通过信息网络向公众传播”的权利

Neighboring Right Owners’ Right of Communication to the Public through Information Networks

DONG Hao

Abstract: The Copyright Law of People’s Republic of China(“The Law” hereinafter)authorizes neighboring right owners (performers,sounds recorders and video recorders) some “Rights of Communication to the public on Information Networks”. This article notes the following arguments: (1) According to The Law,these rights are different to copyright owner’s “Right of Communication of Information on Networks”. (2) A performer is incapable to enjoy the right of communicate his own performance to the public through information network,but can merely authorize others to communicate his performance to the public on information network. (3) The sounds recorders and video recorders should have the “right of communication to the public on information network by themselves”, whilst The Law neglected itwrongfully. (4) The distinction between “distribution” and “communication to the public on information network” should be clarified by the way of understanding the differences among “work”, “medium of work”, “tangible medium” and  “intangible medium”. (5) It is reasonable to restrict the Radio and Television Stations enjoying the right to communicate to the public on information networks.

Key words: Information network; Neighboring right; Performance; Recording; Intangible Medium

摘要:本文是对现行中国著作权法中,邻接权人“通过信息网络向公众传播”的权利的规范分析。主要有以下观点:第一,《著作权法》中的“信息网络传播权”是著作权人的权利,与邻接权人无涉;第二,表演者只能授权他人通过信息网络向公众传播其表演的权利,而不可能单独享有“自己通过信息网络向公众传播表演”的权利;第三,《著作权法》在录音录像制作者“通过信息网络向公众传播”的权利的规定中,出现了漏洞;第四,区分通过信息网络“传播”与“发行”的关键在于理解音像制品与载体、有形载体和无形载体的区别;第五,广播组织不应该享有类似权利。
