Phillipe has the following approach to the audiovisual sector :
As far as the management of audiovisual rights is concerned, digital rights are not singled out from the rest of the performing (or mechanical) rights allocated to directors/ scriptwriters (author’s rights) or producers /actors (neighbouring rights).
However, it is definitely a future source of large income in an ever more digital world where on-demand consumption tends to supersede linear usage (cfr the surge of SVOD offers operated by Netflix, Hulu, Disney +, HBO Max and the likes).

As a consequence, audiovisual copyright owners will increasingly claim accurate reports on the digital usage of their works and to be paid accordingly.
The CopyrightCoins® environment will meet these demands and become a future and beneficial solution for all parties :

  1. First and foremost, copyright owners, as in the music industry, will be paid more money, faster!
  2. TV’s and SVOD platforms have always been willing to clear and pay content rights according to their actual usage the collecting societies’ catalogues
  3. Eventually, collecting societies will render more accurate statements to their members and charge minor administrative costs
If I don't ask, they can't say yes!
