Legal Protection of Artistic Performance
Leška, Rudolf ; Císařová, Zuzana (referee)
The thesis offers a systematic overview of the law of performers' rights. This specific field of law forms no major area of law by itself, but rather covers various legal regulations that are related to artistic performances. The author argues for specific protection of an artistic performance which emanates from the protection of a persona as it is understood by the theory of natural law. The author thus opposes those who consider the protection of a performer to be only a protection of an investment in the economic competition. That being said, it is impossible to automatically apply authors' rights to performers because of numerous differences between the two. The performer is not creating a new work of art which would enrich the knowledge of mankind, but only performs an existing work of art, making the societal benefit of an authors' work greater. The author therefore opposes the notion that Art. 34(1) of the Czech Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms can be applied to artistic performances. Nevertheless, the protection of artistic performances is necessary because the society does not need only the existence of authors' creations, but also needs the art to be performed, if live art is to exist at all. Today, when live art is endangered more than ever before by technologies allowing...
Performers and term of protection of their rights
Costantini, Simona ; Žikovská, Petra (advisor) ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (referee)
Main objective of this thesis is to examine in detail the topic of performers' intellectual property rights and their term of protection, offering an insight based both on the historical background and the current state of legal regulation (Czech, European and international). Especially, I deal with the changes resulting from implementation of Directive 2011/77/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 September 2011 amending Directive 2006/116/EC on the term of protection of copyright and certain related rights. A significant part is also dedicated to the recently adopted Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances (2012). The introductory chapter consists of a comprehensive historical overview that covers important events and sources of law relevant to performers' intellectual property rights and their term of protection. Certain documents can be considered milestones, such as Rome Convention for the Protection of Performers, Producers of Phonograms and Broadcasting Organizations, the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty and the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances. A substantial part is also dedicated to the harmonisation of term of protection of copyright and certain related rights through European law. The second chapter gives a brief overview of the concept and...
Legal Protecion of Artistic Performance
Leška, Rudolf ; Kříž, Jan (advisor) ; Dobřichovský, Tomáš (referee) ; Srstka, Jiří (referee)
The thesis outlines the law of performers' rights, including its historical and theoretical background, relation to other areas of law, explanation of moral and economic rights of performers, problems of contractual law and issues related to the enforcement of rights. The core of the thesis lies in analyses of the terminology of artistic performances (including the performances of variety and circus artists) and the notion of a performer, the borders between protected and unprotected performances and the relation to a work of art, as well as in practical issues related to the collectively delivered performances by the members of an ensemble and their representation by a so-called joint representative. The thesis focuses on those aspects which are specific to performers or which cause particular difficulties in practical application; in these cases, the author offers his own solutions.
The author and the performer of the musical work as parties to copyright relations in the process of creation and exploitation of the copyright work
Kletenský, Jan ; Křesťanová, Veronika (advisor) ; Holcová, Irena (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to present the legal framework of the copyright and rights related to copyright to authors and performers of musical work. As a relatively complex issue, in my opinion, it is important for authors and performers as artists to have at least a basic idea of what rights and obligations arise in the process of creation and exploitation of musical works and what legal framework of protection the law provides to them. Moreover, this topic is very close to me because I am myself author and performer of musical works. The first chapter deals with the musical work in terms of its individual components, both from legal and music theory point of view. Considering that the criterion of uniqueness of the copyright work does not exclude the use of parts of other works, I also examine the issue of legal uses of foreign works in the process of the creation of copyright works and the issue of plagiarism. At the end of the first chapter I mention the creation of a copyright work by collaboration of multiple authors (which is typical for musical works). In the second chapter, I introduce to the authors the catalogue of their moral and property rights, focusing on those areas that are relevant to musical works, including the duration of their rights and post-mortal protection. The third...

This dissertation entitled CROSSOVER, between the layers of my own staging experience, on the boundaries of forms, genres and not only those, is divided into three parts. All sections are primarily based on my own theatre experience and are interlaced with numerous examples from performances and theatrically performative thinking of selected foreign ensembles. Given the subject matter, the first part primarily deals with Gob Squad and Shunt ensembles and the director Mike Leigh. In the second part, Rimini Protokoll and again Gob Squad are mentioned. The third part is dedicated mainly to the director Tim Etchells and his Forced Entertainment ensemble. My theatre experience is presented in the introductory part of this dissertation; starting with complex shows which represent a symbiosis of all components and are linked by their staging style and formerly discovered drama methods to authorial/devised projects to theatre which implements documentary and technological elements. In the first part of this dissertation, differences and subtle nuances between authorial and devised theatres are examined with focus on the specific devising creative method. The second part of the dissertation is focused on documentary and technologies. The third part consists of subtopics introduced in the previous chapters with respect to crossing boundaries between forms, genres and methodologies, which are more closely related to the phenomena of boundaries between theatre performances/events, fiction/reality, spectator/witness, actor/performer. The methods or the optics with which I work are based on the phenomenon of the mentioned areas and topics. The manner of addressing the issue can be likened to a phenomenological insight.
Straub, Linda ; HRAB, Ondřej (advisor) ; HAVELKA, Jiří (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to present different ways of audience participation that are applied in contemporary theatre practice. The introductory section outlines the issues of engaging the audience in relation to conventional theatrical practice. Subsequently I give a historical overview of important artists of the 20th century, whose work significantly influenced the contemporary perception of possible ways of audience participation in the field of theatre work. In the central part, based on chosen theatre practitioners from the 20th and 21st centuries, I show specific ways of involving the spectator. The final chapter outlines the theoretical discussion of interactive theatre in relation to the concept of aesthetic distance.
Legal aspects of organizing music events
Hálková, Kateřina ; Boháček, Martin (advisor) ; Votava, Tomáš (referee)
The thesis entitled "Legal aspects of organizing music events" deals with musical performances from the perspective of organizers, performers, but also the wider public. The aim is to identify the legal issues that must be seen to by the organizer of musical performances and to evaluate the operation and use of the services of collective rights management societies and to evaluate the impact of copyright infringement and attitude of the society to its violation. The introductory chapter provides an overview of the legislation and discusses copyright and certain organizations that work in this field. The second chapter describes the activities of collective rights management companies. Equally important is the third chapter, which deals with license agreements and the different types of licenses. The final chapter applies the theoretical knowledge gained from previous chapters into practice.

Machuta, Václav ; Boháček, Martin (advisor) ; Patočka, Radim (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with copyright questions related to bands, organisers of musical performances and collective rights managers. It analyses every subject separately as well as their mutual relations. The aim of this thesis is to assess whether the contemporary Copyright Act provides for the copyright position of bands, organisers of musical performances and collective rights managers sufficiently, and also for their mutual judicial relations. The main source of information is the qualitative research method in the form of interviews with musicians and other representatives of music industry and the longterm author's activity in this branch. The work also discusses the certain related rights to the copyright and deals with the admission of the amendment of the directive prolonging the protection of these rights.
