A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law and the case has been discussed on the Kluwer Copyright Blog here.
The CJEU held that the price of a hotel room should not be regarded as an ‘entrance fee’ in relation to the exclusive right of broadcasters provided for in Article 8(3) of Directive 2006/115, as the communication of television and radio broadcasts through television sets installed in hotel rooms does not constitute a communication made in a place accessible to the public against payment of an entrance fee.
