Uniform global standards for artists' rights on the way


In the next two and half months, hope of a global uniform deal for artists’ rights would get attention when the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) meets in Geneva, this December.
 
At its last conference, a delegation of art world, copyright and government experts from eight countries – including representatives of EU called for an international review of royalty rights for artists.  Senegal, Ivory Coast, Brazil and representatives of EU countries, according to WIPO, backed a universal solution. (Details, coming).
