CISAC

CISAC

CISAC, Serving Authors Worldwide

The World Creators Summit is an event created and organized since 2007 by CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers.
Chaired by Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, until his death on the 20th of May 2012, and French visual artist and painter Hervé Di Rosa (Interim President), CISAC (International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) aims at increasing both the recognition and protection of creators’ rights worldwide. In a global and digital world, CISAC’s main missions are to reinforce the international network of copyright societies, to be the spokesperson of creators and their societies in all international debates and to reassert authors’ inalienable right to live by their creative work.

CISAC 231 members are authors’ societies that hail from 121 countries. Through them, we represent about 3 million creators and publishers of artistic works in all genres including music, drama, literature, audiovisual and the visual arts.
Royalties collected by CISAC’s members in 2011 reached € 7.6 billion (up 1% from 2010)..

Established in 1926, CISAC is an international NGO with head office located in France, and regional offices in Chile, Hungary, Singapore and South Africa. As an international organisation, CISAC’s fundamental role is to facilitate the operation of its member societies with a view to enabling them to seamlessly represent authors across the globe and, in particular, assist them in ensuring that royalties flow to authors for the use of their works anywhere in the world.

CISAC deals primarily with legal, business and technical questions related to royalty flow, digital exchange of information on works, creativity and cultural diversity, the status and rights of creators.
CISAC has a broad audience: the creative and entertainment industries; the “commercial users” of works protected by copyright such as radio and TV broadcasters, cable operators, telecom operators, ISPs, etc.); policy-makers and Government officials (in particular the European Parliament and the European Commission); IT developers and providers; software industry and the manufacturers of recording devices and blank media; Intellectual Property and copyright lawyers, teachers and legal experts; authors’ societies and creators.
