So, who is entitled to income derived from neighbouring or related rights when music is embedded into a film that is theatrically exhibited or in a TV programme that is broadcast to the public or used in other audio-visual works?
How do those entitled to income from neighbouring or related rights ensure that their interest is correctly registered and that they receive the income that is due when the audio-visual work is broadcast or shown theatrically. The aim of this session is to outline the principles and practice applicable to neighbouring or related rights payments when either bespoke music is written specifically or existing music is licensed for use in film and TV.

IAFAR is excited to invite all members to its 4th Annual AGM. This year we will be expanding our board and looking to develop a fixed global structure to our organization.

This discussion details the different ways music creators get paid and from whom (e.g., PROs vs. CMOs; etc.) and how it is different in the U.S. from the rest of the world. This panel will also take a deep dive into how America keeps pace with changes overseas, identifying what roadblocks lie ahead and why they matter. This forum explores US copyright reform including predictions for a true neighboring right in sound recording via the American Music Fairness Act and provides guidance to music creators seeking to maximize audiovisual rights which are available to them.
Join Lee-Anne during the conference as she discusses the ins and outs of who gets paid, where the money comes from, eligibility rules, national treatment, and terminology used. Lee-Anne will go over everything you need to know about neighbouring rights in Canada and some valuable tips. You may even get a brief history on when neighbouring rights came to Canada and what it meant for the music industry.
