WIPO COLLECTIVE MANAGEMENT Activities

Document prepared by the Secretariat



I. INTRODUCTION
1 The increased economic vitality and cultural vibrancy of the copyright industry, driven largely by technological advancement and the attendant rise in the use of protected works particularly in the digital environment has put collective management of copyright and related rights at the center stage of rights protection for authors and composers. The contribution and potential this industry has for economies worldwide is added impetus for the program of activities which WIPO has set out to achieve in the current biennium. The Copyright Collective Management Division (CCMD), as an integral part of the Organization’s development cooperation program, has remained consistent in its pursuit to assist Member States with the setting up of an appropriate infrastructure to collectively manage the rights of authors, composers and performers, at the national or regional level. The work of the Division is only made possible through the cooperation, support and coordination received from other divisions in WIPO, particularly, the regional bureaus, the WIPO Academy and the Copyright Law Section.
2 The CCMD adopts a tailor-made approach adapted to each region or country in dealing with the major developments and challenges facing collective management organizations, where they exist, or in countries where there are none, in creating an enabling environment for the establishment of a society. The implementation of the CCMD program was carried out on the basis of careful analysis of emerging trends and issues at the international level and the identification of policy options to address these issues. It is further enriched by the development of appropriate programs, including training, to facilitate compatibility of rights management systems in developing countries with international technical standards and systems as well as the integration of digital technologies in collective management operations.
3 The present document reviews WIPO’s work on collective management of copyright and related rights for the period from January 2001 to June 2002, drawing upon the activities carried out by other bureaus or divisions, either on their own, or in cooperation with the CCMD. The report is presented on an activity basis as follows: Regional and National Meetings, Training Courses and Study Visits, Industry Activities, Advisory Missions, Technical Assistance and Information Technology, Studies, Cooperation Agreements and Publications.


II. REGIONAL AND NATIONAL MEETINGS
4 At a regional level, collective management issues were discussed as a part of broader activities organized on copyright and related rights. A number of activities were also initiated by WIPO during the reporting period in addition to a continuation of those already in progress from the preceding biennium. They are reported in the following paragraphs by region or in chronological order.

A. Regional Meetings
5 A High-level Inter-regional Roundtable on Intellectual Property for the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) was organized in cooperation with the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) of the Ministry of Economy of the Government of Portugal, in Lisbon, in February, 2001. The objective of the meeting was to articulate policies and identify technical issues in order to better contribute to the institution-building process and human resources development in the area of intellectual property in LDCs. The meeting constituted an integral part of the preparatory process for the Third United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries, which was organized in Brussels in May 2001.

AFRICA
6 A Regional Seminar on Copyright Protection and the African Literary Industry in the Digital Age organized in cooperation with the Copyright Office of Ghana and the African Publishers’ Network (APNET), took place in Accra, Ghana, in February 2002. Some 143 participants including 12 publishers from the following countries: Benin, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Kenya, Mali, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania and four heads of Copyright Offices from Benin, Nigeria, South Africa and Togo, took part. Two officials of WIPO also participated in the seminar which addressed the intellectual property expectations and needs of African publishers, focusing, in particular, on emerging copyright issues such as the digital delivery of printed materials and on collective management in the field of reproduction rights. Presentations were made by invited speakers from Burkina Faso, Ghana and Malawi, as well as by the representative of the Joint Finnish Copyright Organization (KOPIOSTO) and Honorary President of the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organization (IFRRO), and the Legal Counsel of the International Publishers Association (IPA).
7 The implementation of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS Agreement) in LDCs is at the core of WIPO’s activities given the 2006 deadline for these countries. To this end, a Joint WIPO-WTO Regional Workshop on the Implementation of the TRIPS Agreement was organized for 36 African countries in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in April 2002. The issue of collective management was one of the subject matters dealt with in conjunction with the implementation of exclusive rights included in national legislation. Recommendations were made on several aspects of intellectual property, including collective management organizations, which are not yet established in many LDCs.
8 A sub-regional seminar was organized on copyright and related rights in Maputo, Mozambique, in May 2002, with 50 participants. Representatives from Cape Verde and

Sao Tome and Principe also participated. Lectures on topics related to collective management of copyright were delivered by the Copyright Administrator of the Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA), a representative from the Portuguese General Directorate for Culture (IGAC), and from the Portuguese Authors’ Society (SPA), Lisbon, two WIPO officials and a WIPO Consultant from Switzerland.

ARAB COUNTRIES
9 A Conference on Intellectual Property organized by WIPO and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), in cooperation with the Republic of Azerbaidjan was held in Baku, Azerbaidjan, in May 2001. The meeting, which gathered government officials from each of the 45 member States of ISESCO, coming from Ministries or administrations responsible for copyright and related rights, covered subject matters ranging from the role of intellectual property in promoting technological growth, trade and investment, to the economic and cultural dimensions of collective management of copyright and related rights, as well as the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT), piracy, traditional knowledge and folklore. Lectures were presented by representatives from the World Association of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (WASME), the Center for Information Technology and Intellectual Property (CITIP), the University of Applied Sciences of Canton Solothurn (Switzerland) and Business Software Alliance (BSA).
10 A WIPO Sub-regional workshop on Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights was organized in cooperation with the Government of Morocco and the assistance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France, in Rabat, Morocco, in June, 2001. The workshop constituted a specialized forum for exchanging views and sharing experiences among policy makers including managers of copyright and related rights. Several in-depth discussions of specific items related to collective management of copyright and related rights allowed for a genuine assessment of the success and failure of these systems in the respective countries. At the end of the workshop, a plan of action intended for Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia was adopted.
11 In cooperation with the Ministry of Information of the State of Bahrain, an

Inter-Regional Meeting on Copyright and Related Rights was held in Manama, Bahrain, in February 2002. The objective of the meeting was to provide a forum for an inter-regional exchange of experiences on standards of protection in the field of copyright and related rights, particularly in light of the implementation of the TRIPS Agreement. The meeting was attended by representatives from 26 countries and one session was dedicated to discuss issues concerning the collective management of copyright and related rights and the functioning of collective management organizations in a number of participating countries.


