AGICOA and its partners organizations
Alliance partners accommodate different national legal requirements but embody common practices to manage Rightsholders' interests in a consistent, cost efficient way. The single declaration of an audiovisual work enables the collection of royalties wherever collective management operates.
Alliance partners have deep knowledge of their own broadcast markets. Aggregation of the interests of international rightsholders adds considerable weight to the collective licensing agreements they negotiate with national and local operators. Equal treatment of all rightsholders, irrespective of size and nationality, is guaranteed.
