WIPO Good Practice Toolkit for CMOs revised

Luke AlcottNews, WIPO

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has revised its draft Good Practice Toolkit for Collective Management Organizations (CMOs) with the intention of finalizing it after the 37th sitting of the Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR).

The purpose of the document is stated as such:

“(The Toolkit) is to compile examples of legislation, regulation and codes of conduct in the area of collective management of copyright and related rights from around the world and to distil them into examples of good practice.”

IAF supports this toolkit as a means to ensure that more authors are able to benefit from positive copyright regimes that will reward them for their creation.

WIPO has welcomed further suggestions by 31 August 2018. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.
