Judicial power must interpret laws to support collective management entities in the collection process – Consultant

Praia, Dec 5 (Inforpress) – The former superintendent of the Central Collection and Distribution Office (ECAD) of Brazil considered it “important” that the Judicial power should interpret the current copyright law in order to support SCM in the collection process.

Gloria Braga, who is currently a consultant for the Cabo Verdean Music Society (SCM), spoke Wednesday in statements to Inforpress on the sidelines of a two-day workshop for judges and lawyers on copyright and collective management at Praia, promoted by SCM in partnership with ECAD, the Portuguese Society of Authors (Spauters), the Cabo Verde Superior Council for the Judiciary and the Cabo Verde Bar Association.

According to her, the success of the collection of rights in Brazil is worth a lot for the segmentation of the legal theses on the collection of the judiciary and thanks to this work today they raise more than 2.5 billion euros per year for the use of music.

“We were charging and at times they were questioned and there came the judiciary to say that the law says this and that it exists all over the world, and thanks to that we were able to leverage our collection procedure,” she said, adding that There are not many actions going on today because users already know they need to pay the copyright.