ASIA AND THE PACIFIC REGION
12 A Regional Symposium on Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights for Asian and Pacific Countries was held in Mumbai, India, in December 2001. It was organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the Government of India, and the Indian Performing Right Society (IPRS) with the assistance of the Japan Copyright Office (JCO).

Models of regional cooperation among collective management organizations were also discussed.
LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN REGION
13 A WIPO official participated in the International Forum on Audiovisual Performances organized by the Ibero Latino-American Federation of Performers (FILAIE) and the Uruguayan Collective Management Society (SUDEI), in Montevideo, in May 2001. The Forum preceded the General Assembly of FILAIE, and coincided with the events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of SUDEI, the oldest performers collective management society in Latin America (1951-2001).
14 In September 2001, a WIPO Workshop on the Economic Importance of Copyright Industries in the MERCOSUR Countries was organized in cooperation with the Council of Copyright of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Uruguay, in Montevideo. Delegates from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and representatives from the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI) and the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR) attended the meeting. Lectures were given by invited speakers from those countries and by WIPO officials on collective management of copyright and related rights. The meeting sought to provide an overview of the market structure of the key copyright industries and achieved this objective.
15 The Third WIPO Meeting of Heads of Copyright Offices of Latin America was held in Quito, Ecuador, in November 2001. The meeting, which was organized in cooperation with the Intellectual Property Institute from Ecuador (IEPI), gathered 23 participants from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, and the Secretariat of Economic Integration of Central America (SIECA). A presentation of the study on the question of control and legitimization of collective management organizations in Latin America and some countries in Europe, prepared by a WIPO consultant from Mexico, was made to the audience.
16 A Regional Forum on Collective Management of Intellectual Property Rights of Visual Creators – MERCOSUR Countries, was organized in cooperation with the Secretariat of MERCOSUR, in Montevideo, Uruguay, in December 2001. The Forum, following the global strategy adopted at the meeting held in Mexico in 2000, was held to present studies prepared on the protection of visual creators and promoting collective management systems among the various rights owners and institutions concerned.
17 A WIPO Regional Workshop on Collective Management of Copyright for Countries of Central America was jointly organized in San José, Costa Rica, in April 2002, with the Registrar of Copyright and Related Rights of the Republic of Costa Rica, the Association of Music Composers and Authors of Costa Rica (ACAM) and SIECA. Participants from collective management organizations of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Panama attended some practical sessions on various topics directly linked to the tasks carried out in any authors’ societies. They were informed about the study carried out by the General Society of Authors in Spain (SGAE) on the software “Sistema de gestión de Sociedades” (SGS) that it has developed, and certain elements for the possible design and implementation of a regional action plan on collective management of copyright were identified.
18 At the Second Session of the Permanent Committee on Cooperation for Development Related to Intellectual Property held from February 5 to 8, 2001 (see document PCIPD/2/3), the CCMD presented a detailed report on the development of a regional system on the collective management of copyright and neighboring rights in the Caribbean region. Since then, great progress has been made with the project. The regional center, Caribbean Copyright Link (CCL), has been accepted as an Associate Member of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC). This important step allows works of the Caribbean regional database to be included in the CISAC international works file and be attributed an international work code (ISWC), as a unique identification number attached to the work for its entire life. The CCL will then provide back-office services to national societies and facilitate their processing royalty distributions.
19 These positive achievements of the CCL were highlighted at the meetings of the CCL Board in Bridgetown, Barbados, in May 2001, in Trinidad and Tobago in November 2001, and in Ochos Rios in March 2002 respectively. A progress report was then presented at the Fourth WIPO Regional Meeting of Heads of Intellectual Property Offices of Caribbean Countries, held in Paramaribo, Suriname, in June, where the Governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago were represented. The representatives of The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, the Caribbean Regional Negotiating Machinery (CRNM) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) attended the meeting in an observer capacity. The Chair of the Regional Committee on Intellectual Property and Electronic Commerce and the President of the Board of (CCL) were also present.
20 WIPO’s contributions to this project are geared towards providing assistance in the promotion activities of the CCL with a view to enhancing their capacity, without compromising on the speed and efficiency of the service. The related training objectives were achieved in the course of 2001 with continuous assistance still being provided by SGAE on the use of the distribution module, and the first royalties’ distribution using the new regional system was made in July 2002.

21 The implementation of the Caribbean regional project calls for as many new societies as the system can support to be brought into the system. This will require government support in order to deliver on the mandate conceived for the project by the Ministers responsible for intellectual property matters in June 1999 and reiterated in a recommendation adopted in Paramaribo which reads as follows: “The Ministers note the progress made on the Project for the Establishment of a Regional System for Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights in the Caribbean […] and re-affirm their support for the Project and encourage the establishment of collective management societies in countries where there are no such organizations”. Since then, contacts have been made in Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Belize and Suriname with respect to promoting the said project.
