EU one step closer to simplifying music licensing for streaming services

[IDG] Online music service providers are a step closer to more easily operating legally in the E.U. thanks to a vote Tuesday by a European Parliament committee.The Parliament’s legal affairs committee voted unanimously to allow online providers to obtain copyright licenses to stream music across E.U. borders.

The proposed law would allow for a small number of authors’ collective management organizations to operate across E.U. borders.
