Protect Rights of Authors
ㅇ Campaign 'Fair Remuneration KOREA'
Currently, there is no remuneration for authors guaranteed by domestic law, therefore only overseas compensation is collected and distributed to domestic authors.
In order to resolve this inequality, DGK makes every endeavor in various ways to urge domestic legislation.
ㅇ Study - Remuneration rights of Authors
Commissioned by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and Writers & Directors Worldwide (W&DW), and supported by the Society of Audiovisual Authors (SAA),
Written by copyright law specialist and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya Intellectual Property Chair Professor, Raquel Xalabarder, the study recommends an international legal framework for introducing an unwaivable and inalienable remuneration right for audiovisual authors. This would benefit all parties without impinging on the commercial exploitation by the producer. The framework proposed complies with international and EU copyright obligations.
