Secondary rights are often discrete,
requiring true vision to notice them.
As an independent producer of audiovisual works, you are not necessarily obligated to join a Collective Management Organization to obtain payment of secondary rights. However, it is recommended that you join such an organization as it will negotiate licenses with operators, oversee all legal matters, track the use of your works, and collect payment on your behalf. AGICOA is a non-profit organization that works for rightsholders in an efficient, professional, and transparent manner.
Entrust the management of your rights and collection of royalties to the Rights People!
