Must Article 3(1) of the InfoSoc Directive be interpreted as precluding a national provision or practice according to which the provision of physical facilities for enabling or making a communication – such as television sets in hotel rooms or hotel fitness rooms – is regarded as communication to the public when, while the transmission signal, in addition, is retransmitted to the physical facilities via the hotel’s own cable distribution system, that cable retransmission takes place lawfully on the basis of a licence acquired by the hotel?
