ECSA autumn meeting concluded

Created: 2010-09-29 18:22:21

The European Composer and Songwriter Alliance held its’ autumn session during this years’ Artmusfair conference in Warsaw, Poland. The ECSA meeting, as well as the meeting of the three pillars APCOE, ECF and FFACE took place on the 23rd of September. The major outcome of the meetings was the endorsement of a position paper on “Collective Management of Authors’ Rights in Europe”, which is based on the ECSA Resolution adopted in June in Bilbao. The position paper outlines pending problems with the licensing of music for online uses, proposes a solution advocated by ECSA and highlights some ideas for how this can be achieved. ECSA delegates were further briefed on the Global Repertoire Database and on the Pan European Portal as advocated by a group of stakeholders and briefed on the budgetary situation of the alliance by Secretary General Patrick Ager. The meeting was followed by a session of ECSA’s Coercion Committee.
