The Asia-Pacific Music Alliance, a continental alliance of CIAM, held its second General Assembly on November 14th. Taking place during the CISAC and organised Creators Seminar, the assembly allowed music creators to learn about the announced copyright buy-out study as well as to welcome new members from India (the 20th member of APMA) and Myanmar.
At the Creators Seminar, two panels treated pressing concerns of the creative community: transfer of value and copyright buy-out. MCAI Hon. General Secretary Ashish Rego was invited to join the transfer of value panel where he presented the current problems in India. With copyright buy-out, creators are being pressured into accepting lump-sum upfront payments for their work, particularly in audiovisual. It removes the possibility to receive remuneration if a creator’s work becomes popular since future revenues have been signed away.
