The Only Conference In The World Dedicated To Neighbouring Rights

21 22 JUNE 2022

New to Neighbouring Rights?

“Neighbouring Rights” also called “Related Rights” are called as much because they ‘neighbour/sit
next to the song copyrights. It is a sound recording royalty for any performer who has made an
audible contribution to a recording, and to the rights holder who owns the recording.

What is IAFAR?

The International Association for Artists & Rightsholders (IAFAR) is an organisation that protects, educates and advocates for those of us in Neighbouring/Related Rights.

Advocacy

Our aim is to collaborate with CMO’s and other interested parties to ensure the collection of these rights are as efficient and streamlined as they can be and that all performers receive the income they are rightfully entitled to.

Education

Many people do not know what Neighbouring Rights are and therefore also do not know what their rights are in this area. IAFAR provides workshops, webinars and literature to help educate and de-mystify this part of the music industry.

Community

Providing a community to support, debate and foster this new way of thinking has proved to be beneficial to all members. A common love of beverages also brings us together.

We will be digging into myths and misconceptions about this revenue stream and pulling together as an industry to make it more accessible.
