equality of treatment and enhanced bargaining power
PROTECTION OF COLLECTIVE MANAGEMENT & EXCLUSIVE ASSIGNMENT

Union

 Regular research into commissioning for contemporary
classical and jazz composers
FAIRNESS OF CONTRACTS
 Statutory Instruments & Judicial Review – April 2015
 Copyright and Rights in Performances (Personal Copies
for Private Use) Regulations 2014
 The 2001 EC Information Society Directive stipulates that
‘private copying harms rights holders and therefore
compensations must be given’
 22 other European countries recognise this and offer
compensation schemes of varying forms, thus giving
songwriters and composers another vital income stream
FAIR COMPENSATION FOR PRIVATE COPYING
Thank you!
