Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre derechos de autor, ¿alguien sabe qué significa 'needletime'? La frase es: "The restriction on independent radio stations which limited them to nine hours of 'needletime' per day."

    Espero que te sirva. . La informacin viene de

    South African legislators will soon begin debating the introduction
    of a performance/broadcast right in sound recordings: generally known
    as needletime. In many countries where this has been applied, the
    right has been one shared by producers (record companies) as well as
    performers. The latest WIPO treaties also go this route.

    I was wondering if anyone has done research in this area and could
    answer the following question:

    How has the performance right in a sound recording (needletime)
    come to include performers' rights to receive a percentage of the
    appropriate royalty for the broadcast of the sound recording? If
    the owner of the copyright in a sound recording is the producer, why
    is it not the exclusive right of the author to authorise performance
    thereof? How did this come to be a right which benefits producers
    and performers? Is there a historical/theoretical basis for this?

    Claro, el texto es sobre licencias para radiodifusoras. El párrafo va:

    Consumers who want to hear a particular kind o music are increasingly likely to be able to find a radio station that concentrates on it. This can reduce the necessity for such puchases. We were told that these effectsad been reinforced by the removal in 1988 of the restriction on independent radio stations which limited them to nine hours of 'needletime' per day. We have been told that this trens is likely to accelerate when high-quality broadcast are introduced.

    Gracias por la ayuda.

    Due to restrictions on the amount of commercial music that could be played on radio in the UK until 1988 (the so-called "needle time" limitation) the station has recorded a great many live performances and studio sessions over the years, many of which have subsequently found their way onto commercially-available LPs and CDs. The station also broadcasts documentaries and interviews.

    Para mí que es el tiempo de tanda comercial, en que pasan jingles
