The clause in Turkish Copyright Law No: 5846 for broadcasting companies to get permission from the phonogram owner collecting societies for usage of the phonograms on radio-TVs has been dropped by this regulation.

The application of the regulation had been terminated by the Council of State. MOC (Ministry of Culture) has raised an objection to termination of the regulation and the decision was cancelled.

However, MUYAP and MESAM (Musical Work Owners of Society of Turkey) re-appealed to the Council of State for the termination of application of articles 6 (last two subsection), 7, 8.

With the final decision of Council of State, the application of the above mentioned articles is terminated.
