In April this year, the Czech Copyright Act has been significantly amended as regards the collective management of copyright as well as other so far controversial issues. The Amendment (Act No. 102/2017 Coll.) belatedly implements the Directive 2014/26/EU on collective management of copyright and related rights and multi-territorial licensing of rights in musical works for online use in the internal market, and thus it brings a much needed element of legal certainty into the current unanchored practice of collective management organizations. In addition, polishing of the concept of “employee's copyright" can be mentioned; a presumption of irrevocability of the employee's consent to assignment of his/her property rights in a copyrighted work to a third party shall apply in the future.
