Copyright, Football and European Media Rights by Raymond Boyle of the University of Glasgow is the latest entry in CREATe’s Working Paper Series. Boyle considers the position of copyright in the arena of sports content rights and property rights of sporting organizations exploring the issue of whether copyright can be incorporated into sports rights contracts as it has been for many years. Via a series of interviews with key stakeholders the paper identifies the ramifications of this debate in a European context for the existing business models for both specifically football rights holders (FA Premier League, UEFA) and pay-TV broadcasters such as BSkyB and members of the European Broadcast Union (EBU).
