VUJINOVIC & DJOKIC ADVISED SERBIAN ACTORS' ORGANIZATION IN THE PROCESS OF OBTAINING LICENCE FOR ACTIVITIES OF COLLECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF PERFORMERS' RIGHTS

Serbian Actors' Organization obtained a license for carrying out activities of collective management of performers' rights, from the Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia. Vujinovic & Djokic law firm represented the organization through the entire process of foundation, meeting the requirements, and obtaining the license.

We would like to point out that since the amendments to the Law on Copyright and Related Rights, from September 2019, performers who appear in video content (primarily on film and television) were given the right to compensate their pecuniary rights, among which the most important is the right to remuneration for broadcast and re-broadcast of their performance, through collective management organization. The lack of this right in previous regulations was a long-standing problem that affected actors and made it impossible for them to collect their pecuniary rights.

By obtaining a license for carrying out activities of collective management of performers' rights, the Serbian Actors' Organization becomes one of seven collective management organizations in the Republic of Serbia, which operate as non-profit organizations and enable authors and performers to exercise their rights in accordance with the law.

We are delighted to be a part of this important event at a time when the protection of copyright and related rights is increasingly institutionalized, and thus contributes to development of culture and creative industries as an imperative for development of modern society.
