CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers, works towards increased recognition and protection of creators' rights. As of 2004, CISAC numbers 210 authors' societies from 109 countries and indirectly represents more than 2 million creators within all the artistic repertoires: music, drama, literature, audio-visual works, graphic and visual arts. The total amount of royalties collected by CISAC's member societies, on their own national collection territories, amounted in 2003 to more than €6,2 billion. Despite the challenging environment (digital piracy, decline of CD sales, etc.), this represents an increase. CISAC members have strived to ensure that creators from around the world benefit from the ever-increasing popularity of their works and the development of new uses. It should be noted that income from music currently represents well over 90% of all revenue. CISAC's activities are aimed at both improving the position of authors and composers as well as enhancing the quality of the collective administration of their rights around the world. Today, faced with the increasingly easy and rapid circulation of creative works, CISAC has expanded its activities to meet the new challenges of the digital age. From historical archives on intellectual property, to current data on the business of collective administration; from the management of international standards, to the creation of a worldwide network linking member societies—CISAC is, more than ever, a provider of services for its members. CISAC was founded in 1926 and is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation. Its headquarters are in Paris, with regional offices in Budapest, Buenos Aires and Singapore.

International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition Views: 9881
Rating: 1   [rate this resource] [report errors]

The size and scope of product counterfeiting has skyrocketed in recent years. The United States economy is losing millions of dollars in tax revenue and tens of thousands of jobs because of the manufacture, distribution and sale of counterfeit goods. This decrease in revenue results in fewer schools, hospitals, police, roads, etc. The actions of counterfeiters also make it harder for legitimate retailers to compete in the marketplace. Counterfeiting results in decreased retail sales and lost jobs as honest intellectual property owners are forced to cut back work forces because of decreased sales. Counterfeiters are not innocent little con artists or isolated street peddlers simply trying to make a few extra dollars. The truth is they steal from the corporations, steal from the community, steal from the consumers they deceive and are only concerned with lining their own pockets.
