Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights for Legal Practitioners

Legal practitioners need to understand essentially what CMOs do, how they acquire mandates from rights holders and how they license the use of protected works.

Whereas their advice may be required in almost any aspect of collective management, the most common ones are the establishment of a collective management organization, the agreements that are concluded with rights holders and users of protected works, as well as the settlement of tariff disputes and aspects of competition law.

This course aims at building knowledge about the basics of copyright and in particular the international copyright treaties that have bearing on management and enforcement of rights nationally.

It focuses on providing an overview of issues in which legal practitioners are customarily involved in relation to collective management of copyright and related rights.

It also raises awareness of how creators, users, legislators and society at large benefit from the system of collective management.

Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights for Policy Makers

Policy makers have a direct role in legislation and enforcement.  The primary role of policymakers is to lay down the legislative framework for copyright and collective management.

In some countries, they can also have a supervisory role in relation to collective management.

This course is an introduction to policy-making relying on the three main elements of a well-functioning copyright system, i.e., legislation, enforcement and management of rights.

Management of rights is mostly the task of the private sector, but in cases where legislation includes special stipulations on collective management, policymakers have a direct role, too.

The main objective of this course is to examine different legislative frameworks for collective management and study what role Government can play in collective management of rights.

It also raises awareness of how creators, users, legislators and society at large benefit from the system of collective management in music and sound recordings, film and audiovisual, print and publishing, visual arts and photography, and dramatic works.

Academic support is provided by experienced tutors who are expert practitioners in the field of collective management.
